Dramatic title I know, but actually this little concept is so forward-thinking and fantastic, we have to share it around as much as we can and hope that it takes off EVERYWHERE.
Basically, a bar in Florida has come up with an ingenious way for women on a date, to alert the staff if something is not quite right – and in this scary new world of Tinder and online dating that situation is sadly very common…
Is your date not who they said they were? Does something feel not quite right? Are you regretting agreeing to meet up but unsure what to do next? Perhaps you are even in a relationship which has suddenly started to turn sour and you feel afraid of your partner but don’t know what to do?
Order an Angel Shot from the barman and help will arrive in a very discreet way – choose your drink with ice, neat or with lime to be even more specific as to what you need…
I couldn’t love this anymore and would be over the moon to see this kind of system in place far and wide! The internet has provided the perfect territory for unsavoury types to prey on the vulnerable and whilst it can be a fab way to meet your match, it can also be very dangerous.
The inspiration for the Angel shot came from a similar campaign called ‘ask for Angela’.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if every bar created it’s very own ‘drink code’ with the relevant information displayed in the female toilets?
Let’s get this going ladies and see if we can make this happen! Share and tag your local bars and get them involved.
