While online dating became a part of our lives, many women have horror stories with their dates not being who they said they are.

Restaurants around the world are looking for ways to make women feel safe to bring their dates to their establishments.

One Hooters in South Africa, posted a note in the women’s bathroom with instructions on how to get away from their dates safely.

They posted a sign in the women’s bathroom, instructing them on how to get help from bar tenders without making a fuss.

The sign reads: “Are you on a date that isn’t going well?

“Is your Tinder or Plenty of Fish date not who they said they were on their profile?

“Do you feel unsafe or even just a bit weird?

“We’re here to help: Just go to the bar and order an Angel Shot.

“Angel Shot Neat: Your bartender will escort you to your vehicle.

“Angel Shot With Ice: Your bartender will call and Uber or Lyft for you.

“Angel Shot With Lime: Your bartender will call the police.

“We’ll handle things discreetly, and with no of fuss. (We’ve been there and we want you to know that you’re in good hands).”

Renaldo Gouws posted a photo of the sign to Facebook, where it has been shared many times.

People pointed out that this idea originated from the Iberian Rooster restaurant, which is located in St. Petersburg, Florida.

The sign was also posted in a restaurant in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, by the local rape crises center.
