(HorizonPost.com) – Zakir Siddiqui, a TikTok influencer, who describes himself as having a “viral Indian man” with a “black belt in first dates” recently recounted a “nightmare” first date he had with a woman who, unbeknownst to him, invited her parents along, Fox News reported.
According to Siddiqui, he was matched with a woman named Priyanka on the dating site Bumble. In her profile, she stated, “It’s either this or an arranged marriage.” Siddiqui said he thought initially thought her profile message was a joke. After chatting with her online, he decided they had some things in common so he asked her on a date.
For their first date, the two agreed to have dinner at an Indian restaurant. When he met Priyanka at the restaurant, she led him to the table where Siddiqui was stunned to discover her parents seated there.
While surprised by their presence, Siddiqui greeted them warmly. In recounting the date, he equated the dinner to an arranged marriage and joked that it was the end of his dating career.
As the awkward date progressed, Siddiqui was grilled by Priyanka’s parents who asked him about his background and career. He said from their reactions, it appeared that Priyanka’s parents weren’t impressed with his answers.
Priyanka’s father then suggested that Siddiqui’s parents join them for dinner but since his parents lived very far away, Siddiqui declined.
At this point, Priyanka’s father announced that the date was over. He then told his daughter it was time to leave.
In his video, Siddiqui compared the date to an interrogation and expressed surprise that what he thought was just a first date turned out to be a family meeting leading to an arranged marriage.
In the video, which has been viewed more than 20 million times, Siddiqui said the date left him “f*cking traumatized.”
