First up, Laura's obsessed with the original 'quiet quitters' and they're pigeons.You can see why here. There's a bit of a conspiracy theory going on tiktok where people are claiming that they've been conned by restaurant owners! They are saying that they have been chatting to people on dating apps, and teeing up a date at a restaurant only to be stood up at the restaurant.So what do they do? Well, most of them end up buying dinner and drinks for themselves! Is this the most ridiculous conspiracy theory you've ever heard or do you think there's merit here?

I grew up in a household that was not good at resolving conflict so learning on the go now -I was ghosted by a guy who has come back and apologised for treating me poorly. I accepted the apology and we kept chatting. Last night I sent him a meme of a cat (he has a cat). We got onto the topic of dating and so on. I asked if he thought things would be different or the same if we dated now. He said probably the same and that we aren’t compatible because I have a dog! My dog is a small non barky toy poodle and is crate trained, sleeps in his own room and is an angel. So even though this guy and I get on super well and the sexy time was great at the time, his deal breaker on compatibility is because I have a dog - yet he has a cat…Listen Now
