One user commented, “She should show the frugal fellow a bit of understanding given today’s economic woes. That seems extreme. I mean, maybe he isn’t always frugal, but he’s struggling right now like so many people are.” Another user added, “You didn’t even give him a chance based on a piece of cheese.”
Some users went further, suggesting that Dafna’s behavior was unacceptable. One user on Twitter wrote, “Having a date walk out on you for refusing a $3 slice of cheese? Dodged a bullet. She made a TikTok about it while walking home? Dodged a cannonball.” Another user commented, “If three dollars can put the brakes on living happily ever after, maybe keep that tidbit to yourself.”
Despite the backlash, Dafna and her date are reportedly set to go on a second date. In a follow-up video, Dafna disclosed that she, too, is “broke” and that she will not complain about money when she goes out on dates or to restaurants with friends. “I’m gonna enjoy myself and deal with it later,” she said.
