Like this, but with a handgun
A 30-year-old San Francisco man has reconfirmed for the world that dating indeed sucks.

The victim went online recently where he met a girl; the two connected so he set up a date for them to finally meet. Wednesday was the big day, presumably: the two were scheduled to meet somewhere in the Outer Mission.

But when the woman showed up, she had two other men were with her -- and they weren't there for a foursome, according to police.

The two men pointed a gun at the unsuspecting bachelor and demanded his wallet. The victim handed it over and the three suspects, including his date, bolted the scene in a black sedan, says Officer Gordon Shyy.

Later that night, officers spotted the suspect vehicle in the Bayview; police attempted to stop the car, but the driver sped off. A pursuit ensued through the neighborhood and ended at Woolsey and University where five people were detained and taken to Ingelside station, Shyy says.

No word on whether the victim has since taken his online profile down.

And why not robbing some random guy in the streets ,instead of someone from internet ,considering that the meeting was public...

Thank goodness my name isn't erta... which could mean Earth... now you see why we brought up nature topics: like nuclear engineering/energy and safety protocols with nuclear storage facilities. Impressive.

Dating is an amazing human need! Socializing indeed. Always be weary of who you go hang out with... On the first date, you should always meet at a public place where lots of people are present, for instance a major Hotel lobbby like the hilton, marriot, etc.. There are lots of cameras and so many people that you'd more than likely not become a victim of such dirty tricks! Good Luck dating and remember use your common sense!

Rae Louise Breaux - Actually I believe it's news because someone reported it to the police and SF Gate got a hold of the story. Not because it was a dude, gal or any other living being. Just sayin....

And why is this news? Cause it's a dude? Terrible shit happens the other way around all the time and it's never news.

Probably cheaper than what the date might've cost him in the city.
