Have you ever gone on a date with someone you met on social media? How was it? Did you enjoy it, or it turned out worse than you expected?

She told TUKO.co.ke:

Travelling to Kisii
Wambui woke up early on Saturday, September 18, took a matatu to town, boarded a bus to Kisii town to meet her prince charming.
That day, Ogeto was off, and he picked her at the bus station and headed to his house.
Wambui is shocked
During their calls, the 29-year-old said that Ogeto used to video call from a cosy room, with a bed, toilet and bathroom inside, but she was shocked to be taken to a single-roomed mabati house.
"I also fainted! At first, I thought he was visiting his grandparents to introduce me. But was shocked when he removed the key and opened the door. A five-seater seat, a 32-inch TV, a 6kgs gas cylinder, a matress on the floor were the only things inside the tiny room."
Night came, and Wambui said she was shocked again to learn that there was no toilet inside the house. Ogeto shared one, which also serves as a bathroom.
After two days, Wambui couldn't stay any no longer and asked to leave, hoping her prince charming would refund the fare she used to travel as he had promised but that didn't happen.
"That Monday, he gave me KSh 700 and left for work. I was so mad and planned to sell the TV set and gas cylinder to recover the money I had used. After he left for work, I ransacked the house and luckily, I found KSh 5,200 under the mattress."
Wambui said she left the house immediately to board a bus to Nairobi without even taking a shower.

The bubbly lady told TUKO.co.ke that she doesn't regret her actions, advising women never to settle for less.
In her words:
"If he sends you less money than you expected, please eat it and block him everywhere. hakuna mahali atakupeleka."
Lady shares first message she sent to man that made him fall in love
Legit.ng previously reported that a young lady with the Twitter handle @TrueCoaster said she got a man on the social media platform to fall in love with her after she admired him and sent a DM that captured his heart.
In a thread of photos sighted by Legit.ng on the lady's page, she added that the first message was sent a year ago.
In the first DM, she 'confessed' that she had spent an embarrassingly long time going through the gentleman's photographs and was super impressed.
