This man has sparked quite a discussion online after it was revealed he asked the woman he'd been on 3 dates with to refund him the money he spent.

He had paid for drinks and food, but since it didn't work out well in the end - he asked her to chip in to help cover the costs.

"Hi Alex, hope you’re doing well. Would you mind letting me know what your *account details are*?" his message to her began.

“The reason I ask is since you and I won’t be seeing each other anymore, it’s only fair to ask for equal payment from you for the dates we went on."

"I believe it was 3 separate times we went out bars/restaurants where I paid for us both each time."

“I’d say $60  is more than fair for your food and drinks that I got during those dates. I view you as a fair girl, I hope you’ll consider reimbursing me. Thanks!”

His text has split opinion - what do you think? Was it a fair request, or a bit cheeky?
