The Telegraph:–A casanova who organised dates with six women on the same night and became the subject of a viral Twitter thread has defended his actions.
Justin Schweiger found himself at the centre of a Twitter storm after one of his dates revealed to the world he had booked six consecutive dates at a bar in Washington DC.
His plan backfired when his date number one, Lisette Pylant, livetweeted the evening and explained to the other women they were all on dates with the same guy.
In an interview with Inside Edition, Mr Schweiger said he never meant to be disrespectful to the women, but claims he never actually told them it was a date.
“I do stack my dates. I do typically book them at the same place. I’m very time-oriented, efficiency-oriented,” he explained.
“I know it’s kind of taken that realm [of him being disrespectful]. I’m sorry this happened.”
He added: “But I’ve been very upfront with all of them. I never said, ‘let’s go on a date’. I always said, ‘Let’s meet for drinks’.
“If I take you on a date, you will know it’s a date. There will be flowers and some dinner and some other cool things involved.”
