This Bar Has Your Back If Your Tinder Date Turns Bad

"Your safety and happiness is our highest priority."

When a blind or online date goes wrong, you need to have a fall back plan.

Thankfully, this bar in England has got its female customers' backs.

Staff at The Brickyard in St. Albans have posted a sign in the women's restrooms that explains exactly how they can get out of the tricky situation, Metro newspaper reports.

"Tinder date gone wrong?" it asks. "Doesn't look like his picture, or just plain weird?" It then suggests going to the bar and asking for Rachelle or Jennifer "and we'll get you out of it and/or get you a taxi."

Taylor White posted a picture of the sign to Facebook on Friday. "Just seen this in the St.Albans toilets. Well done Brickyard," she wrote. 

The Women's Equality Party St Albans called the initiative an "excellent idea", as the group voiced its approval and shared the post on its Facebook page. The image went viral after it was posted soon after to the picture sharing service Imgur.

The sign says the "safety and happiness" of clients is the bar's "highest priority" and that anyone who is being made to feel uncomfortable should speak up and staff will help resolve the situation.

"The Brickyard is safe and fun. We want you to enjoy your time here. Talk to us and we'll sort it out," it adds. 

Most commenters have reacted positively to the sign, but some have suggested that the same help should also be available for male customers.

The Huffington Post has reached out for comment.
