Dating can be rough.
While most single folk dream of those idyllic moments when two star-crossed strangers — destined halves of a whole — lock eyes and forever more spend eternity in a committed, supportive, positive relationship…rarely do those sorts of fantasies play out IRL.
It’s like the song says…”love is a battlefield.”
Recently, one redditor shared a dating moment he witnessed that played out less like a rom-com and more like an action movie.
An epic, heart-pounding, humanity-is-finally-gonna-be-alright style action movie.

We’re talking sleazeball-harrassing-a-lady-in-a-bad-way level date.
Just as the narrator was about to get up and say something to the creep, a surprise hero stepped up to the plate.
That hero was an off duty cop.
How he handled the situation will absolutely restore your faith in humanity…
