In what must have been the most awkward date from hell, a Twitter user by the name of Fabuticaba shared that the 28-year-old man she was on the date with thought women's periods lasted a month.
Why he relayed this piece of horribly misguided information with his date is anyone's guess. Fabuticaba shared the news in a tweet that has since gone viral and, judging by the responses of other women, we're beginning to wonder how some of these men manage to leave the house everyday without hurting themselves.
It all started with this tweet.
