When Craig Moffat set off for his first date in two years, he had high expectations.

Excitedly capturing his three-hour round-trip from Edinburgh to Aberdeen on TikTok, he shared every step with his followers as he travelled to the expensive restaurant he’d booked for the romantic escapade.

Craig, dressed up in waistcoat and tie, splashed out on a first class train ticket as he headed out from his Edinburgh home for the 90 mile journey.

In the TikTok video of his trip, he said was “finally” going on a date after a long two years since his previous one.

‘I can’t wait, I’m so excited,’ he added, posting video of the countryside rolling by from the train window.

It wasn’t to be though sadly for Craig, who arrived 20 minutes early at the restaurant and waited nervously for his date, who never arrived.

“It’s been 35 minutes and she still hasn’t shown up,” he captioned a clip of himself looking downcast.

He was then forced to tuck in alone and he filmed himself having his meal followed by a few drinks.

Craig said he was heartbroken as he returned home after his disappointing evening.

Then he records himself forlornly at the station with the caption: “I guess I’ll just head home…I was really looking forward for tonight.”

His video has had over 4.6million views with over 20,000 comments and 700,000 likes, reports The Mirror..

TikTok users tried to cheer up 21-year-old Craig, who ended up dining alone at the smart restaurant.

His messages including “Maybe it’s not time to get back out there just yet…” and “heartbroken” as fellow TikTok users sympathised with his plight.

One person wrote: “She doesn’t deserve you mate, you’ll find the one.”

And another said: “I know you were excited but you’ve dodged someone that would make you really unhappy in the end. You deserve better.”
