TikTok star Sofia Franklyn has recently shared that the first thing she demands on a first date is a man’s bank account information. The controversial move has divided opinions and started discussions on social media. Find out what her motive is and how people reacted!
The Controversial First Date Move
Sofia Franklyn surprised social media users after sharing what she does on first dates to decide if she should go on a second date. The first thing that comes to people’s minds is probably seeing how they interact with the waiter or who pays the bill. Many scenarios could reveal potential red flags, but the TikTok star has a bit of a different vision.
In a recent episode of her podcast, she was having an interview with Leo Skepi. During their talk, she shared that she had actually asked the last three guys she dated for their bank account info on the first date. Her guest asked what her intention was, thinking there might be a less obvious motivation. However, Franklyn stood behind her decision and said she only dated wealthy guys with money.
Leo thought the move was ‘valid’ because she was ‘getting straight to the point.’ Sofia explained that since she had a job and was very successful, she had the right to expect her date to be on the same level as her. Otherwise, it would be just a waste of time for her. She described her dating technique as ‘just being efficient.’ Of course, this sparked a lot of debates in the comments section.
One viewer wrote, “Some things we shouldn’t say out loud.” Others appreciated the fact that Sofia was being straightforward. Another comment we came across was, “In short ‘I need you to earn more than me because I think I’m wealthy, but I’m not really.’ The irony of wealth is someone with it won’t look for it.” Some people agreed with Franklyn, stating that she deserved to be with someone on the same level as her.
This year, visitors who go to Yosemite National Park and want to witness the park’s rare “firefall” phenomenon should make reservations, because National Park Service works to control crowding. The annual event happens when the Horsetail Fall in Yosemite National Park is backlit by the setting sun, causing it to appear to be on fire and resembling a lava flow cascading down the eastern edge of the famous El Capitan.
What Exactly Is the Horsetail Fall?
Horsetail Fall can glow orange when illuminated by the setting sun. It’s a one-of-a-kind lighting phenomenon that only happens in the evenings with a clear sky, when the waterfall is flowing, and when the sun is at the appropriate angle between the middle and end of February. It’s an event that draws a large number of visitors to a relatively restricted location, which results in traffic congestion, safety concerns, and parking problems, in addition to having an impact on both cultural and natural resources.
A Beautiful Firefall Phenomenon
Travelers who already have a reservation for day use, a reservation at a particular lodging facility, a particular campground, or authorization for commercial use, do not need to make another one to enter Yosemite National Park and see the firefall phenomenon. To view the event, tourists need to park at the Yosemite Falls parking area and walk 1.5 miles to the viewing spot near the El Capitan Picnic Area, according to the NPS.
The good news is that there is also a free shuttle service that will easily take you to Yosemite Village or Curry Village. Yosemite National Park will not require tourists to make reservations during the summer months, even though NPS is putting a lot of effort into reducing the number of visitors during the firefall event.
