Online dating can be scary— always keep receipts. Saturday Night Live star Michael Che met a woman on dating app Raya and was later accused by her of being a terrible dater. According to PageSixthe comedian met Leah McSweeney, owner of streetwear brand Married To The Mob, last year. She blasted him for being "arrogant" and "disrespectful" on her podcast, Improper Etiquette, but he begs to differ.

Che shared their text message exchange with PageSix and from the looks of it, he wasn't arrogant or rude at all. From the texts, it looks like they just didn't have a spark and Che didn't want to meet in person. Even when he ghosted, McSweeney would text him over the course of months. 

“U hate me cus I’m white. Our conversations r everything to me btw. We have a lot of friends in common and if anyone of them saw this I would b so ashamed," she said. “Do u ever want to meet up? Or r we just gonna text each other randomly until eternity? Well I did think it was odd u kept saying ur fat." Finally, he tells her that he's just not that into her. “I [don’t] wanna meet up. You text really strange declarations looking for a reaction, and I don’t wanna know what’s the real life equivalent of that.” Burn.

Some blasted McSweeney for getting mad just because a guy rejected her. She dismisses this idea to Jezebel. "The way he went about it is crazy. You can say, ‘I’m not interested.’ Why are you even texting me back then? Why did you even give me your phone number? You told me to hit you up. I didn’t give you my phone number.”

Some may remember McSweeney for her appearance on Millionaire Matchmaker in 2010. We'll leave it there.
