The D.C. man who lined up six dates in one night said he’s sorry—sort of.
“It was a mistake,” said the man going by the name of “Justin.”
On Monday, Justin basically lined up a round of speed-dating at Truxton Inn. The women arrived one by one and were on to his game. They ended up joining forces and getting drinks together at a bar across the street.
The whole situation unfolded live on Twitter in an epic string of updates from Lisette Pylant—date #1.

When she confronted him that night, he responded “Well, I’m a project manager, I manage my time efficiently.”
"...A project manager, I manage my time efficiently." And I say there's no way to know someone in 40 mins of you have 5 dates lined up— Lisette Pylant (@LisettePylant) August 8, 2017
But according to Justin, the women also got the wrong impression.
“Never said ‘Let’s go on a date.’ I always say ‘Let’s meet for drinks.’ If I take you on a date you will know it’s a date. There will be flowers and dinner and some other cool things involved,” Justin said in an interview with Inside Edition.
He prefers to call these kind of meet-ups “preliminary conversations.”
Still, Justin felt a little bad for how the whole situation went down.
“I’m not going to deny who I am and I’m not going to deny that I wanna meet a bunch of people, but I approached this wrong and I am sorry for that,” he added.
He finally realized he wasn't winning and just walked out. #6 and her mom and aunt are now our new best friends— Lisette Pylant (@LisettePylant) August 8, 2017
And he added that he is in fact still in the dating game.
“I’m looking for love.”
Maybe just try one "preliminary conversation" at a time, Justin!
