A casanova who organised dates with six women on the same night and became the subject of a viral Twitter thread has defended his actions. Justin Schweiger found himself at the centre of a Twitter storm after one of his dates revealed to the world he had booked six consecutive dates at a bar in Washington DC. His plan backfired when his date number one, Lisette Pylant, livetweeted the evening and explained to the other women they were all on dates with the same guy. She explained: We meet up at a bar my friend works at. Said friend proceeds to text me telling me this guy sucks and I should run— Lisette Pylant (@LisettePylant) August 7, 2017 So 45 mins in his next date shows up because he double books himslef and he decides he's going to friendzone me to get out of the situation— Lisette Pylant (@LisettePylant) August 7, 2017 She then decided to 'steal' his dates: We're now all hanging out at another bar together pic.twitter.com/jasDbaDQCL— Lisette Pylant (@LisettePylant) August 8, 2017 In an interview with Inside Edition, Mr Schweiger said he never meant to be disrespectful to the women, but claims he never actually told them it was a date. “I do stack my dates. I do typically book them at the same place. I’m very time-oriented, efficiency-oriented,” he explained. “I know it’s kind of taken that realm [of him being disrespectful]. I’m sorry this happened.” He added: “But I’ve been very upfront with all of them. I never said, ‘let’s go on a date’. I always said, ‘Let’s meet for drinks’. “If I take you on a date, you will know it’s a date. There will be flowers and some dinner and some other cool things involved.” Since the date night fiasco, the six women have become friends, while the lothario insists: “I’m just looking for love.” Back at the scene of the crime!
