A few days ago, Riyadh K posted an ambiguous tweet to his followers about being "heartbroken" and needing "gin and Netflix". Most of his fanbase charged to support their YouTube fave, but still had no clear idea what was bothering Riyadh until he updated them in a vlog posted three days later. In it, he reveals that he recently got "dumped".

After meeting a man on a dating app that Riyadh really wanted to "be around" and "look after", the couple obsessively spent every day together for weeks before their romance cooled down. After three and a half months of distance and feeling like their was a "weird barrier" up between the two, Riyadh confronted the mystery man on a dinner date. Unfortunately, he didn't get the answer he wanted to hear - "I just don't feel with you the way I felt with my ex... I'm not attracted to you sexually anymore".

Like any sane person, Riyadh misinterpreted this message as saying he was "ugly", but after days of feeling low and "sh*tty", he feels like he's come out the other side and instead is rather thankful. Reflecting on the evening and the manner in which he was "dumped", Riyadh was so glad that his mystery man was honest and didn't "ghost" dump him because then he would have been even more heartbroken. And so, in the final words of Mr K; "I'm back on the market!".
