‘Fresh’ movie ending explained?

Though the movie has a clear ending of two survivors who escaped the captivity of a cannibalistic killer. But the ending can be interpreted in several ways. One usual explanation of the ending is the negative impact of online dating. How going out with a stranger can be fatal is the clear message the creators gave out.

On the other hand, the ending explains how the looks and behavior of an individual can be indecisive. An elaborated version of ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’.
