First dates – occasionally fantastic, generally verging on apocalyptic…

We’ve all been there. Here are 11 experiences you may recognise if you’ve ever gone on a first date, be it Tinder or otherwise, in Manchester’s fair city…

1. The ‘Where To?’ debate

Somewhere that’s cool and chill, but not too noisy? Eek.

2. The backup friend plan

“Keep an eye on your phone AT ALL TIMES, I may need an escape route!”

3. The ‘who buys the first round?’ tug of war

“I’ll get the next.” 

“Suuuure…”

4. Awkward small talk at the bar while you wait for the barman to notice you

No point getting into the full conversation now, really, is there?

5. Whipping out your phone when they go to the loo

You gotta update your mates, after all. 

‘All good!’ vs ‘HALP!!!!’

6. Doing a quick scan of the bar you’re in, to double-check that you don’t know anyone there

Manchester is too small, amirite?

7. The ‘Second Destination’ discussion

Final orders…

“Should we get one last drink somewhere else?”

8. Somehow accidentally referencing an ex and immediately regretting it

This is why you can’t have nice things.

9. Your date mentioning something that they could only have learnt about you from Facebook stalking

Ewps.

10. En route to Second Destination, praying that you don’t bump into someone who you’d have to introduce them to

“This is, eh, my friend….” FUCK, WHAT’S HIS NAME AGAIN?!

Eek

11. Getting turfed out of Second Destination around 3am, and then the age old question..

“So, where to?”
