Awkward silences. Forgotten names. Paying faux pas. Dates can be a minefield to manoeuvre through, even if you’re not actually on one.
Just being an innocent bystander is bad enough, especially when you can’t intervene to change the subject and make the embarrassment end.
So tell us: what’s the most uncomfortable date you’ve ever witnessed?
We want to hear about the teeth-clenchingly cringe dates you’ve overheard. Share the stories of swiping woes and first-date fuck-ups that you’ve witnessed with us anonymously below – the best/worst will appear in Time Out magazine.
