We all get that flicker and glimmer of hope that holy moly I hope this is someone I actually hit it off with and I hope that they feel the same way.

Because we're so on edge and the very nature of meeting someone for the first time to potentially pursue as a romantic interest, first dates could very easily go into the territory of the cringe-inducing.

Naturally, you'll want to find a way to stop that from happening and while I'm no love guru, I can tell you that avoiding what these guys did is probably a good idea. The question was first brought up on Twitter.

And people who were willing to share their own embarrassing experiences. Sometimes the cringe is a two-way street.

So if you're got a first date coming up that you're feeling anxious about you can probably console yourself with the fact that it definitely won't be as awkward/terrible as these were.
