Have you ever been on an awkward date? Or a date that was so bad it was funny?

No matter how bad your dates may seem, you are not alone. Have a read through some of our disastrous dates. You will 100% feel better about your bad dates.

Capturing your personality on a date is very important, especially in the early stages of a relationship. We have found that typical date ideas, like movies or dinner, make it harder to reflect who you are. Dinner can be too much pressure having to talk the whole way through, and in the movies, you do not speak at all. We have pulled together some date ideas for gamers and geeks to represent better who you are.

“Smug beggars” as you eyeball your phone holding your glass of tipple, cat on your lap and chowing down on 50% of a dine-in for 2, the other half being good for the next night as there’s no way you can eat it all on your lonesome (silver linings hey?).

When you invest time, effort, and money into the wrong relationship you run the risk of missing out on the person you’re meant to be with. For the majority of people out there the regrets are not about the people they met but didn’t connect with, rather it's about the time they spent investing themselves in toxic partners.

When it comes to dating, we are facing an incredibly challenging new world. Regardless of the quarantine restrictions being lifted the world will never be the same again, sure we will create a new normal, but it will not ever be the old-normal.

For both introverts and extrovert this unprecedented series of events has left us questioning everything. If you’re not equipped to take a step back and look at your relationship untainted by the ‘great toilet set debate of Monday’ and Thursday’s ‘no, you were meant to do the dishes meltdown’ it can be tricky to figure out if you and your partner are thriving or merely surviving.

Music may be the food of love but let’s admit it – food is the ultimate way to any guy or girl’s heart.

With the world temporarily unrecognizable to that of contemporary life we know, our dating behaviours are so also going to shift with those changes, perhaps for the better. Here are our tips for making the most of non-tangible dating and using it to your advantage.

We do things, say things or even become different people and these changes can lead to loving couples divorcing and well-matched partners breaking up.

Create a new look, decide to alter the patterns that have not brought you joy and especially when it comes to finding love, look at what things to cut out of your life so that new things can come to fruition.

While pick up artists tout the benefits of having a silver tongue in racking up notches on their bedposts it has an important role to play for those of us looking for a real human connection and the hope of a life with someone special.

The real question is how you play hard to get without crossing the line into disinterested – or worse yet, off-limits. There is nothing more frustrating that reconnecting with an old crush to hear they were crazy about you too, but you thought they “out of your league”.

Whether it’s the pressure to always appear perfect, the strain of often living apart for long periods of time, or the ongoing distraction of being pursued by those who cannot separate the persona from the person, time and time again we see relationships in the spotlight crumble to dust.

If trashy, but addictive, reality TV has taught us anything over the last few years it is that even the closest couples and best of friends can lose their minds when travelling together. The same can also be true of partners who find themselves separated for the first time.

Human beings can be fickle, shallow animals. With the incessant airbrushed ads that envisage the unreachable gold standards of so-called naked perfection to the fairly vapid model on which a well known and loved dating application is based - a simple glance at a person’s photo being enough to decide whether to give the right swipe of approval or the dreaded left swipe that is like a sweeping scythe of romantic death, mowing down all those potentials each with a unique complex of hopes, personality and experience to offer aside from their outward appearance.
