In the age of Tinder, meeting up with a blind date has become the norm. But it’s an endeavour fraught with risk. Your mystery date could look nothing like their picture, have bad breath or have an obsession with their mother. But a hilarious social media trend will make you laugh at how awkward online dating is.

Tweeters have been discussing their terrible dating histories, as well as their nightmare scenarios, under the hashtag #WorstDateIn5Words – because, although we love hearing your tales of love life disasters, we much prefer it in extremely brief summarised form.

Even as social media users reveal the most off-putting thing that could happen on a date, and the mental images are hilarious, the trend simply proves yet again how much of a minefield the dating scene can be. Deal-breakers vary from person to person, but whether you're single, in a relationship or adrift in the sea known as 'it's complicated,' we think you'll relate to some of these dating snafus. Try using these on a bad date and you'll find out what we're talking about.
