Beards, latex and declined cards: Twitter had a lot to say about last night's First Dates

Hopeful singletons were being paired up on Channel 4 last night, and we were on social media picking up chat up lines and standing up for a man in a turtle-neck logo

Channel 4 was playing matchmaker last night, when First Dates returned to our screens. Hopeful singletons were paired up to share the excitement, anticipation and excruciating awkwardness of a first date - and we were there every step of the way.


We even managed to pick up some chat up lines...

While these Tweeters learned some valuable dating lessons

So, to recap, you won't impress this lot by talking about money and kids, or er, eating cutlery with the wrong hands...

Or by criticising their first date outfit. Twitter just won't stand for that sort of behaviour.

One Tweeter didn't have many complaints about this date...

But it left the rest of the Twittersphere feeling rather uncomfortable:

Was love in the air? Maybe. Twitter did have a little crush on a certain bearded gentleman...

Though a lot of you seemed to have eyes for one person, and one person only: this waitress.

You can even follow her on Twitter if you fancy...

When all was said and done, the bill settled and numbers exchanged, viewers were just pretty pleased that the dating show is back on our screens. It seems, while the show's stars might be having a little trouble settling down, its fans are ready to say 'I do'.


First Dates continues on Wednesdays at 10:00pm on Channel 4
