Forget witty conversation. Or poetry. Or buying flowers. The latest first date ice-breaker is a selfie.
But not just any selfie. A #firstdateselfie.
Yes. Welcome to the world of modern dating. Where you meet someone, eat a meal together and then take a first date selfie and upload it to Instagram for the world to see. Pretty sure Jane Austen would be turning in her grave.
Don’t worry if you run short of conversation. Or your date starts talking about their fascination with Hilter’s paintings. Or if your date turns up in Crocs. Just whip out your phone and capture the moment.
Like these people, who are dutifully uploading their #firstdateselfies to Instagram.
