What NOT to Ask on a First Date

Whether we’re politically minded or not, we have all heard of the most divisive political question of this generation – to remain or leave the EU.

Channel 4’s First Dates got awkward when a young couple’s conversation lead them to a disagreement on Brexit.

Lettie, 23, denied trying to find someone with the same political views when Fred, 26, asked after picking up on her political ambition before Brexit came up.


Not long after, Lettie (leaver) realised she was on a date with a remainer.

Lettie did see Fred a second time, but it wasn’t to be.

So if you’re trying to avoid awkward silences on your first date, steer clear of Brexit – first dates are hard enough without it.
