Romance is exciting stuff. The pre-date build-up, the nerves, the anticipation of what he'll be like, privately musing over what shoes to pair with a strapless, off-white wedding dress before you've even met the guy...
Okay maybe that last one is just us. But dating is fun and fun things are worth sharing on social media. Right?
Turns out that treating the big bad internet to tales of your dating life isn't without its risks, as one unlucky tweeter found out when things turned a little sour on the date.
It started off so well; an excited young man shares the news that he has a date planned for the weekend. All lovely stuff.
But then things go a bit sideways, as he ends up running 25 minutes late.
25 minutes is quite a long time to be kept waiting. Not everyone would wait for 25 whole minutes, but his date did, bless him. However from the looks of this SOS tweet, it might have been better if he'd just bailed all together.
If you think things can't get worse, where's your imagination? For this is the internet, and the internet will always find new and unusual ways to punish you.
Somehow, his date found the SOS tweet (pretty nifty detective skills as there was no name mentioned) and had something of his own to add.
Well that escalated quickly.
And everybody watching pretty much reacted the same way...
All there's left to say?
Let that be a lesson to you: NEVER ever share your dating woes online.
