We've all been there, once, twice or maybe twenty times. It's a total bummer when it happens because we tend to build up the hype of our potential love interest but when it comes crashing down, it often feels like a total waste of time.

So let's have a laugh together and relate to the 48 thoughts we've all had during the slow meltdown of bad first date.
