Never before has dating been such a minefield.
But – thanks to Tinder, First Dates, and that good ol' millennial lifestyle that prevents us from settling down until we're 95 – never before have we been so absolutely MAD for it.
Of course, not all dates can lead to a lifelong romance. But let's face it; it's the calamities that make for wonderful stories. So, we want to collect some of the best that our readers have to offer.
We'll be putting our favourite 10 to a public vote later in the week, so get scribbling if you fancy a chance to win a weekend away for two with dinner in Dunboyne Castle and Spa – one of Ireland's swankiest hotels, and one we've raved about before.
This is a quick-fire competition – submissions close at noon on Friday, when we'll post the shortlisted entries, then voting will run until Wednesday of next week when the winner will be announced.
