Sometimes you need to phone a friend to get through the awkward moments of a first date.
But you probably shouldn’t get caught while doing it.
On Tuesday night’s season finale of First Dates, 23-year-old business owner Zoe and 25-year-old Navy tactician Matt started their date off without a hitch.
After a batch of mojitos and an entree of oysters (that Zoe hated), the awkward silence set in.
Zoe slipped off to the bathroom for a quick strategy meeting.
But she was abruptly interrupted and broke into ungainly laughter as Matt entered the bathroom.
“So that wasn’t awkward…”
Matt did his best to battle through the sticky situation: “
One toilet break and a “hand washing” conversation later, Matt knew he was well out of his comfort zone.
Zoe agreed to a second date, a proposal Matt gracefully declined.
Bianca, a 21-year-old university student from New South Wales and self-proclaimed virgin, had a point to prove as she entered the First Dates restaurant.
But as her date with “Greek God” Melbourne property developer Christian came to an end, Bianca seemingly forgot the memo.
And by Awkward Question Time her intentions only became stronger.
Bianca said she “absolutely” wanted a second date with Christian, while he was a little more hesitant, saying it would be difficult seeing they live in two different states.
But that wouldn’t stop Bianca.
Christian’s big gulp and blank stare said it all.
He did, however, change his mind and accept a second date, sealing it with a kiss.
