You’ll either love or hate #FirstDateSelfies, the new Instagram trend

Fact: There is no sight on God’s green Earth more repulsive than a couple that is deeply in love. (And I say this as someone who is one-half of said type of couple.) If you agree with the above statement, then boy, are you gonna love #FirstDateSelfies, the latest social media trend where couples document their very first dates on Instagram.

That’s right: It’s an Instagram hashtag of couples’ first dates. Excuse me while I gently puke into my cupped hands.

Anyway, here are some photos of this thing I hate:

Awwwwwww they’re so young! They’re like little human-sized Fisher Price people. Remember your first love? You don’t know about alimony, or fighting over who gets the cat when you break up, or having sex through a hole in your ratty sweatpants because you’re too tired to take them off. You’re just young and beautiful and innocent. I just want to grab them, pinch their cheeks, and stick Werther’s caramels in their hands.

sniffle… what? No, I’m not crying. It’s just… allergies. I know it’s December, but I have really bad allergies. Anyway. Anyone wanna eat a pint of ice cream and watch Love Actually or something?
