We have immersed ourselves in this “snap or it didn’t happen” culture. This trend has been further exacerbated by apps such as Instagram and Snapchat which revolve around photo sharing. Some people thrive on ascertaining how other people live their lives, unaware and uncaring whether or not they are delving a little too deep.

Here are five things that the lads hate hearing on those first dates: Anything at all related to […]
