Dating etiquette is an absolute minefield of pressure, stress and confusion.

Even before you've met up with the potential love of your life, you have to wade yourself through the 'getting ready' scenario. Do I look too try-hard? Do I look too casual? Do I look like I'm TERRIFIED?!

And then once you're there, face to face, you have to put actual speech into practice too.

WHY, after years of being able to grasp the English language, does all understanding of words seem to just fade away?

We bet that poor old Daniel from Peterborough is asking himself the same question after trying (and failing - sorry Daniel!) to pay his date a compliment on hit dating show First Dates:

Ohhh Daniel! 

Unfortunately for the singleton, his attempts didn't succeed; despite his best efforts he ended up being friend-zoned by the blonde beauty.

Viewers of the show took to Twitter to discuss Daniel's compliment attempt:

The next episode of First Dates will air tonight on Channel 4 at 10pm.
