• Christiana and Matty from The Undateables

The Undateables: A Guide To Dating (VIDEO)

In the short film The Undateables: A Guide To Dating, some familiar faces from the Channel 4 series return to share what they've learned about successful dating...

1. BREAK THE ICE WITH A JOKE

Shaine says that the best way to get your date off to a good start is to tell a joke - just so long as it's a good one. 

“My top tip from being on The Undateables… try and make them laugh. Always tell a joke as long as it’s good sense of humour and it makes her erupt with a big smile or laugh or giggles.”


2. MAKE SURE YOU'RE LOOKING - AND SMELLING - TIP TOP

“Usually for a date I’ll smell good. I get deodorant out…literally all over," says The Undateables' Richard. 

Christina says that a lady should always keep her nails nice, but that her date, when admiring her form, should ensure he keeps his gaze north of her chin. "Not acting like a pervert... not looking at these knockers!" she says.


3. USE CHAT-UP LINES WITH CAUTION

When meeting someone for the first time, you can never quite be sure how a chat-up line will land, so proceed with caution. Michael has a better idea: "Just be yourself - some people don’t like chat up lines and I don’t blame them, they think it’s too cheesy."

Matty, on the other hand, is pretty sure he's a first class deliverer of chat-up lines, and Christina - who he is now dating - clearly agrees. "I may not be Fred Flinstone but I can sure make your bed rock," was his winning line.


4. IF YOU GET A SECOND DATE, A SMALL GIFT CAN WORK MAGIC

"You might take flowers to give to them on the second date," says Tim. "And if they don’t like flowers…take a keyring or something small. Keep it quite small and simple."
