I’m sorry to tell you, ladies of Nottingham, but the dreaded Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us like a lion on its prey. It’s definitely going to happen, our hearts will be more than likely ripped out and the sooner we’re put out of our misery, the better.

Teddy bears holding hearts, plastic red roses, and gushing romantic cards make many of us realise that we’re potentially going to die alone. So there’s only one thing to do: panic, drink a lot of wine, and ask a friend of a friend of a friend on a first date.

The social pressure of trying to act like you’re a sane human being and don’t cry into a tub of ice cream while dreaming about Justin Bieber’s peroxide blond hair every night is almost unbearable.

Trying to second guess what the seemingly normal guy sat across the table wants to know about you is enough to get the palms sweating and the dress you only bought yesterday feeling way too tight.

BUT GUESS WHAT, GIRLS? We did the leg work for you and asked the guys of Nottingham what questions they would ask a girl if they could ask anything. Brace yourselves.
