#FirstDateSelfies are an actual trend on Instagram

Would you take one?

INSTAGRAM USERS ARE taking selfies on their first dates, and posting them under the hashtag #firstdateselfie.

The hashtag first appeared in 2013, but really took off in December last year.

Some users use the hashtag to reminisce about their first dates with their long-term partners. But many are actual current photos from first dates as they happen.

Considering how difficult first dates are anyway, all these people are looking pretty great.
