With Valentine’s Day just around the corner and Brits firming up their dating plans for the evening, many will need to brush up on their dating etiquette as new research out today reveals the top cinema date “turn-offs” for Brit’s.

The research commissioned by ODEON shows that a third of people have been put off their date if they have gone on their phone whilst watching a film whilst 30 per cent say eating too loudly was a turn off. Shockingly 25 per cent say they have had the other person fall asleep on them which has put them off going on a second date.

When it comes to dating etiquette, over half of people (53 per cent) say they are unsure of what is appropriate in the cinema. 60 per cent feel confused on whether it is acceptable to kiss during a film and the big question of who will pay makes 53 per cent of people feel awkward when it comes to splitting the cost of the tickets, food and beverages. Nearly half also feel confused about which genre of film is best to set the scene for a cinema date.

Aston spoke to Lara Asprey, dating and relationship expert, social commentator, author and reality TV star to discuss Brit’s top turn-offs on a cinema date.
