  • Couples on first dates are taking selfies and uploading them to social media
  • The hashtag #firstdateselfie is being used to document the snaps
  • The photos can be a reminder of a sweet beginning or an awkward first and only date

(CNN) -- "What do you do for a living?

"What's your favorite movie?"

"Do you have any siblings?"

"Can we take a selfie?"

Proving yet again that there is a selfie for any occasion (however untoward), enter the #FirstDateSelfie, a movement on social media for Generation "Let's Document Everything," including those sometimes sweet but more likely awkward first dates.

While some might see it as a little much, for daters who go in for the couples selfie it can end up being a sweet memento, especially if the relationship blossoms. Not many people can say they have a picture of their first date.


For others, it's a tell-tale sign of this wacky world we live in now, where details we once saved for the post-date download amongst friends are now uploaded for public consumption.

#firstdateselfie 😂😂😂😂....
