In a story straight out of an early 2000s romantic comedy, a woman has ended up in hospital with her Tinder date after suffering a severe allergic reaction to peanuts. 

Then she and her date both shared it all on TikTok because... zillenials, I guess. 

Australian woman Samara Hnaien, 22, and 23-year-old Charles Harris told Buzzfeed they had both been messaging on Tinder before deciding to meet up at Harris' house. While bars and restaurants are shut in Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic, Australian citizens have not been instructed to stay in isolation as Kiwis have.

"As everything is shut, the date was just Samara coming over to my house to hang out," Harris told BuzzFeed. "The date was going very well, so we ended up kissing..."

But during the smooch, Hnaien says she began to feel a strange tingling in her face and lips. 

It turned out Harris had eaten a peanut butter sandwich hours before the date, triggering Hnaien's sensitive allergy. 

When Hnaien asked Harris if he'd eaten peanuts and he confirmed he had, she instructed him to inject her EpiPen in her thigh.

Harris then called an ambulance and they travelled to Accident and Emergency together. 

"He handled the situation as best as he could've. I was actually really impressed," Hnaien said. "He was really caring and genuine and made me feel at ease and kept reassuring me to not feel embarrassed or anything like that because I was just mortified and felt so bad for him.

"It's a pretty confronting experience stabbing someone with an EpiPen especially when you first meet them haha."

The pair both shared their respective experiences on TikTok and promised they will post a follow-up for fans desperate to know the next step.

"If this blows up I'll actually take her on a date," Harris captioned his video.
