In the run-up to Valentine’s Day, dating app TrueView surveyed over 1,000 of its users to find out the best, and worst, drinks you can order on a date.

As it turns out, the UK’s daters are rather picky when it comes to ordering at the bar.

The survey found that 14% of people would judge their date based on what they ordered, while an astonishing 45% said they would be put off by their drink of choice straight away, reports the Manchester Evening News.

It turns out men are more picky than women in this respect. More than 70% of guys said they would judge their date harshly if they ordered a drink that didn’t meet their no-doubt discerning tastes, compared to just 30% of women.

Of course, quantity matters as much as quality. Nearly a quarter of daters (22.4%) said they believed you should never order more than five drinks on a first date.

But on the other end of the spectrum, 12% of those asked said they would judge a person who only drank soft drinks.

We’ve ranked the best and worst drinks genres to go for when you’re trying to spark romance.

Keep scrolling to see which of these drinks you should avoid on a first date.
