We've all been there, haven't we: Your time swiping right leads to perhaps one of the worst dates your life? But don't worry, Emily Hampshire's right there with you. The Schitt's Creek star just sat down to open up about a disaster date she once went on years ago - all thanks to Tinder. And we'd be lying if we said we weren't slightly amused.

It all started a few years back, when the newly divorced actress decided to try her luck online. Sure enough, after swiping away, she finally hit the jackpot - or so she thought. "I see this guy... And he looks clean and, like, employable and not a serial killer," she hilariously recalled. "So, like all the boxes: check, check, check." Well, let's just say things didn't quite go as planned after agreeing to meet up at a local bar.

After arriving at their date venue, the actress opted for a seat right next to her blind date, Ari, despite there being "other [seating] options." But her awkward seating choice was about to be the least of her worries. After her mystery man proceeded to compliment her -"something nice about the way I looked," - things took a sudden turn for the worst.

"I proceeded to cry," Hampshire revealed. Like really cry. So much so, that "he laughed when snot blew out of my nose and hugged me," the actress continued. "When he hugged me [with] his very clean white shirt, I basically left, like, an imprint of the joker face on his white shirt." Yikes.

Sure enough, one hefty dry cleaning bill and sinus infection later (Seriously. Emily got a sinus infection from crying so hard), the two are actually better than ever. In fact, "To this day, this is years later, we laugh about the snot bubble. My first ever Tinder date, Ari, is still my dear friend," Hampshire revealed of her worst date.

While we've got a feeling Miss Hampshire won't be going on any blind dates anytime soon, we're glad to see she's able to laugh at the sticky situation looking back. And we're wishing nothing but the best for the single lady.

Stay tuned.
