First dates are usually a great opportunity to figure things out about another person. You can see whether views align and, if they don't, whether you want to look past that.
For one couple though, it seems the circle of life got a little bit too much and it was all filmed for us to watch on Channel 4's First Dates.
On the Christmas special of the show, we were introduced to electrician Sam who was on a date with recruitment consultant Macy.
Despite getting on well at first, things took a turn when it came to the carnivorous habits of snakes - namely that they eat things that many people consider to be friends, not food.
Taking control of the conversation, Sam told Macy: "I've got a very good fact. A fella I used to work with, he's right into reptiles and stuff like that. He's got a snake that's about this fat..."
Gesturing just how large the serpent was with his hands, he went on: "It must be about ten foot long. Because it's a snake it has to eat other animals."
Seeming not to enjoy the subject her match had landed on, Macy butted in and said: "We should not be discussing this right now," adding: "Little baby mice being thrown in the tank."
But Sam wasn't for stopping and revealed: "Bigger than a mouse..."
Getting Macy's attention at this stage, she asked: "A rat?" Sam replied: "Bigger than a rat," landing on the correct answer, Macy said: "A bunny?"
Confirming she had in fact hit the nail on the head, Sam said: "I'll say nowt... don't you find that cool?" Didn't you look at her reaction, Sam?
Explaining what we could already see from Macy's expression, she said: "No, I do not. A baby bunny being swallowed whole by a snake."
Despite everything eventually being fine between the pair, they didn't choose to continue their relationship in a romantic way.
Commenting on their matching on Twitter, one person wrote: "Loving this Christmas First Dates already he’s the perfect match for Macy."
Sam himself responded, saying: "Lovely girl but from someone that was sat at the table… he wasn’t."
