Have You Always Wondered Why First Dates Get Awkward? Here’s Why!

First Dates. The most terrifying of all firsts, presumably. Those bouts of nervousness, anxiety, and uncertainty we feel when going out with someone we’re trying to impress, more so if it’s a blind date, we all have been there!

This animated short film by Josiah Haworth and Joon Soo Song, attempts to explain why we feel how we feel.

Titled “Brain Divided”, this film captures the chaos happening in a guy’s mind when he sees the beautiful woman he’s on a blind date with.

While at the restaurant, he finds that his brain goes into overdrive. The logical left side and the emotional, impulsive right side of his brain begin to battle for control in this situation, making him do and say the craziest things. Explains the awkwardness, right?

We bet you’ll love the ending!
