"How did you NOT notice that your NECK is 5 shades DARKER than the makeup you put on your FACE..??", "the more I drink the cuter he gets," "So your ex is a jerk, I get it! Can we go to my place now?" and "hope she likes football or is at least willing to learn" are just some of the things Twitter users say they think after a first date.

The term "#nowplaying" has moved down one place and is now trending at number two.

"#ThankYouJesus" is a new entry on Wednesday's charts, measuring up at number three as people talk about the many things they are thankful to Jesus for.

The name of Korean pop group Super Junior's fourth studio album and lead single, "Bonamana" has moved down the charts one place to number five.

The meme "#aslongasyou" is in sixth place, taking over from Canadian singer and Twitter favorite Justin Bieber who has lost one point overnight and is now trending at number seven.
