Pirinase: What's it like to date with hay fever

Anyone who has hay fever will know all too well that the struggle is real right up until September.

While most people look forward to lunches on the grass, drinks in beautiful pub gardens and picnics on Hampstead Heath, those of us without our antihistamines will be spluttering and streaming miserably in a corner.

And we've all got our stories - whether those involve streaming tears down our faces during a country walk or sneezing at the worst possible moment, we're not alone.

Things only get worse when it comes to dating. Nerve-racking at the best of times, dating becomes a real challenge when you're in the middle of a hay fever meltdown.

Thankfully, these mortifyingly awkward hay fever moments make hilarious anecdotes. So if you want to be comforted by other people's misfortune (and let's be honest, who doesn't?) Watch the video above for some of the most embarassing hay fever dating disasters.

While spring brings warmer weather it also marks the start of the hay fever season.

A single dose of Pirinase Hayfever Relief For Adults 0.05% Nasal Spray in each nostril once a day could help relieve sneezing, a runny nose, nasal congestion, and itchy and watery eyes.
