A young woman with a severe allergy has documented her horror after she ended up in hospital after kissing her Tinder date who had eaten a peanut butter sandwich before they met up.
Samara Hnaien, 22, from Sydney, met up with Charles Harris, 23, on Saturday night after the pair matched on the popular dating app.
As pubs, clubs, cafes and restaurants are shut due to COVID-19 restrictions, the pair decided to hang out at his place.
‘The date was going very well, so we ended up kissing,’ Samara told BuzzFeed.
But their first-date quickly turned into a medical emergency ordeal after Samara started experiencing a tingling sensation in her mouth during their kiss.

‘You met up with a guy from Tinder… you’re at his house, you’re hooking up and then mid-hook up you get this tingly feeling in your mouth,’ she said in her TikTok video.
‘It feels like an allergic reaction but it doesn’t make sense because you’re only allergic to peanuts.’
Before their date, Charles had eaten a peanut butter sandwich.
‘So then I ask him “have you eaten peanuts tonight?” and he’s like “yeah, I had a peanut butter sandwich before you came over”,’ she said.
Samara said she then had to explain to her date about her severe nut allergy and instruct him to inject an EpiPen into her thigh before calling the ambulance.
‘So I explain to him I’m going to go into an anaphylactic shock, and he needs to give me an EpiPen in my thigh first time meeting,’ she said.

The pair headed to the emergency room together where Charles stayed by her bedside until 5.30am on Sunday.
‘He was really caring and genuine and made me feel at ease and kept reassuring me to not feel embarrassed,’ Samara told BuzzFeed.
‘I was just mortified and felt so bad for him… It’s a pretty confronting experience stabbing someone with an EpiPen especially when you first meet them.’
Despite the ordeal, Samara and Charles saw the funny side to their first date and decided to document the night on TikTok.
‘Invited a Tinder date over… I ate a peanut butter sandwich… Turns out she’s anaphylactic to peanuts,’ Charles said in a video from the hospital.
The pair both confirmed there will be a second date.
