Australian woman Samara Hnaien, 22, and 23-year-old Charles Harris told Buzzfeed they had both been messaging on Tinder before deciding to meet up at Harris’ house. While bars and restaurants are shut in Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic, Australian citizens have not been instructed to stay in isolation as Kiwis have.
“As everything is shut, the date was just Samara coming over to my house to hang out,” Harris told BuzzFeed. “The date was going very well, so we ended up kissing…”
But during the smooch, Hnaien says she began to feel a strange tingling in her face and lips.
It turned out Harris had eaten a peanut butter sandwich hours before the date, triggering Hnaien’s sensitive allergy.
