No matter how many you've been on, no matter how much of a Tinder pro you may be, most first dates tend to be a little on the scary side. You're putting yourself out there, projecting your best self and getting to know the other person in the hope that you share more than a right-swipe in common.

The theatre is an age old port of call for a first date as it eliminates the chances of an awkward silence, but deciding on the right movie can prove a tricky mission. Depending on your sense of humor and how much you like to make your new squeeze squirm, sitting through a cringe-worthy sex scene or an extremely painful breakup can either prove a fantastic judge of character or an excruciating deal breaker.

So, are you a true pioneer of the phrase 'go hard or go home' or do you like to play it safe? We've rounded up 13 of the boldest movie choices one could make on a first date to see how hardcore you really are.

1. Antichrist

From toddler suicide to genital mutilation, Lars Von Trier's Antichrist isn't really the kind of movie you'd want to watch before you sleep, or eat, or before you do anything really, let alone a first date.

Poll

First date, would you?

2. Blue Valentine

So we've just sat through a 2 hour movie which documents the all too-real devastating demise of true love. Umm...shall we give this a shot anyway, or just say goodbye now?

Poll

First date, would you?

3. The Human Centipede

But what if the car breaks down on that hypothetical trip we might hypothetically take a few years down the line? And, hypothetically (obviously, but it says a lot about a person) where would you be placed?

Poll

First date, would you?

4. Nymphomaniac

If you've picked this for date number one, at least they'll know what they're getting themselves into early, eh?

Poll

First date, would you?

5. The Break Up

This thing we have here might hurt in a few years time, so it's probably best we acknowledge that now.

Poll

First date, would you?

6. Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom

Oh, a group of perverted fascists kidnap a bunch of people and burn their nipples off? Perfect! Shall we grab a slice of pizza after?

Poll

First date, would you?

7. American Psycho

Patrick Bateman seemed so normal at first...wait...do you even know who you're on a date with?

8. Revolutionary Road

It's ok, things will be different for us...

Poll

First date, would you?

9. A Serbian Film

It's one way to open the topics of pedophilia, necrophilia and snuff porn, I guess?

Poll

First date, would you?

10. Don Jon

An hour and a half of watching a porn addict masturbate? Nope, not awkward in the slightest.

Poll

First date, would you?

11. Requiem For A Dream

I heard getting high together can be quite a romantic experience?

Poll

First date, would you?

12. Closer

Come on. Everybody cheats...right?
