Emily Hampshire Broke Down in Tears During Tinder Date Disaster After Divorce

The 'Schitt's Creek' actress recalls being reduced to tears during her first-ever Tinder date after she turned to dating app as her marriage to Matthew Smith fell apart.

AceShowbiz - Emily Hampshire burst into tears during a night out with a Tinder date.

The "Schitt's Creek" star has revealed she turned to the dating app after splitting from her husband Matthew Smith, but the whole experience quickly became a total disaster.

"I was freshly divorced and probably not ready to put myself out there," she told Us Weekly. "Tinder had just come out, so I started swiping. I see this guy sans tiger. And he looks clean and, like, employable and not a serial killer. So, like all the boxes: check, check, check."

The 39-year-old actress exchanged numerous messages with her date before their first face-to-face meeting. However, Emily was overcome with nerves as she prepared for her big night out.

"I don't remember the complete ensemble because my memory is trying to block this traumatic night out of my memory, but it involved like skinny spandexy jeans and heels," she grimaced. "The only thing I hate more than both those things is both of them together."

After they sat down at a table, Emily burst into tears and as her date tried to calm her down, her make-up rubbed off on the guy.

"He laughed when snot blew out of my nose and hugged me," the Canadian star remembered. "When he hugged me (with) his very clean white shirt, I basically left, like, an imprint of the joker face on his white shirt."

Emily admitted that the date was a total disaster and she holds herself responsible for the chaotic night out.

"I don't know if it's clear to you, but the worst part of this worst date is me," she laughed.

Despite this, Emily has remained in touch with the guy and they're now good friends.

"To this day, this is years later, we laugh about the snot bubble. My first ever Tinder date, Ari, is still my dear friend," she smiled.
