    It almost goes without saying - bed bugs are bad, especially for dating.
    It kills the mood.
    AreYouInterested.com, a dating app on Facebook, conducted a study of more than 100 of its Facebook Page members on how the recent bed bug explosion is affecting their love lives.

    56% of responders would leave their date if they noticed bed bug bites on his/her skin.
    47% would ask if their date had bed bugs before going back to his/her place.
    45% would cancel a date if someone admitted to a bed bug infestation.
    35% have changed their usual dating spots because of a fear of bed bugs.

    But one of the most interesting results is that "bed bugs" is the new "I have to wash my hair" excuse. 45% would use bed bugs as an excuse to get out of a bad date.
