HOW far would you travel for a date?

If your name is Josh and you live in Southampton, the answer would be... not very far at all!

The 26-year-old single man is looking for love on E4 reality show One Night Stand.

But a short snippet from his date with Sally, 24, has gone viral on social media after Josh made it quite clear he wouldn't be travelling to meet her for at least the next few dates.

"I've got a rule. I don't travel for girls," he says in the video.

A surprised Sally asks him where he thinks they'll be meeting up next, to which Josh replies: "You'd have to come to Southampton. Especially the first two or three times."

He goes on to say: "Once I see effort, once I see that a girl's keen and she does the right thing and she shows she wants me, then I'll put in effort as well."

Sally, from Harlow, Essex, asks him if he wouldn't even consider meeting halfway.

His answer leaves her unimpressed: "Nah, not at the moment," he says, adding that if she did make the 240-mile round trip to Southampton a few times "that would actually show me that you're keen. Interested."

After watching the exchange, featured in episode 4 of the first series, viewers seem to have taken Sally's side.

Commenting below E4's Facebook story, one person said: "Where’s your effort? this should be a hard no from every female in the world."

"If you’re not prepared to make the same amount of effort as each other then just don’t bother dating at all," said another one.

Have they got a point? We'll leave it up to you to decide.
