UNFORTUNATELY, LAST NIGHT’S First Dates Ireland was missing out on some genuine romantic matches.
Sometimes it just doesn’t work out between a pair, even when they’re both really sound.
And so it was with Aidan and Lucy
They were first into the restaurant, so anticipation was high for a quality date – and on paper they were very well matched too.
Aido got the chair for her when she arrived in and Matteo was fairly impressed:
“They don’t make them like you any more”
Straight away, this joke about driving a golf ball didn’t land and it was a portent of things to come
But they’re both SOUND. We’re not used to this level of awkward
There were a few awkward silences and chats about the size of the table
It was… small
Maybe they’d turn it around in the second half? Like, usually things get better as it goes on? Nah.
“First dates are so hard!”
It was a tough watch (and probably even tougher for the pair actually on it)
One question by Aido gave us a good ten-second-long awkward silence:
“So, what has you here?”
Surely this couldn’t be a match?
But, wait! A moment of hope in the interview ahead of her decision.
Lucy had some *very* nice things to say about him
And when they sat down together Aidan went first – and he was happy to see her again
Lucy wasn’t feeling it though:
“I’m going to say… no”
Judging by the public’s reaction, it was one of the most awkward dates we’ve ever seen
There was a kicker at the end too, when she said he’s an absolute gentleman:
“What were you looking for then… an asshole?”
End this now
And then they had to take the elevator together:
“This is great, isn’t it?”
Better luck next time lads <3
