A guy brought his own cutlery on First Dates Ireland and everyone was like YE WHAT

It’s a germ thing!

LAST NIGHT BROUGHT another enjoyable episode of First Dates Ireland, as well as a bit of a First Dates, erm, first.

Wes from Ballymun was paired up with Lady Gaga superfan Sunil, and they initially got on like a house on fire.

Then, when it was time for the food, Wes did something we haven’t seen on the show before – pulled out his own cutlery. Yep, he had a knife and fork wrapped in a little napkin in his pocket.

Sunil was… confused.

Wes: My mam was like “Are you taking that cutlery? You better bring it home!” *laughs heartily*
Sunil: …Yeah.

Don’t worry though, he can explain! It’s a germ thing:

I have a bad habit of doing this. I carry my own hand sanitiser and I hate when people sneeze.

The viewers at home weren’t convinced, however.

Despite the awkward first impression, Wes endeared himself to some viewers (and shocked others) by giving precisely zero f**ks:

At the end of the date, both ‘cutlery boys’ said they’d like to meet each other again – even though they agreed that Sunil had “no idea what he was in for” with Wes. LOL.

He seems to be well able for him, though:

Sunil also revealed on Twitter that the pair ‘ate each other’s faces’ in Pantibar later that evening. GO ON THE LADS.

We do love when it all works out in the end. Ah First Dates, you never fail to entertain <3
