Everyone’s talking about: First Dates Ireland

Another week, another selection of hopeful singletons, and a nation of viewers who are keen to talk rejection etiquette.

It’s a theme Twitter has visited many times before, but last night’s episode of First Dates Ireland really kicked discussion up a gear.

After Valerie and Patrick’s particularly awkward date, she allowed him to take the lead when discussing the future, despite knowing she had no intention of seeing him again.

And Twitter wasn’t here for it.
