There are often some very unusual characters on First Dates Ireland (do we remember the guy who lost his virginity to a ghost last week?) but occasionally there are some gems on there too.
This week viewers were in for a treat with older couple Lorraine (75) and Michael (81) on the show. Twitter erupted last night with people calling them golden oldies, and finding them utterly adorable.
Not only that, but many were recommending we all took some dating advice from the pair saying “Showing us how it’s done.” and “If you want to learn how to conduct yourself on a date, please watch Lorraine and Michael on tonight’s show.”
The pair gave us all a lesson in old school manners and romance and viewers were welling up at how sweet they were together.
To make things even better their date ended with the happy news that “Lorraine and Michael now meet regularly”.
