'Are you actually asking me this on a first date?' - tension in store for First Dates episode 2
The furore is only dying down after the first episode of First Dates Ireland and the second is almost upon us, promising to offer some magic moments of its own.
On Wednesday night's new episode Ciara, who was stood up last week, will return for a date with Kias and they get off to a bit of a shaky start when Kias asks a rather direct question.
"How soon after you've been on a date would you have sex?" he enquires.
"Are you actually asking me this on a first date?" replies Ciara.
"Yeah, but I just mean in general like..." says Kias as Ciara throws the question back at him.
"I just am of the opinion that I wouldn't... I'm not all about that but if it's going that way naturally let it go that way. Do you know what I mean? Cos I like to play like. It's a good thing. Don't stop it like but at the same time I'm not all about that."
Ciara gives a rather diplomatic response, "I think it's just whatever goes, it's who is the fella, who you are, what the situation is..."
Also new this week is Mark who admits he pampers himself in preparation for a first date.
"I absolutely love getting prepared to go out on a date," he says. "I finish work about 2, get myself out for a facial. I look after myself for the whole afternoon so I'm totally chilled, relaxed, all that type of stuff."
