Among the new daters on First Dates Ireland this week are Tony and Lexie.

They're a wee bit older than the average dater in the restaurant but there's still plenty of potential for romance.

Although maybe not quite as quickly as their younger counterparts.

Grandad Tony kicks off a discussion about younger daters, "I find even with the younger [daters], they have a different way of operating than we would say years ago."

Lexie agrees, "A different approach to relationships completely.  They meet each othe rand they're in bed within half an hour."

"I wouldn't like that at all," replies Tony, before adding, "Now, two and a half hours, two and a half hours is fine!"

Lexie laughs and calls him a chancer before he jokes, "So there'd be no point in me to book the bridal suite tonight or anything like that, no?"

"No harm in trying," laughs Lexie.

First Dates Ireland continues on Thursday on RTÉ2 at 9.30pm
