The most Irish thing ever is set to happen on First Dates' Valentine's special tonight
Have I met you before?
A line we've all used or heard on a night out. On our tiny isle, you can't go anywhere be it Mullingar or Tralee without knowing someone or knowing someone who knows someone who went to college with your ex.
Charming, isn't it.
Yes, our emerald isle is just so tiny that it's even possible for you to sit next to your blind date on the Luas while heading to the restaurant where you'll be filming the date, without even knowing it's your date until you're formally introduced to eachother.
"Have I met you before?"
And that's exactly what is set to happen tonight when Waterford makeup artist Diane is set up on a date with Eoin from Dublin.
❤️The countdown to #ValentinesDay is on. ❤️
There’s no better time to brush up on your dating skills so we thought we’d offer a few tips. ?

Speaking to The Irish Sun ahead of tonight's show, Diane said:
"I was surprised by how easily I forgot it was all being filmed.
"There's no cameramen there so you forget that it's a TV show. I'm just nervous about what I might have said!"
The special airs tonight on RTÉ2 at 9:30pm.
