First Dates has become an Irish institution, and between the Twitter banter and the actual show, we're officially hooked.
Usually, the show leaves us cringing, but last nights episode had a little something extra that made the cringe worth sitting through.
If the only reason we had a referendum is so that girl could like herself enough to go on #FirstDatesIRL it would still be totally worth it.

Carol, from Glasnevin opened up about how the Marriage Equality Referendum completely changed her life, and inspired her to be herself.
“I’d been spending too much time in the Porterhouse and not enough time in The George,” she chuckled, calling 2015's marriage referendum “life-changing.”

Carol was paired with the very retro and glamorous EJ, short for Elizabeth-Jane, and while the pair instantly hit it off over a whiskey sour, they unfortunately didn't feel the sparks and declined to go on a second date.
However, the potential couple reminded us of how amazing and positive the effects of the marriage referendum had on the LGBTQ community.
