"What is love?" was a question posed to one of the daters on the first episode of the new season of 'First Dates Ireland', and we think Haddaway said it best because last night's episode was like getting shot in the heart. 

It was an emotional rollercoaster for everyone as we went from joyfully watching young couple Paddy and Laura successfully go on their first date ever to suffering the heartbreak of watching Richard be crushed by Timmie's rejection.

In case you missed it, this was the moment it all went south.

Horrific. Stung by Richard's pain, Twitter was where everyone went to vent and seek solace.

It wasn't all heartbreak though, as RTE gave us an update about Paddy and Lauren after the show aired.

And at least we have Maitre D' Mateo, the one constant shining light in all this heartache, to keep us going.
