Try applying a wider date range to your search to find past events.There is a scene on many episodes of First Dates (the Irish version is back on our screens now), which for several reasons, I’ll refer to as the money shot. “I just want to be treated like a lady,” they twinkle, because we all know that being a ‘lady’ means letting someone else pick up the fiscal slack, right?You know the one: the bill arrives to the table, resulting in a momentary standoff. This is a part of the show in which I cringe, occasionally chewing down on a cushion.

Although Irish (Gaelic) was their main language in the past, today the huge majority of Irish people speak English as their first language.
Historically, the Irish nation was made up of kin groups or clans, and the Irish also had their own religion, law code and style of dress.
The male dater swats this away with ‘of course not, I’ll get this’. “Don’t even think about going Dutch,” warned one recently, the forbidding way she might advise you to keep your feet off the dinner table, or leave your cat at home.
There have been instances in First Dates’ several series where a man, espousing equality between the sexes, offers to go Dutch. These are usually the women who, in their introductory link, shamelessly simper about being ‘high maintenance’ as though it’s a good thing.
