Rob’s date, who also happens to be called Rob, has not yet arrived as he already declares his love to the 70-year-old gardener. “Now that I meet you: I think that’s really great! I’m also very honest. I don’t know what you think, but I already have butterflies in my stomach.” Rob Verlinden cannot believe his ears: “That is very smooth”. Rob is quickly reassured by his date: “They are only small butterflies.”
Viewers at home, like Rob Verlinden, are shocked by how quickly his date declares his love to him. “I would be very shocked by this,” someone says on Twitter. Another: ‘If a woman would talk to me in a first date like Rob about prince in shining armor and all, then I would be away for the main course’
Ultimately, the date turns out to be no match. “I don’t have that feeling”, Rob Verlinden says clearly to Rob.
Sipke-Jan Bousema also participated in First Dates VIPS. He is still in touch with his match. You can see more about it in the video below.
