La Toya Jackson Is Dating For The First Time Since Her Divorce (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

First dates can be awkward. Blind dates, even more so. Now imagine having your first blind date be with La Toya Jackson -- in front of cameras. This is exactly what firefighter George walked into when he was set up with Michael Jackson's sister, thanks to a matchmaking service.

Though La Toya has admitted that she's been single since 1996, the famous Jackson sibling finally decided to give dating a try. She meets George at a miniature golf course for her first date in more than a decade, nervous but intrigued. In this clip from "Life with La Toya," La Toya and her date finish a round of golf and sit down at a picnic table to get to know each other better.

"Why do you date?" La Toya asks George. "Do you date because you're serious and you are interested in marriage, or you just date just to date?"

"I want to find someone to spend the rest of my life with," responds George. As La Toya takes in his answer (and another nervous sip of champagne), George tests the waters, bringing up a possible second date: "I'm enjoying our date, I'm just wondering if we are really ever going to get a chance to go dancing. I would love to!"

After no response, George persists, asking La Toya for her number. She hesitates. "That's so weird, you have no idea. I don't even know what I'm doing right now," says La Toya. "Yes, I'll give you a number, okay? And I think you've been really wonderful."

George attempts to seize the moment. "I'm... I'm so nervous," he fumbles, looking away. "I was going to ask you if I could have a kiss."

Surprised, La Toya seems to recover quickly. "Yes, you may," she says, as George begins to stand. "No, I'm just kidding! I'm just kidding!"

Now George is the one who is surprised. La Toya explains, "I can easily say I never kiss on first dates. I think I need to get to know you a little bit more."

Then, privately to the cameras, La Toya says, "This will never happen in a billion years! Not on the first date. Absolutely not. No."

Though he doesn't try for a kiss again, George still persists in gaining some of La Toya's affection. Watch what happens after that awkward will-they-or-won't-they moment and see what La Toya has to say about going on a second date.

"Life with La Toya" airs Saturdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on OWN.
