Dating in the Dark

No, I did not come up with this title all by myself, it's from the new TV Show airing on ABC. So a friend of mine told me about this new show and I decided to see what its about (ok, the truth is, there is nothing playing on TV anymore, so just the thought of using the remote was tempting). Some 'brilliant' dude came up with this idea all on his own and turned it into a reality show. In short, there are 3 guys and 3 girls and they only date each other in a dark room where they can't see anything. The audience can view the dates because they use infrared cameras to capture in the dark. At the end, they can ask to see the guy/girl that most appealed to them and the spotlight shows that guy/girl for 30 seconds while the other guy/girl gets to see him in the dark, so the guy/girl in the spotlight can't see a reaction.

Umm, hello?!?! sounds a little familiar? ok, we don't have infrared cameras along with a filming crew coming on dates with us, but admit it=we're all in the dark. This is what blind dating is all about (unless you get setup with a neighbor, friend, or cousin), you get info, you call random numbers aka 'references' who always tell you nice things, then you go out and BAM-the spotlight shines down on your date-that first minute you see them before you leave on your actual date. Only, they can see your reaction. So whether you like them or not, or think they are seriously U-G-L-Y, you keep smiling and continue on...

Wonder who has it better, Frum Singles in Shidduchim or guests on Dating in the Dark?

stay tuned....
