When your dating life consists of reading the "missed connections/men seeking women/women seeking men/men seeking men" section of craiglist (did i just admit that, yes, yes i did lol) and laughing hysterically by yourself over the website textsfromlastnight.com you could use something refreshing, something mindless to be reminded about the joys of being single...
My new tv obession, Dating in the Dark. It brings the lol's and is a train wreck all in one.Yet you can't look away, it is reminiscent of (another fave) The Swan. You love the contestants and hate them, envy their ability to let it all hang out on national television, and tear up for the guy that gets dumped at the end of the show. All in all it is amazing.
Airs Monday night on ABC:
"Dating in the Dark is a unique alternative series that asks the age-old question, "Is Love Blind?" Each week, three single men and three single women, all looking for love, will move into a house together, but be totally sequestered from the opposite sex. While they will have no chance of seeing each other in the light, they will have the opportunity to date in a completely dark room. Looks will be taken out of the equation as the men and women get to know each other and form bonds in total darkness. After several days of dating in the darkroom, the participants will select the one member of the opposite sex that they want to see revealed in the light. For the first time, the participants will see whom they've been dating, wooing, kissing, snuggling with and forming bonds with. And after they see each other in the light for the first time, they have to make the difficult decision...do they stay with the person they fell for in the dark, or leave them behind? Hosted by Rossi Moreale (Can You Duet?, Temptation). "
