After watching VH1’s Tough Love, I swore off dating reality shows until the next season airs. Now I find out that there is a completely wacky new dating show set to air on ABC called Dating in the Dark. This takes blind date to a totally new, completely terrifying level!
The cast will have to actually use their *gasp* personality to appeal to each other. When I think about the concept of totally relying on your personality before looks to attract a mate, I think I would fare pretty well. You put me in front of a blind folded man and I am pretty sure he would be impressed and pleased with my personality. How many of us could actually make a man or woman become completely smitten without knowing what you look like?
This also makes me curious about why so many people who try online dating often put up the hottest pictures with little to no personal information. Do they assume that their looks would be enough to garner interest? Is that the type of single people they really want to attract?
Have you ever responded to an online dating profile that had no picture but a wonderfully written description? Can a person’s personality actually make them hotter than they are physically? How does that work?
Would you ever be willing to date in the dark?
