In an extremely meme-able exchange, one contestant in the trailer quips, “I’m, like, the goodie girl. I’ve never done a drug. And you?” Her date’s answer? “Yeah, I love them.” (But not all couples, presumably, will be this mismatched.)
Another couple quickly realizes they have total “culture clash,” one woman tells her date he’s a “headache” and one man tells his date he’s unsure of their chemistry. To make matters even more demoralizing, Mr. Druggie mournfully says “I hate this s**t” after one of his dates. (Chin up!)
But it’s not all bad. Some couples appear to have genuine chemistry and there’s even talk of a second date. Yay for happy endings!
Each episode will show one single going on five first dates (what a nightmare) and will explore the ups, downs and supreme awkwardness of each evening out. At the end of the day the single have to decide who deserves a second date.
Dating Around fittingly premieres Thursday, February 14, (aka Valentine’s Day) on Netflix. We truly can’t think of a better way to spend the evening than watching The Dating Game 2.0 with a box of chocolates. Who’s with us?
