Tv show dating in the dark
This is how I found myself at the house where the show is filmed in south-west London along with two other contestants, twenty-something blonde Cecile and Danielle, a thirty-something brunette with wavy hair.
We were met by a producer and given a tour of the house.
A theme throughout the show is the emotional release experienced by telling everyone the secret.
While sharing secrets is a scary part of dating and friendships, it’s also what brings people closer together.
My eyes couldn’t penetrate the darkness and my ears failed to detect anything other than my quickened heartbeat.
From the way the hairs stood up on the back of my neck you would be forgiven for thinking I was trapped in a horror film.
While the hosts poke fun, confessions often lead more to sympathy than repulsion, and catharsis over shame.The producer ushered us into a blacked-out waiting room to give our eyes time to adjust to the darkness before a voice called us into the main room where our dates were waiting.
