    I think the entire show is contrived and artificial - but grabs viewers and it's why it screens. Even the greeter/manager seems slightly creepy, - and the annoying woman collecting the plates asking them how the date is going every five minutes [ probably all actors] - when they already have a camera man and sound man trained on them - it can't be natural. Some of the blame must go to the show's matchmakers - for mismatching the couples. The conversation at times is inane, a few of the men have come across as dorks, and the women seem decidedly average.

    Whether a person wears a turtleneck should not be a defining moment in a date - it's the guy inside the turtleneck - is a good, warm guy or an asshole. If he turned up wearing a $1000 suit it wouldn't change his personality - much easier to change clothes than a personality - if he jumped out of a rusty old fiat and into a Ferrari - it wouldn't change his demeanor.

    I haven't liked any of the women on the show yet, - and some of the conservation is really dumb.- Guy: How old are you? Girl: 19. Girl: How old are you? Guy: 18. Guy: I have a twin brother. Girl: How old is he? Girl: My family come from Holland. Guy: Isn't that in England?

    Other gems:
    when the young woman is talking to her friend in the bathroom - " have to get back, he might think I'm doing a number twos"
    Guy: Do you sleep with someone on the first date?

    etc, etc, I don't think we have a strong dating culture here, it hasn't evolved into that yet. Might just stick to the odd punt when I can afford it, - I certainly don't want the: " I like you as a friend" bit.

    I've never watched it, but I suspect you have the nail on the head there Zappa. Cringe-worthy generates ratings, and its about ratings, not matchmaking people for life.

    On a slight tangent, some will remember the target series. What it invariably showed was a group of Tradies going through the undie drawer. We were lead to believe this was the norm when Tradesmen were left alone in the house.
    It seems reality was that the first time was an unexpected and isolated incident, however it got a significant reaction from viewers. From that time on, Tradesmen were met at the house by an attractive lady, who left immediately after they were let in. Porn mags were left conspicuously on the coffee table, and no doubt the odd 'toy' left around. Exposing cringe-worthy behavior was great for ratings, and the show seemed intent on triggering it if they possibly could.

    In my humble opinion, Imnot looking for a one night stand if I was to date. I think the best idea for me if I was looking for someone and what has always worked for me in the past is to just socialize and everynow and then someone interesting comes a long, you get a talking, if I like him, yep he is for me, grab him by the balls and say we are now in a relationship. lol. If I see something (someone) I like I will take it. (him) Within reason.

    In regards to tv dating shows, they match people up that will get people watching the show, things like The Bachelor and what not, yes are all general bull kaka. Agreed.

    And Massage lover, I dont know what you look for on dates, if its for a one night stand or a relationship, but usually women look for a stable man with a job who will be a great partner and possible great father to our children. (Weather we think that is what we are looking for at the time or not) It is the way women are built.
    Present yourself well, have some confidence and be yourself. If you dont have a job yet, the best thing to do is to work on yourself and love yourself first, when you are able to do that the world is your oyster.

    Just my opnions

    I've only seen bits of the program a couple of times while channel surfing ... But the most fun and funny dates are the gay guys.

    They know how to have fun and a good laugh even if they don't want to hook up again they at least enjoy the date.

    Hetro's need to take a leaf out of their book and just go with the flow rather than take themselves and the 'date' too seriously.

    Not literally I hope - he might be in too much pain for a relationship for a while.

    Just a few further thoughts about the show. Genuine good conversation involves a 50/50 exchange between the man and woman or anyone. I notice both the men and women on the show are too keen to talk about themselves all the time, trying too hard to impress? - they could ask the other person about their job, do they enjoy it? have they traveled? any special interests, hobbies, talents? what type of food do they like? Most of the time it's one person dominating, with little interest in the other person. I've met people wanting to talk about themselves all the time, eventually I avoid them, because they're boring. Some of the "conversations" on the show have been classics:

    Guy: If you could have any powers what would they be?

    Girl: Um, don't know

    Guy: I'd have X ray vision so I could see through your dress

    Girl: Ha, Ha, I might actually be a man.

    I think guys and girls approach dating differently.
    Girls are looking for mr right for long term, guys are looking for miss chill with me, hang out, get to know.

    Unless the girl has been married for 17 yrs and just wants sex then less pressure for guys and a fun night ahead lol

    In other words you're just going to go as you normally are.
