Netflix's 'Dating Around' Is Like 'The Bachelor,' But WAY Better

Netflix recently came out with a reality TV show called "Dating Around" and if you like "The Bachelor," then you'll love this!

"Dating Around" is about six couples who go on blind dates with five different people. Each show consists of the first five dates, then the person looking for love has to pick one of those people to go out on a second date with which you don't find out until the end of the episode.

What makes this show different from "The Bachelor" series is that this seems more real, and the producer from "The Bachelor" who is now producing this show agrees 100%. "The truth is, "The Bachelor" is a fantasy show about Cinderella. "The Bachelor" isn't real. This show to me, felt like what real people do: Try to connect with others through conversation," says the ex-Bachelor producer, Alycia Rossiter.

This show captures the essence of what actually goes on during first dates, the conversations, the nerves, the accidental dialogue, the bits of awkwardness, and the filler jokes. Each date is so different which is what makes it so interesting to watch, and my favorite part is trying to guess which one of these dates went the best before the end! You'd be surprised how many times I have been wrong!

Every episode is someone with a completely different background whether it is a divorced Indian woman looking for a partner after family pressure ruined her first marriage, or an old widower just trying to find love again. This show is unique in its diversity as well as in its emphasis on the word "reality" as a reality show. Every blind date has someone with a personality varying from the other and I think that's what makes this show so interesting.

The editing is so seamless and everything flows so well, there aren't any unnecessary gaps and the show is very fast paced which makes it very EASY to binge the whole season in one sitting. It's very watchable and it almost makes you think that blind dates really aren't as bad as they might be perceived? Maybe?

This show can be appealing to everyone so if you haven't seen it, go check it out and let me know what you think.

Even though there isn't a rose ceremony at the end, it's worth the watch!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
