Where was this show when I needed it?
Bev S. 31.7.08
A few years ago when I was online dating, I used to get lots of first dates but very few second ones. I knew there was something wrong with me and my approach, but it is difficult to get constructive feedback from people who have rejected you. But now there is a TV show on LOGO that addresses this dilemna! Can't Get A Date profiles gay men and women who are experiencing trouble on the dating scene. The host, a disembodied voice that is a cross between Hal in 2001 and a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, isn't afraid to inform guests that they are neurotic, dress tackily, and have bad skin. He also provides helpful commentary during video playback of their disastrous dates. The guests are then led through a makeover to improve their odds of finding someone. I could have used this show's help a few years ago when I kept striking out!
