Can Netflix's reality show Dating Kaleidoscope launch blind date make two strangers a soul mate?
When it comes to "dating", what comes to mind is probably the other half or the ambiguous person, or the person you've been thinking about for a long time and thinking about whether you should ask him to go out.
In most cases, we tend to have a certain degree of imagination and feeling about him, whether it's a chance encounter at a bar or a chat in a dating app, usually because he gets your attention, and you're willing to spend time with him for a meal and a movie.
On February 14, 2019, Netflix's reality tv show Dating Kaleidoscope premieres. It presents a different dating model, "Blind Date", in which you don't know what the other person looks like in advance, and everything is seen on the day of the date. At first glance, it may seem a bit risky, but in fact, you may be able to get to know him more objectively and truthfully by removing the distraction of "looking at people".
The protagonist of each episode will make an initial date with five strangers who have never met, and then choose one of them to continue to develop. The two people you're dating will only know each other's names before they meet. Appearance, age, occupation, interest, will not be disclosed in advance, if you are really curious, in the dating process to ask for it yourself!

Who did you see your shadow in?
Dating is the thing: eat a meal, have a drink, and know that we don't fit
Sometimes, we use the appearance or a single point of account to determine whether we and this person are suitable, which may be time-saving, but may also miss each other.
The advantage of "blind dating" is that you can avoid preconceived judgments. In any case, give each other a chance to eat a meal, a glass of wine, even if found that the two sides can not become lovers, as a friend, expand the circle of life is also good.
Lenord vs Karen: Both sides admit that they are too different to develop further. So, Lenord generously introduced other single friends to Karen to know, not embarrassed, the two still have a lot of fun.
And a good date, in addition to calling each other, more importantly, let both sides feel comfortable. Remember, you always have the right to choose to leave when your date's behavior makes you uncomfortable.
