New Dating App Blindlee Is Like 'Love Is Blind' But In Real Life
Love Is Blind was ridiculous on so many levels, but you can't deny the whole 'getting to know each other on personality alone' concept has its merits.
These days, people are too quick to pass on a genuine connection because they aren't instantly attracted to what they see.
The hit Netflix dating show provided us with so many LOLs, but it also forged *some* genuinely sweet - and lasting -relationships (we stan Lauren and Cameron).
Now, a new dating app is harnessing this idea in a really clever way.
Blindlee works by pairing you with someone random matching your criteria. You're then thrown into a 3-minute blurred video call with your potential suitor.
The app will suggest some fun topics and you'll carry out a mini first date, all while unable to properly see the person on the other end.
The call starts 100 per cent blurry, and as the date moves on, the woman has control of the blur (we like this). As you get to know one another, you can slowly reveal more of each other, but it's totally up to you.
At the end of the call, you're both asked if you like it. If you're both keen, you match and take it from there. Clever eh?
Much like Love Is Blind, your date will rely on voice, personality and general vibe before you see what they look like.
And to be honest, it sounds ideal for self-isolating singles with some time on their hands right now.
Firstly, it sounds like a laugh, and secondly, you might even find yourself a date for when all this is over. Win, win.
If you like the sound of that, you'll also love Instagram dating game Love Is Quarantine.

Carly on JOHN! Hmmmm he seems really into her but this recap is SAYIN something different.....he also guessed she was 5ft. Maybe that's what he wants? Maybe that turned her off? Also, what's up with John and all these random food questions lol two dates with JOHN at Wendy's and Taco Bell would tell him everything he needed to know LOLOLOL I stan. I :ship:. #JOHNCARL
Created by friends Thi Q Lam and Rance Nix, Love In Quarantine takes its cues from the Netflix show which enthralled the nation this year.
The idea is that singletons add their name, age and sexual preference to a massive Google spread sheet and Thi and Rance match them up for virtual dates.
But instead of a television studio, singletons have their dates over the phone (note: there's no knowing what they look like, just like in the Love Is Blind pods) and they then feedback as hundreds of fans follow the action on Instagram.
