Dating in the dark
Across London and as regular as clockwork, the team here at Dateinadash host fantastic Speed Dating events with a difference. A simple blindfold ensures the gorgeous bunch of singles in attendance cannot see anything, not even a peep and that is the whole point.In the name of research, we made a reservation at Opaque in San Francisco to see what happens when you and a date can’t see what’s happening. You can hold a hand an inch in front of your eyes and not see it. You form a single-file line and place one hand on the shoulder in front of you. It’s a very unique experience and it’s disorienting. And doing stuff without anyone seeing can feel delightfully naughty. Friends who’ve been say they definitely took advantage of the dark and indulged in some romantic moves. Make sure your hands are clean before you’re seated. It’s great if you like eavesdropping on other people’s conversations. If you want to go: They have versions of Opaque in LA, NYC, SF, Dallas, and San Diego. You’re then led past a velvet curtain, through a tiny maze, and into the unlit dining room. But dining in the dark wasn’t as sensual as touching and tasting someone in the bedroom. But it should be noted: If your date touches your knee under the table, you may just shriek like a startled four year old afraid of the tickle monster. You can also dine in the dark in Switzerland, Thailand, and all over the world. Would you spend a night out eating tuna tartare and chocolate cake in the dark with your date? It is true that some people consider the personality to be an added bonus on top of good looks while others consider the looks an added bonus on top of the personality. To ensure you do not see any of the other single people turning up to the event, men and women must arrive separately and at different times to make sure that there is no chance of seeing each other in the light.
With our Speed Dating event, here in London, you will soon discover what you believe is the added bonus to a person. It is then, at this stage, that you will be given instructions as how the Dating in the Dark event works by one of our knowledgeable hosts.Parents need to know that this dating series -- in which men and women choose prospective partners without actually seeing what they look like -- has a fair bit of kissing/makingo ut and sexual innuendo (including discussions about looking “sexy” and some brief conversations about prior sexual experience).
