Watch Me Date

Watch first dates firsthand with Guardian Blind Date’s new series

Our friends from the Guardian’s Blind Date column have launched a new series called Watch Me Date, in which brave volunteers film their dates.

“Each week, we’ve chosen two different people, given them two pairs of Google Glass and packed them off on a date (there is usually a lot of alcohol involved too). Filming begins the minute they meet, and that off-button is only pressed once they’ve said goodbye. The results? You’re right there with them, on these awkward, often funny and sometimes even romantic first dates.”

Readers of the regular Blind Date column will be familiar with the usual format: two people are sent on a date, and then tell the readers how they got on. But with Watch Me Date, the evening is filmed from each participant’s headset, and we can see for ourselves how it went.

Table manners – judge for yourself…


The daters tell us how the date went, and what they thought of each other.


They also answer that all-important first-date question…


The series is available now, and you can apply to take part by emailing
