If you have wondered how blind dates help people find their perfect partners, Netflix’s ‘Love Is Blind‘ should be right up your alley. The exciting dating reality show brings together a group of singles from different backgrounds before asking them to go on blind dates. Herein lies the catch: during the dates, the contestants aren’t allowed to see each other but can only talk from separate custom-built pods. Once a pair takes the next step and gets engaged, they are allowed to meet face-to-face before being sent off to a couple’s retreat to spend a few days together.
