Netflix's Dating Around Looks Like the Most Earnest Dating Show on TV

The dating docuseries debuts on Valentine's Day

Liam Mathews

Netflix is launching what the service calls its first dating reality show, Dating Around, just in time Valentine's Day.

The first trailer for the documentary-style series dropped on Tuesday.

On each episode of Dating Around, one single person goes on first dates with five different people. Who will be super awkward? Who will make a meaningful connection? Who will get a second date? You'll have to watch to find out!

Dating Around is a dating reality show, but it's not a game show like Singled Out or Room Raiders or The Bachelor. It takes a more honest and direct approach. Its format, lighting style, setting and Netflix connection puts me in mind of the Master of None episode "First Date."

Binge it if you're single and dating and want to see someone else go through what you're going through, or if you're in a relationship and want to remember what it's like to not be.

Dating Around drops Thursday, Feb. 14 on Netflix.
