Love is Blind - Try 'Dating in the Dark'

In this modern society, we rely too much on our eyes to pre-judge whether someone is worthy of our love, time and effort. The experienced dating coaches of Relationship Studio realize that many individuals are too bothered by the achievements and outward appearance of a potential partner that they forget to go back to the basics - the heart, personality and character, which is what really matters.

As such, Relationship Studio will bring singles back to what is most fundamental - Love is Blind, and they mean it literally! Nox - Dine in the Dark, a pitch-dark dining room restaurant served by the visually impaired waiters and world-class chefs, provides a great environment to run the event, "Dating in the Dark". For the first time ever in Singapore, 12 eligible individuals will be put together in this miracle ground for a 2.5 hours lunch. No lights, no mobile phones, no distraction. The 12 individuals will not get to see how each other look like till after the meal is over for the moment of truth!

1. You may miss out on a potential "Mr./Ms. Right"

Yes, time is limited and it is our tendency not to waste time on someone when you do not feel a 100% YES in your heart when it comes to looks. However, I would like to plead with singles to understand that: it only takes $1000 and 1 week for someone to change on the outside. Moreover, man increases in their charm as they age just like a good bottle of wine. On the contrary, what is going to happen if you are 100% pleased with the outward but he/she has major flaws which needs fine tuning? Will $1000 and 1 week do the job? We rather you choose to revamp the potential partner on the former aspects than to expect a change on the latter, because some internal issues, can be rather permanent and hard to change. You may not even get to see a change in this lifetime, do bear that in mind.

2. You are actually being very shallow

As much as you would like others to give you a 'chance', why not follow the Golden Rule? Do unto others what you would like others to do unto you! Your acceptance for someone's vulnerability also opens a way for him/her to accept yours. When you are not Angelina Jolie, please do not expect a Brad Pitt material guy to go for you. I have hosted so many speed dating events whereby girls are all crowding around the most handsome guy in the room. I am not sure if you would like your man to always receive this kind of attention when you are dating him, or if you think you can "keep" him with your level of charm. Life can be very challenging thereafter, have you thought objectively about it? Do you see yourself turning into a jealous freak, having to manage all these "attention" and feel insecure about it? In any case, go for someone who want you and will reciprocate the way you do. What's most important is the inside. Looks fade with time, but character doesn't. Some one once told me, when you are married to someone, you are married to his/her CHARACTER, not his LOOKS. Thats so true!


Co-hosting with the previous facilitator of "Dialogue in the Dark" and current server at NOXRelationship Studio is going to make "Dating in the Dark" a success. Just as "Dialogue in the Dark" provides an uninhibited environment for expression, "Dating in the Dark" aims to provide individuals with the same environment for introspection, healing, expression, and most importantly "see" from the heart.

Cindy was on air last Thursday at Kiss 92FM to share with listeners on the event "Dating in the Dark".
