First Dates was an American adaptation of the British series of the same name which takes a peek at what happens when a couple meets for the first time and romantic possibilities seem endless.


This hourlong series offers an authentic look at a variety of real first dates happening over one night at the same restaurant in Chicago. The show features daters from cities across the country, and of all ages, sexualities and dating experience. Using a "fly-on-the-wall" and hidden-camera approach, viewers will be along for the ride as the dates unfold. Some dates could be wildly successful, while others strike out in hilariously awkward fashion. Never has dating been captured in a more real and relatable way. At the end of each hour, the daters must reveal to one another if they'd like to see each other again or if it will be back to love's drawing board!
