Bbc dating site
I’m writing this the morning after the BBC Horizon dating experiment in central London (Sunday 13th September 2015).We were asked and signed a contract saying we wouldn’t talk about the programme till the TX (TV transmission date). It was an interesting time and the experiments were quite good too.There was another test but to be honest, I got pulled away to do some stuff in a back room to the waiting camera about online dating.So much I wanted to say, but was told to keep it brief and look directly down the lens of the camera (hate that).I have no idea what just happened or if I’ll even be involved, but judging by whats been seen so far, it looks like I might be.I trust BBC Horizon have done everybody proud but he’s my view on what happened that afternoon in central London.I wrongly guessed her age and it turned out we were quite distant on age and places in our lives. It was clear the algorithm did work but only on the matching part, but did not factor in all the other things like looks, circumstance, desires, etc. End of the night, she left and we said goodbye while a bunch of us went to the Yorkshire Grey pub (George would be so proud) to discuss and carry on into the night.It was a warm night, so we sat outside on the benches, telling dating stories to each other. Everybody I spoke to had a good time they also had some good and bad stories about dating in recent times. Some numbers were exchanged but to be honest I think there will be maybe one or two who actually carry it further than a date or two (which still means Hannah’s algorithm would beat the year of making love! My match I’m unlikely to meet again, we didn’t swap anything and the pleasantries at the end of the night said it all.
The Horizon episode: How to find love online just aired and here’s a blog I wrote straight after filming for the show.
They were cavatted with the notion, it was getting most matches in the room rather than most ideal matches.
Regardless, our usernames were read out and we stuck our hands up to show pairings.
My match was a woman who I had speed dated earlier but thought we didn’t really get on because of my lack of knowledge about the smiths. Nope, but we did take a couple selfie on both our phones.
After the matching, were had the opportunity to spend time together just chatting away and some quick interviews from Zander and Hannah.
