Has anyone seen this crazy show Married as First Sight?

They take two complete strangers and pair them up using some psychology test, and some experts who decide they are compatible, and then the couple meet for the first time on their wedding day.

Crazy social experiment.
So far none of the marriages worked out...I think.

Was that not like the Roman's concept of Valentine's day; where single men and women gathered at some place, a underground or something and then from a basket took out random names and those who were paired would try to be in a relationship for a period of time.

I can see it working in those times but in Modern days, with feminism and this nihilism permeating the culture, it offers opportunities for extreme awkwardness.

Especially from the male's point of view.

An interesting fact...in all the episodes I watched not a single man had issues with the woman's appearance, but with the females more than 3/4 did.
They were not attracted to the man they were paired with.

The episodes are about the men bending backwards to accommodate the female's misgivings.

I've seen something like this before taking place among the Buddhists, where they would gather in the street and pair other Buddhist males and females together and marrying them on the spot. Some of them actually stayed together for up to ten years and more. They were all deeply involved in the "letting it go" way of life, so discrimination wasn't really necessary..outside such modes of thinking, i don't think it will happen...

That's actually been going on for awhile..

more recent..

Basically, he's judge when one of his friends reveal information about him to which the women judge, by turning their lights on or off to signify if they're still interested, coining the phrase "no likey no lighty"..every episode i have watched, almost all of the women turn their lights off...

Since I read Carlo Valois' writings and some recent experiences all makes more sense to me in regards to female attraction - most men are indeed too feminized and empty-headed that there can be no attraction; but if a woman is starting to become attracted to the possibility of forming a relationship, she will dedicate her personal life to your ears (and body), thus she will say ''at this day I will have my birthday'' means she desires from you (if meant for you and not for indicriminate desire for attention) specific attention.
