Episode 3: Shopping for a Mate: Video Dating (Cosmopolitan, May 1983)

For this edition of the podcast, we go back to the totally awesome ‘80s where we hear of one woman’s adventures in the wild world of video dating. 

Video dating was quite popular in the ‘80s, and we even had a game show centered around the whole concept (Love Connection, anyone). By the mid-90s when online dating gained speed, the old, slow concept of video dating was pretty much obsolete, and those old profiles live on as embarrassing reminders of what people did to attract their potential mate on YouTube.
