Tired of Tinder? Fed up with Hinge? Bored with Bumble? If your thumb is sick of swiping left and right, RTÉ’s brand new RTÉ Player Original series, Love is in the Air, is the show for you.
This Sunday on RTÉ Player, you can watch six couples take their first dates outside in this new socially distanced dating format with locations across the Phoenix Park, Dun Laoghaire Pier and Lough Key Forest and Activity Park in Roscommon.
Showcasing the beauty of Ireland and the reality of dating outdoors in Irish weather – expect inside out brollies and muddy falls – Love is in the Air will take a look at the way people are dating in a pandemic.
Thanks to COVID-19, being single in Ireland has changed radically. Twenty-somethings have swapped meeting for a drink in the pub for a walk in the great outdoors. Popcorn and a movie has turned into a spine shivering sea swim. And mingling at parties has been replaced by Zoom calls.
While we have been living in a bubble these past few weeks; our daters don their hats, coats, and gloves – it is winter after all – and get to know each other with a cycle by the sea, painting in the woods and plenty more.
This heart-warming series confirms that it is always worth looking for love… even in the great outdoors.
