#onlinedting | Blind Date: PLAY magazine and PerthNow are here to give Perth’s dating scene a leg up

PLAY magazine has picked up Cupid’s bow and is taking aim.

Tomorrow marks the launch of Blind Date, an exciting new column in PLAY magazine helping Perth singles find their happily ever after.

“There might be a multitude of dating apps, but that doesn’t mean actually finding love is any easier … well, here is a new way,” PLAY matchmaker Krystal Sanders said.

Each week Sanders will send two singles on a date and then get all the goss on how it went.

“I have no doubt we will get some success stories and some not so great dates. After all, anything can happen when you put your heart on the line,” she said.

Our first couple feature in PLAY magazine tomorrow. Social media marketer Taylor, 24 and gym membership consultant Keegan, 26, enjoyed dinner together after bravely agreeing to be the first couple to try the new format.

“Heading into the date I didn’t know what to expect, there was definitely some nerves not knowing what the other person was going to be like,” Keegan said. “But like most things in life that are worthwhile you have a mixture of nervousness and anxiousness and excitement.”

Keegan said he had previously tried online dating but was not a fan. His date Taylor agreed.

“I do love a new experience, and this was better than online dating,” Taylor said.

“It’s always interesting to have someone else pair you up with someone as you’re not making the right choices, so someone else might.”
