On December 20, 1965, ABC aired the Dating Game. If you havent seen a rerun, three young men vied for a date with a young woman who was hidden from their view. She asked questions specially prepared to reveal the romantic nature of each man and later chose the one with whom she would like to have a date. The couple was given either a night on the town or an expense-paid trip to some fun locale. The game was also played with one bachelor choosing from three ladies. The show was very popular; it lasted eight years.
The popularity of the show was wrapped in the common experience of the excitement and intrigue in finding that special someone. We have all been there at one time or another. And for many of us, the title of the show, "the Dating Game" is a little ironic as it describes our relationship experience; dating has been one giant game. This series is meant to help bring fulfillment to this season in your life, and to lay a foundation for successful relationships now and in our future marriages.
