Channel 4 are set to push the boundaries of what viewers can swallow with a brand new dating show featuring naked contestants.
The creators of Gogglebox and Tattoo Fixers are developing a risqué new show titled Naked Attraction which promises to be ‘like Blind Date, but with a serious twist.’ ‘The show has begun filming and it’s pretty full-on,’ the Daily Star reports.
I have been tempted to sign up to these dating agencies : one has been used on the undateables on channel 4. I have given up on online dating and the use of tinder as they are so image focused. Great that you have so many interests and you’re getting yourself out there and doing what you love; that’s half of the battle! There’s been many ways that disabled people have played the game of online dating, many have even experimented to see how many responses they get when their disability isn’t photographed or mentioned on their profile at all. But someone, somewhere will be for you, you’ve just got to keep trying (however tedious and lonely that can seem at times).
Are you involved in any groups or classes that relate to your skiing or love of fitness? I’m not suggesting you do this, but it is an option! Let me know if you want to chat some more; I can even introduce you to your local Wheelchair Basketball team if you’re interested?
