Is love in the air? Just maybe for these six singles at the heart of the new Netflix reality series Dating Around.
Released on Valentine's Day, because, you know, love, the new series devotes an entire episode to one single who goes on five different first dates. At the end of each episode, the single at the center picks which of the five first dates they want to pursue for a second night out. The cast is probably the most diverse of any dating show around, featuring members of the LGBTQ community, elderly and many folks of different ethnicities.
Meet them below.
