Original dating game
The 1960s television show The Dating Game featured three contestants who competed for a date with a bachelorette.As the bachelorette could not see the contestants, she based her choice entirely on their answers.I believe that I will either re-wrap them in a groovy scrapbooking paper that I didn’t have handy at the time, or I will just take the sign out of its holder and post it to the wall. Update: I did adjust it and it looks SOOO much better, don’t ya think?Speaking of the wall: those flowers were a last-second addition as well.
Basically this is a "choose your own adventure" dating style game that will have a different outcome depending on your choices along the way. Move YOUR MOUSE over the picture to see the possible actions. The action you select will determine what happens next.
The ending of the show always had the host (Jim Lange) and the and winning contestants blowing a big kiss to the camera.
Has a very young Michael Jackson as the contestant Ok I finally get it, sixties “just for fun” television hits 21st century social media.

One contestant on the show was a young Tom Selleck but out of two appearances he was never chosen (I bet those bachelorettes were kicking themselves later!
