Bravo is holding up the magnifying glass to OKCupid, Tinder, and the rest of the usual suspects in the wild modern world of digital romance.
This March the network will launch Online Dating Rituals of the American Male, a new docu-series which will explore the world of cyber courtships from the male perspective. The program aims to pull back the curtain on the culture of online dating by following Internet romances from the earliest stages of browsing and communicating to the anxiety-inducing dates with potential matches (who may or may not actually look like their profile photos). Each week, the show follows two men from across the spectrum as they explore the various stages and scenarios involved with finding true romance (or just a fling) online.
The docu-series will premiere on Bravo on Sunday, March 9 at 10 PM before it moves to its regular time slot on Thursdays at 10 PM with the premiere of the second episode on March 13.
Below, watch an exclusive trailer for the show, which should hit home for any online dating dabbler who’s ever been on the receiving end of a painfully bland “Hey, how’s it going?”:
