The Lowdown on Love

So, recently I told you about how I’m collaborating with eHarmony on a video series called The Lowdown on Love.

Or as I like to call it: How To Weed Out The Crazies.

Well, not really. But I do help you with that – and it’s a community service I’m only too happy to provide. Because it’s tough out there, by gum. Tougher than getting Rosie Huntington Whitley’s abs on a cheeseburger diet. And I should know, I’ve tried! On both accounts.

We shot the series a few weeks ago and I thought I’d  give you a gander at what goes on behind the scenes on one of these things. And also what I learned, which included the following:

– Guys do actually notice what shoes you wear on a first date.
– You shouldn’t wait any more than four weeks to organise a face-to-face meeting with someone you met online.
– Don’t drink four cups of tea before sitting in front of a camera for six hours.

Needless to say if I learned something from my fellow eHarmony Relationship Experts, I’m sure you will too. And I think we came up with some pretty choice remedies to your love quandaries between us. In the end, we’re all just muddling through this dating thing hoping something sticks (in the good forever-lover way, not in a need-to-wash-the-sheets way) so a little help never goes astray.

The completed videos will be up soon, but in the meantime here a few choice pics to whet your whistle.

The amount of sheer stuff and things it takes to get the job done…

I’m pretty sure I was asking if I had something in my teeth here.

And clearly I’m saying something HIGHLY amusing here.

And the director is saying something much less amusing here…

Oh, and the clapper! Nothing makes you feel more profesh than a for reals clapper.

The point they told us there was wine and cheese. I’m trying to play it cool but I pretty much elbowed them all to the ground to get to the brie first.

Stay tuned for the final results super sooooooon.
