Got a pimple? It doesn’t matter with this new type of dating. A quirky craze of « speed-dating with a paper bag over your head » has just been launched in London. It’s been dubbed « the thinking person’s Tinder » because decisions are fast but based on personality (and body) alone. The event has just debuted at the British Science Museum and, according to organisers, it’s bags of fun. « It was a really good laugh, » said Jacques Beaupierre, 24, a Londoner who attended the event. « It wasn’t as materialistic as normal speed dating and you actually do get to know their personalities. » The trend was the brainchild of the London-based « cupids » at Loveflutter.com who have also created a smartphone app with the ethos #SayNoToShallow. Each participant wrote an amusing comment or personal fact on their bag to act as a conversation starter. Examples included « I have three kidneys » and « Secretly, I want to be a hand model. »
