Why Am I Still Single? w/t – One single man and one single woman turn detective on each other’s love lives in an attempt to answer an all important question.
By uncovering the behavioural patterns and emotional make-up of a total stranger they will get the greatest insight and a fresh perspective into the reasons behind their own dating disasters and wrong turns when it comes to finding love.
The two strangers will meet each other’s friends, families and ex-partners, be given free access to each other’s emails and social networking accounts and even sleep in each other’s beds. Before they’ve even met, these two singletons are going to uncover the most intimate details of each other’s lives. From interrogating exes on the real reasons they broke up, delving into each other’s childhoods, reading teenage love letters and even uncovering drunken email exchanges. Both of them will attempt to discover how each other’s behaviours and attitudes are sabotaging their search for love. Subjecting each other’s relationship history to intense scrutiny, they’ll come to reflect on their own reasons for still being single.
And when the two of them finally meet up, each will reveal why they think the other person is single and what they have to do to remedy it. A few weeks later we return to see if confronting the truth about their relationship failures and following each other’s instructions has helped them to make a change.
This show will reveal the consequences of a stranger digging around in your past. Can someone you have never met before see things about you that you just can’t see about yourself? And can two complete strangers help each other to find love and happiness?
