Most of the time you pick a potential mate based on what you see, but with this dating trend you’ll pick someone based on their scent. In fact, you won’t see what they even look like until later in the game.
This type of dating usually takes place at pheromone dating parties. If you’re planning to attend a party like this, you’ll be given specific instructions for how to capture your scent for potential dates.
Participants are often asked to sleep in the same t-shirt for three nights. Then, you place it in a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze it until it’s time for the party. This is designed to capture your scent and preserve it.
Once you arrive, your bag will receive a number. You’ll get the opportunity to smell the shirts of potential mates and they will get the chance to smell yours. At the end of the evening, participants can choose to talk with people whose scent they were attracted to.
The idea behind this is the idea that pheromones cause you to be biologically attracted to other people. While you can’t actually smell the pheromones, they enter your body through your nose and are thought to provide a biological reaction that sometimes results in attraction.
So far these parties have taken place in large cities such as New York and Los Angeles. But you should check in your town to see if one is being organized. If not, why not start your own?
