Dating in the 80’s was hard. Remember big hair, M.C. Hammer pants, acid jeans, long-haired rocker bands and side pony tails and scrunchies?

How could anyone get a date in the 80s? What were we thinking?  What did we do without the internet? We couldn’t very well create an online profile that makes us look 10 times better than we really are.  There was no texting or caller ID on the phone. We were forced to be social, and have face to face interaction. We were forced to TALK to one another. There was no hiding the fact of who we really were.

Before  Match, eharmony, sugardaddy.com or Facebook, there was…wait for it…video dating.In honor of Valentine’s Day, lets take it back a little. reminisce over moustaches, mullets, bad personalities, and creepy comb-overs. Sit back and enjoy an 80’s montage of bad video dating.
