Ro­mance needs time

The TV Guide - - MR TELLY - AN Christie (Ro­torua)

We are in­trigued with the pro­gramme First Dates NZ screen­ing on TVNZ 2 on Thurs­day evenings. The young men seem in most cases to be gen­uinely seek­ing a part­ner, but what is wrong with the girls? They harp on about ro­mance, but has no­body sug­gested to them that ro­mance has to grow from an ini­tial lik­ing and friend­ship? A viewer can usu­ally see that a cou­ple have the in­gre­di­ents for a true part­ner­ship, but the flighty girls dis­miss any like­li­hood of tak­ing the in­ter­est fur­ther. Have their brains been ad­dled by the in­flu­ence of Amer­i­can non­sense?
