The Dating Game was an American T.V. show in the 1960s.

The format of the show was like this: a contestant, usually a pretty young woman, sat on the left side of the stage. Behind a wall, on the right side of the stage were 3 bachelors (single guys), or three batchelorettes (single girls). The contestant asked the bachelors, or batchelorettes questions. The questions were usually silly questions. For example: “If we were in an igloo how would you keep me warm?” or “What do you think is the most romantic vegetable?” The game had a time limit. After the time ran out the contestant chose his or her date.
