When it comes to dating, most of us have the same questions, apprehensions, fears, and neuroses:
Should I approach him/her at a bar? How long should I wait to text? Should I text or call? Should we do dinner or drinks on a first date? Should we make it official on social media?
Though many young professionals (YPs) are seasoned enough in the dating department to have practice in these areas, we could all use a little advice here and there.
One Toronto YP, Dave Keystone, has decided to turn to the unfiltered and ridiculously adorable advice of those who are too young to date to get some answers. Keystone, who’s made a name for himself as a Canadian host, stars in “Kids On,” a web series by Canoodle Content that has blown up in a big way in the past week.
The concept is simple: Keystone discusses adult issues with kids in a variety of settings (from sitting on a boat to relaxing in a café). The kids, who range in age from 6-12, share their honest thoughts on the great debate between texting and calling, how to approach someone at a bar, and when to change your relationship status.
Each episode, 3-5 minutes long, offers truly comical advice from the mouths of some very smart children who may indeed be more rational than any of us when it comes to romance.
Keystone and his partner, director, co-creator, co-producer, co-writer and Nolan Sarner conceived the series, raised the dollars, recruited the kids, and produced the series entirely themselves. It was directed by Sarner.
A new episode will be released every Tuesday in the weeks ahead.
