If you're searching streamers for shows like Love Is Blind, we've got you covered. 

Romance is tough enough, but adding an element of anonymity into the mix doesn't necessarily bode well for budding relationships. But it certainly ups the ante for those tuning in! 

Fortunately there are plenty of odd reality dating shows that match hopeful romantics with someone they've barely even seen—quite literally. What makes for a better Netflix marathon than that?

Now the Love Is Blind season 4 cast is just about ready to venture into the pods, we're patiently standing by, waiting for the turmoil and happy endings to unfold. But given that this season includes a man who proposes to two women, we're fairly certain we're in for a bumpy ride. 

(Psst: the first batch of episodes drop on March 24. Here's when and how to catch all Love Is Blind season 4 episodes!)

1. 'Perfect Match' (2023)

  • Where to watch: Netflix

The newest addition to Netflix's dating show lineup, Perfect Match left us hooked.This new guilty pleasure brought together singles from the streamer's various dating shows, who convened at gorgeous beachside accommodations to find their other half. And, as each Perfect Match episode hit Netflix, the couples changed. (We even consulted astrologers to compare the Perfect Match cast zodiac signs for compatibility.)

2. 'Sexy Beasts' (2021-present)

  • Where to watch: Netflix

Love Is Blind...but make it creepy.

In Sexy Beasts, couples are paired up while donning ridiculous prosthetics to see if they can form a connection before uncovering whether or not they're attracted to their date. 

After the festivities and the costumes come off, will those matches last?

3. 'Married at First Sight' (2014-present)

  • Where to watch: LifeTime, Netflix, Pluto TV

Imagine saying "I do" without meeting someone? That's the name of the game in this outrageous series (which includes multiple locations, like Married At First Sight Australia). 

Though couples take on the same trajectory as everyone else: marriage, a honeymoon and building a life together, they're met with the challenge of never seeing nor interacting with their "forever" person. 

Do you think you could handle an experiment like this? 

4. 'Next' (2005-2008)

  • Where to watch: Paramount+

Throwbacks are always welcome.  

The cringey MTV series—and we're not just talking about its 2000s fashion faux pas—is enough to turn hopeful romantics into killjoys. A group of women or men are vying for one contestant's heart, and they only have a second to make a first impression.

The person searching for love at any point can yell "next" throughout their date and move onto another contestant, even if they shout it right after the person gets off the bus.

5. '90-Day Fiancé' (2014-present)

  • Where to watch: FuboTV, Discovery+, Hulu premium subscription

Oftentimes romances begin online, but what happens when two lovers in question live on opposite ends of the world? In this series, couples reunite in the US and have 90 days to get engaged to access a green card, but is that enough time to build something real?

While on Discovery+, do be sure to check out 90 Day Fiancé: Love in Paradise, a tropical twist on the series, and its other spinoffs like 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? and more.

6. 'Love in the Flesh' (2022)

  • Where to watch: Hulu, BBC

Considered a cross between Love Island and MTV's Catfish, Love in the Flesh, follows newly introduced couples who began communicating online. Plus, it's hosted by Love Island contestant Zara McDermott, who is used to reality TV shenanigans. Once they meet in person at a gorgeous Greek villa, they'll determine if their connection is the real deal or not.

7. 'Cosmic Love' (2022)

  • Where to watch: Amazon Prime

Cosmic Love, Amazon Prime's dating series, is perfect for those who check their horoscopes on the reg. Although singles aren't forming connections behind walls, they are leaving their love lives in the hands of the stars. Contestants are split up by element—AirFireWaterEarth—and consult astrological matchmaking for finding a spouse.
