The hit RTE2 series 'Pulling With My Parents' is back with a brand new cast of unlucky-in-love singletons who have been brave, or stupid enough, to allow their parents complete access to their dating apps
From Tinder to Grindr, Bumble and Scruff, parents get a crash-course in dubious emojis, inappropriate pictures and questionable approaches as they try to find a perfect match. This eye-popping look at the digital dating world reveals to unsuspecting parents just what their pride and joy gets up to online, and some of the jaw-dropping messages that are sent and received on a daily basis.
These toe-curling conversations are the basis from which parents spring into action, revamping profiles and changing pictures in order to make a suitable match. The folks also go back to basics, searching for the perfect partner on the streets, at festivals and at the local GAA club.
Nothing is left to chance, because when the dates finally arrive, the parents are watching on, able to talk to their child directly, making sure they do and say exactly what they are told – often with inadvertently hilarious results.
Warm, funny and more than a little bit rude, ‘Pulling With My Parents’ explores the generation gap and serves up some blunt advice as a generation who did their courting the old-fashioned way, attempt to crack the cupid conundrum for their kids.
Mondays on RTÉ2 at 9.35pm.
