'Hello Cupid' series premiere: Looking4Love

Season 1 | Episodes 1 & 2 | Aired Mar 10 & 17, 2013

In the age of Tinder, OkCupid, and Zoosk, a show about the trials and tribulations of online dating was long overdue. Thanks to YouTube channel BLACK&SEXY.TV productions, we finally have it in the popular webseries Hello Cupid.

The show follows roommates Whitney (Ashley Blaine Featherson) and Robyn (Hayley Marie Norman), best friends with dating woes. Whitney is the intellectual friend who will let you know when you’re doing too much—like when she tells Robyn her Facebook profile picture should probably include her face. Robyn is the funny, sassy friend who will keep it real with you and call you out for “throwing shade.” In other words, they’re the kind of friends you want to keep around and chill with.

The show begins with Whitney working on her Hello Cupid (their version of OkCupid) profile. Dealing with messages from what Robyn calls the “Flavor Flavs and Bobbie Browns of the world,” Whitney is just about over it. She’s tired of being single, but she’s also starting to wonder if wanting a man who “gets his hair cut twice a week, has his own bank account, and doesn’t like Tyler Perry movies” is asking too much. Believe me, girl, we’ve been there.

In steps Robyn with some real advice. She suggests Whitney change her profile, specifically her “About Me” section, which just isn’t sexy enough. Whitney, however, doesn’t think her information is the problem, and instead decides to try something else. After replacing Whitney’s photo with a picture of Robyn, the girls decide to do an experiment: Is it really the “About Me” section that needs to be altered, or will a sexier photo be enough?

By the next morning, Whitney’s “Looking4Love” profile has gone from having only three messages to about 143. Both ladies are excited by this turn of events—and Whitney proves she’s right that the picture is the only thing that matters. I guess in the game of love, bronze is still better than brains? Shame.

After fighting over who’ll get to talk to all these men and which ones to talk to (Robyn argues that Whitney has poor taste), Whitney claims it’s all just fun and games anyway, so who cares? Putting aside her “no kids rule,” she decides to message “ProudDad.” I get the feeling that’s going to come back and bite her later.

Until then, Whitney claims the only reason they’re getting so many more messages is because Robyn is light-skinned. This leads to the age-old dark-skin-versus-light-skin debate, which ends in Robyn leaving, fed up with Whitney’s nonsense. Although Whitney claims she’s done with the site and doesn’t want to mess with these guys’ feelings, she decides to look at the site again … where she of course has a message from ProudDad waiting for her. Despite telling Robyn she was over it, Whitney begins a conversation with him, then promises to continue the conversation when he returns. Yeah, this probably won’t end well.
