Global streaming giant Netflix is dipping its toes into the dating world with Dating Around, its first original dating show, dropping on Valentine’s Day.

The 6 x 30-minute docuseries (pictured) will follow one single person every episode as they go on five separate dates looking for a good time and a meaningful connection. By episode’s end, viewers will find out if any of the pairings merit a second date.

Netflix calls Dating Around “an honest and compelling look at the real world of dating.”

The series is produced by Sydney-headquartered Eureka Productions and executive produced by Eureka’s Chris Culvenor and Paul Franklin, and The Bachelor/Bachelorette EP Alycia Rossiter.

Dating Around streams globally on Netflix Feb. 14.
