This year at the TNT Travel Show sponsored by, London’s biggest FREE travel exhibition, we’re doing like a virgin and running for the very first time a Desperately Seeking a Travel Date event!

We know that readers of the TNT Desperately Seeking forum and users of TNT Dating are up for it – so here’s your chance to flaunt it, have a bit of fun, and win yourself some goodies!

Now, we’re looking for eight (four men, four women) fun-loving, out and proud singletons who are prepared to play a bit of blind dating in front of a live audience. One guy will grill three ladies vying for the chance to win a weekend away with him, then swap positions and do it vice versa, girl grills three eligible bachelors.

At the end we’ll have two winning couples who will take off with two nights’ accommodation at Generator Hostels’ sites (Dublin, Copenhagen, London, Berlin) including breakfast and one romantic dinner. They can choose to bunk with each other – or not! Prize also includes activities to do together.

And don’t worry, there will also be fantastic consolation prizes to those tear-streaked singles who remain dateless – we’ve got Medieval Banquet certificates for 2nd prize and TNT bumper gift packs for third. Dry your eyes – everyone wins!

If you’re interested in entering, what we need you to do is to submit a short bio including your name and email address plus your idea of a dream romantic weekend away. Dream up a convincing red letter, post it at the Desperately Seeking a Travel Date forum or on our Facebook Page – we’ll collate all the entries and choose eight singles to play the Desperately Seeking a Travel Date game.
