When Love Is Blind contestant Rory Newbrough first stepped into one of those Netflix reality TV series’ soundproof pods to speed-date 15 girls he could not see, he had been skeptical that he could find love this manner –he heard Danielle Drouin’s voice.
“Danielle was the first pod that I went into, and I felt it the moment I walked in,” he informs Women’s Health.
“She was my first choice the entire time.”
By day three, Rory felt”a lot more gravitas” to the test. By day six, he knew he needed to propose to Danielle. “We used to talk to 19 or 20 hours a day,” he says.
“I started to realize there were parts of my–walls I set up–and I didn’t even know they had been there. I was known for these, and they were just left open. I had been yelling the whole time.”
But Rory also says he”certainly fell in love”
After Rory and Danielle got engaged–with a wall between them they finally got to meet. “I collapsed when I saw her,” he remembers.
Love Is Blind showed small seconds of their romance.
If you’ve watched the first couple of episodes of the reality dating series, you might be asking yourself why you didn’t see any of this play out on screen–or, for that matter, just how TF it’s potential for numerous couples to fall in love and become engaged in 10 short days without ever seeing each other in person.
