Married At First Sight (MAFS) is back in full swing for another year of drama and we could not be more excited. Since we’re following the lives of 20 random people as they partake in a social-science experiment, we thought we’d dissect some facts on a daily basis.
Introducing, MAFS lessons: the only class you’ll actually find interesting. Today’s lesson is all about how to meet new people. From episode one, we have detected six rules that one must follow in order to avoid embarrassment. They are as follows.
Listen to us break down all the lessons from episode one of MAFS on It’s Been A Big Day For… below:
1. Don’t Rock Up Too Early
Fashionably late is still in fashion and we definitely recommend it. Don’t find yourself wandering the vast empty halls of random houses alone, show up a little late, so you don’t end up talking to yourself. It’s a bit random, especially with all the MAFS cameras following you.
2. Show Interest In The Other Person
Whether it’s asking others about their cultural heritage or their job, it’s always nice to shine the spotlight on someone else for a change. The people you’re talking to will feel so listened to and valued. Please, for the love of God, do not make it all about yourself. That’s just a recipe for disaster. We all know what happened to Ines… A MAFS icon!
3. Don’t Shit In Front Of New People
Regardless of how nervous you are, shitting yourself won’t help you. Don’t shit. Don’t even think about shitting because you’ll end up talking about it and you’ll have to actually go and do it. Thinking about shitting is the thought equivalent of drinking Metamucil and prune juice. Although, we can’t deny, a shitting accident would make a great MAFS plot.
4. Talk About Food
Instead of thinking about food leaving your body, focus on its entrance! Everybody loves food. Usually, there is finger food around, so why not use it as a catalyst for conversation. Who knows what kind of cuisine-based chats may arise.
5. Ask About Their Star Sign
You have to know whether or not you’re compatible with someone. Some call it an outdated pseudo-science, some live by it, but what you can’t deny is that astrology somehow seems more legit than the tactics used in MAFS. Also after finding out one’s star sign, you get to fabricate an entire personality that’s all in your head based off of a simple hello!
6. Remember To Act In A Socially Acceptable Way
This one is pretty simple; it’s all about being yourself and being presentable. All you need to do is act normal, which means; wearing the correct amount of deodorant, resisting the urge to press random buttons in a limousine, don’t pretend to be a sailor, don’t think about a totally random thing in front of your new MAFS husband and be upfront about sticking to monogamy.
7. Say Yes To A Cuddle!
It’s important to cuddle for weather-reasons and weather reasons, only. Also, if they’re not down to cuddle, yes, you should probably read into it.
Catch you back tomorrow for another MAFS lesson!
