It's already time for the second annual Blinded by Love! 

Not familiar? Four girls and four guys were submitted and are brave enough to let you, the reader, decide who they will go on a blind date with. 

605 will follow them on their date and report how it went for the February cover story. Will they find love? Will they find a friend? Will they find them completely annoying?
