Anyone who knows me (or reads my blog regularly) knows how much I absolutely love The Vampire Diaries. Well, the actress who plays Caroline (Candice Accola) is this season’s main character on a new show called “Dating Rules from My Future Self.”
Dating Rules is a web series created by Alloy Entertainment (the same creators of great things like Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, etc…). There are two “seasons” of the show, which is comprised of 10-ish minute episodes. I’ve officially watched all of them and am quite anxious for new ones to come out.
The premise is pretty funny — the main character of each season communicates via text and FaceTime with an older version of herself. Grown up versions of the characters provide advice about how to navigate the crazy world of dating.
The first season, the main character was actress Shiri Appleby, who a few people may recognize from the CW show Life Unexpected (another show I loved, that unfortunately met its demise after only 2 seasons).
So far, season 2 has been pretty funny with Candice as the main character. From her “margarita maker” (a blender) named José, to her problematic addiction to Cheetos, Candice’s character Chloe is simply hilarious.
Overall, Dating Rules from My Future Self definitely has some great humor written into it, particularly because they include some of the comical aspects of living life in the modern age where having “The Jimmy Song” posted on your Facebook wall is thought to be the most humiliating thing that could happen to a 20-something!
