(KSL News) With Valentine's Day just about a week away, it's a natural time to think of romance. We decided to examine the realities and myths surrounding blind dates.

For many Utah singles, blind dates are seen as a necessary evil, but are they really that bad? Our Coco Warner found a couple of singles in South Jordan willing to examine that question.

Kasey Kershaw is 31 years old and works in real estate. Stacy Barton is 24 years old and works as a nurse.

Stacy and Kasey met under some admittedly awkward circumstances this morning, with our Coco Warner and a television camera showing up at 6:30 in the morning. But they seemed to hit it off, despite the bad reputation these mystery meetings have.

The couple even agreed on how to act on a blind date.

Stacy Barton, blind date bachelorette: "Just keep it casual, so you can be yourself."

Kasey Kershaw, blind date bachelor: "Just being as real as you can. If they don't like who you are, they don't like who you are. Just be who you are and have a good time."

We sent them to Market Street Grill for breakfast this morning.

We'll see if they follow their own advice. Tomorrow on Eyewitness News Today we'll hear from both Stacy and Kasey, separately. You can see how things went, what they learned (if anything) and if a second date is in order.
