There's a new show on Bravo that promises to have you cringing from awkward kisses, and cowering at the threat of just how many times they could possibly fit the phrase "friend zone" into one hour — Friends To Lovers? The reality series seems to be trying to capitalize on the fun to be had in wishing two friends on a TV show would realize they're perfect for each other and fall in L-U-V.

But whereas we'd spent seasons with Sam and Diane or Nick and Jess before they made their move toward romance, we don't know these actual human strangers at all.

If reading about these couples or watching Monday night's special preview get you hooked, don't worry. There will be plenty more once Friends To Lovers? premieres on Monday, Jan. 12 at 10 p.m.
