Synopsis: While You Were Dating On Hallmark Channel
The exes just might have a chance at love the second time around in Hallmark Channel’s new flick While You Were Dating. Nick Stendahl was once crazy in love with Julia Minterman many years ago. They ended up getting married but ultimately divorced after long separations due to Julia’s job put their marriage on the rocks.
It’s been 16 years, and now both Julia and Nick have moved on and are looking for love. Nick takes to a dating site to find love before the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday. At the same time, Julia is also thinking about romance and decides to set up a profile on a popular site.
Nick and Julia strike gold when they both meet two very promising love prospects. What they don’t know is that they have unwittingly set up a blind date with each other. This fact is revealed after they meet at a charming little restaurant looking for their dates, but instead, they find each other.

They both think the dating flub is hilarious and decide to continue on their date by catching up on old times. Later, they come up with the idea to set each other up on dates with their friends. Nick starts to date Julia’s best friend, Leslie. But that doesn’t work out. Julia also accepts an invitation form Nick’s real estate broker. But that fizzles out.
Soon it becomes obvious that they are both still stuck on each other. When they broke up more than a decade earlier, it was only due to the long separations, not because the love wasn’t there. Now, it is blatantly apparent that what they sought in other people is what they already have between them.

Actor William Baldwin (via Hallmark Channel)
“While most known for his iconic lead performances in Internal Affairs, The Squid and the Whale, Flatliners and Backdraft, Baldwin has appeared in dozens of feature films, including Forgetting Sarah Marshall. On the television side, Billy was a series regular on ‘Dirty Sexy Money,’ and recurring arcs include ‘Parenthood,’ ‘Gossip Girl,’ ‘Hawaii Five-0,’ ‘Copper’ and ‘Hot In Cleveland.'”
While You Were Dating (Second Time Around) was filmed in Canada. The executive producers are listed as Scott W. Anderson and Howard Braunstein.
According to TV Weekly, Hallmark Channel’s While You Were Dating airs this Sunday, February 12, at 9/8 p.m. Central. The name While You Were Dating easily rolls off of the tongue since the title is a reminder of the 1995 movie While You Were Sleeping, starring Sandra Bullock. Hallmark Channel has one more movie airing this weekend: A Dash Of Love.
