Blurry People is perhaps best summarized as a combination of ChatRoulette and a dating site.

On Blurry People, you engage in random video chats with people like you would in ChatRoulette. The significant difference here is that both video portraits start out blurred and sharpen over time as - or if - your conversation goes on.
To increase the likelihood of a good match the next time, you are able to rate your chat partner with tags like "too grumpy", "too ugly", and "too dumb". This way, the worst people are filtered away, and the mechanisms to game are gone, leaving you to form relationships with other people under less superficial circumstances.
Or as the guys behind Blurry People say it: strangers you might actually like.
