Modern Dating: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Dating today is totally different than it was several years ago. The playing field to meet “potentials” has shifted from offline at the bar to online, using an apps such as Tinder, Happn or Inner Circle. It seems like nothing can stop the growth of these apps and websites, each with a slightly different vision on how to find the best match. Online dating has made finding a partner more accessible and many have already found the love of their life using these new media. However, there are also drawbacks such as its addictive nature and shameless glorification of outer beauty. This raises questions: Why do people take refuge in this new way of dating? Is this change for the better? Can you find true love using apps and websites?

We will discuss this with Marco van der Woude. He is founder of Breeze, a new dating app which tries to distinguish itself by focusing on offline meeting. Other speaker to be announced!

This talk is free of charge. Afterwards, there will be drinks at cafe Hemingway!
