Daters are looking for deeper connections

Aug 15, 2020

Daters are looking for deeper connections according to an article published yesterday for Channel 3000 and written by Jamie Perez on 4/14/20.
“With users now relying on digital dates, Brooke Wilczewski, a University of Wisconsin– Madison student and the campus director for Bumble, says this may actually be a good thing for those looking for meaningful relationships.

“This is really, really incredible for dating because what we’ve seen in hookup culture and what some of the frustration has been is there doesn’t seem to be real a need for these truly emotionally intimate connections rather than just physically intimate.”
Wilczewski said being forced into long-term digital dates can push our minds to get to know someone and connect on an emotional basis first rather than connect after physical intimacy has already happened.

“Social distancing can almost provide people with the opportunity to remove their BS filter and be like, ‘I’m just going to be me and if someone likes me that’s fine. If someone doesn’t like me that’s fine. I can always swipe and go on to the next’,”

Wilczewski said. “I think that that almost provides an increased opportunity for people to truly represent themselves in the way that they want to be seen on these dating apps because they actually have nothing to lose.” Whether dating from home will continue as a trend past quarantine, we will just have to wait and see.”
