Do dating apps encourage less committed relationships?
Temptation is everywhere... everything is so accessible.
– Rebecca Jane
Candace Bushnell, the writer behind Carrie Bradshaw's romantic misadventures in Sex and the City, blames the surge in online dating tools such as Tinder for people - particularly men - being less committed to relationships than they once were. Candace is stumped by the rise of dating apps and websites, which she claims means people are 'always looking for a bigger and better deal'.
Debating the issue today we have Rebecca Jane, who runs a female only private detective agency and who agrees fully with Candace saying "we don't even date anymore - we are driven by image". On the other side, Eden Blackman - online dating expert and founder of Would Like To Meet - disagrees saying, "her view is extreme, and people have cheated for centuries - dating apps are just another platform."
