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."
