How I Hacked Online Dating

Amy Webb shines an intelligent and hilarious light onto the process of online dating, a process through which more and more people are finding both short and long-term romantic partners. Taking us through her elaborate and incredibly well thought out strategy for marketing herself online to a targeted pool of men, she reinforces to the viewer the ultimate importance of developing ones own specific set of standards and sticking with your guns: no matter how many times your grandmother admonishes you for being “too picky.” In the end, she found her “jewish prince charming” and is now happily married with a young daughter. However, even those looking for more causal relationships should still find this talk incredibly fun and informative. After all, just because something is “casual” doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be quality nor does it mean it has to stay casual forever.

The Rise of Dating App Fatigue

Since the dawn of time dating has been a challenge and often times one wonders how so many people ended up with partners in the pre internet age. Online dating gives us the illusion of endless options and the idea that we are more likely to find “the one.” In the end we swipe, go on dates, do more swiping, and go on more dates in a seemingly endless search for something better. The process feels efficient (it’s a numbers game right?) but the opposite is probably truer. Relationships take time and investment, which directly counters the online dating model, “little effort on lots of people rather than lots of effort on few.” If you’re dating, our advice is to read this article, take a deep breathe, slow down, and spend time with people rather than running yourself ragged in the dating race.
