Description

Technology has a serious influence on the way dating and romance work. It has changed the way we approach people and the rules of courtship. With technology came the development of computers, laptops and the Internet; in turn this brought about online dating and long-distance relationships. Studies suggest that those who actively search for a potential partner through the use of speed dating, online dating or other forms of technology are making a serious intent to find their 'other half'. A study found that 17 percent of 7,000 recently married couples have met online. Many experts and commentators worry that technology will supplant relationships. Through the episode we explore how the rules of romance have changed and will technology truly displace person-to-person contact in the future.
