Following the introduction of Tinder in 2012, we’ve been living in the “on to the next one” paradigm, ending relationships at the first sign of misunderstanding. And the impact of the swipe culture stretches far beyond that. Instead of actually meeting people offline, talking to each other, and discussing issues face to face, we lean in the comfort of emoji, likes, and instant messaging.
In addition to a significant communication breakdown, dating apps have become a fertile ground for harassment and cyberbullying. For example, approximately 60% of women who use dating applications claim to be receiving sexually explicit images
they haven’t asked for. Meanwhile, the numbers of dating app users who have been called an offensive name or threatened with physical violence stand at 35% and 10%

to adopt a more meaningful approach to dating while fostering a safer, more respectful online environment?
