Let's face it. If you're single and play on the internet, one eye is always wandering, catching glimpses of that cute someone behind that witty tweet. Despite the unimaginable frequency of this experience, who knows what to do about it? Our Ignite talk answers this question. We explore the opportunity digital culture presents to herald a new way for a generation to date and find love, by going online to get offline. This talk takes a fun snap-shot-style tour of the past 60 years - from Leave It To Beaver gender roles and chaperoned dates, through The Pill induced sexual revolution and Feminist inspired bra burnings, up to our contemporary confusion about the ways of dating, love, and marriage, maybe....we're talking Eat, Pray, Love fantasies and Facebook hook-ups.
