This short clip gets a deep message across in a humorous way. I really like how modern this video is and how people know about it and can relate. The video is about a woman and a man on tinder and how they approach it, they end up matching on Tinder and follow through with drinks at a bar. She goes home with him and thats the end of that, never speaking again.

This article covers major transitions within the dating world and the term “Hook up culture”. I find the following quote to capture the idea, “Hookup culture, which has been percolating for about a hundred years, has collided with dating apps, which have acted like a wayward meteor on the now dinosaur-like rituals of courtship. “There have been two major transitions” in heterosexual mating “in the last four million years,” he says. “The first was around 10,000 to 15,000 years ago, in the agricultural revolution, when we became less migratory and more settled,” leading to the establishment of marriage as a cultural contract. “And the second major transition is with the rise of the Internet.”

I like this article because it gives a good argument on dating as a game as opposed to a way to a search for a soulmate. This quote is a good reflection of the article, “Monogamous courtship has been replaced with carefree hook ups. Some men are actively choosing a track of perpetual casual dating because it is hassle-free… The interface actively encourages multiple matches, made with no information about the other person except for their photo and age. The arbitrary nature of Tinder is like a game, not like a serious search for emotional intimacy”

The article discusses the dating mobile application Tinder. Topics include Tinder’s minimalist image-based interface which can connect individuals to people who share similar friends on the social networking service Facebook, chief executive officer Sean Rad’s plans to launch a subscription premium version of the app, and included are a lot of statistical facts about Tinder.

This article provides a comparison between dating in 2016 and dating before today. It gives good examples such as then, men would advertise on newspapers to find a partner and now, their is online dating which essentially is people advertising themselves to find a partner.
