For Your Heart 

Love has become increasingly hard to find, and keep, in today’s world. The technology designed to connect us has created an unintended disconnect. Dating apps and social media augment our sense of separation from others, and more importantly, ourselves. This separation has given birth to ghosting, breadcrumbing, cat fishing, and a multitude of new terms for the bad behavior exhibited in our current world of dating and mating. 

Our personal lives have become a digital press release designed to foster an image of success and happiness. Social media skews our perception of self-worth, as we compare our day-to-day lives against the aggrandizement of ‘Instafamous Incredibles.’ 

How can we feel good about ourselves during today’s digital environment? And, how do we establish (and maintain) a healthy relationship with someone else? What’s the protocol, and what are the rules? Are there rules? 

These are the questions we’ll be answering in this interactive discussion on love, dating, partnership, and personal identity in the digital age. Whether you’re single, dating, or partnered, you’re encouraged to bring your questions and thoughts to this lively presentation. 

Topic areas: 

  • Single by choice—but pressured to be dating by friends and family? 
  • Single and looking— Is there anyone good out there? 
  • Partnership— keeping the love alive in an age of micro-cheating and shifting mores 
  • Online dating— the necessary vehicle everyone hates, but needs
