In this segment, our host and reporter, Cas, explores the app dating world as an outsider. Today’s dating market is an intimidating place – especially for those of us who have missed out on the recent dating app boom. It’s enough to make you never want to be single again…We speak with Kayla and John-Michael about their perspectives, as people whose relationships are older than today’s premier dating app, Tinder. (Full disclosure: Kayla is Cas’s romantic partner). We also speak with two men in their twenties, Mark and Josh, who have been using dating apps in the past few years. Both say that the apps were fun at first, but have since lost some of their luster. What started out as an exciting way to meet new people has become, at best, routine, and at worst, alienating. While apps might work for some singles, they’re still an unattractive reality for many in today’s dating world.

Kayla
Kayla, Cas’s girlfriend of six years, finds the idea of the quick functionality of dating apps superficial.
John-Michael

Mark
Mark has been using apps for just over a year, and is already sick of them.
Josh
Josh is nostalgic for dating in the pre-app era.
