Presenter: Petra Nagel
Journalist & TV Host at DR3
Petra is, according to herself, no dating expert. And before she went out into the world hosting the DR3 program Petra Dates The World, she was perhaps more the opposite. But having been dating men across the globe, she has come closer to the truth about why so many people find it extremely difficult to go on dates.
But according to Petra, that is exactly where the problem lies: "We think it's hard to date. This is exactly what we should try to change! It should be nice, easy and great to meet new people who may or may not be potential partners. Luckily, you have a phone at your fingertips that can help you."
Film: The Mobile Love Industry
Host: Karley Sciortino
Director: Adri Murguia
In this episode of Love Industries, we will look at the ways in which mobile apps have become an essential part of our search for the next hook-up, true love and everything in between.
The smartphone has become the crucial link in modern relationships. It facilitates far more connections than real-world interaction ever allowed – from dating app geniuses who use data and game theory to hack the system, to the darker side of digital love, where app addiction runs rampant and users find themselves endlessly swiping in an empty search for more.
Karley Sciortino will take on the task of determining where the human search for love is headed in the 21st century. She meets with the brains behind these dating apps and try each of the most promising apps out, using her own love life as a testing ground.
