INSIDEHOOOK - Mar 18 - In short, in the age of COVID-19, all dating is online dating. From the earliest days of the pandemic, people have flocked to dating apps like never before. Dr. Jess Carbino, a former expert for both Tinder and Bumble, talks about what we can expect from dating apps post-pandemic. According to Carbino, the pandemic may have converted the last of the dating app skeptics, and the popularity of the video date represents one of the most significant changes to dating app culture since the start of the pandemic. Carbino doesn't see online dating weathering any significant post-COVID comedown. According to Carbino, so-called "dating app fatigue" has only ever been a veil for more generalized dating frustration, the same kind that has plagued daters for generations. "Rather than saying, 'I'm very tired of dating right now,' they say, 'I'm very tired of online dating,' because that's how they're meeting people," says Carbino.
