LTR - July 5 - Jon Birger, author of Make Your Move and Date-onomics, believes that online dating falls short of its lofty initial promises. He suggests that modern daters have lost the foundations of traditional courtship and relationship building in the algorithm-driven digital dating ecosystem. In his books, Birger cites research from multiple sources that demonstrates the increased efficacy of dating people within one's work and social circles. The persistent issues with online dating, such as dishonest profiles and safety risks, contribute to an unsatisfactory experience for users. This is particularly true for female users. Jon Birger believes that online dating services can learn from the past to guide the future. He shares his insights and several inspiring stories in the latest video in the LTR Conference series.
