Ayesha Vardag today featured on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss relationships in the age of online dating.
In the wake of the announcement from the CEO of eharmony, that only 1 in 20 marriages of couples who met on the dating website result in divorce, the radio programme discussed whether or not relationships were more disposable in the online dating era.
Ayesha was concerned that the chemistry between people would be lost if they encountered each other through a flat screen:
“All the myriad little points of connection people have, the little triggers, the deeper things… all of that is screened out in online dating.”
However in spite of Ayesha’s less than auspicious experience with eharmony as a singleton, she held that “anything that fosters and increases human connection is a really good thing”.
