Episode 92 – Relationship Status: Dating in the Digital Age

Nadir Pop and Peter continue their focus on relationships, this time from a different perspective, from those who are looking for a partner.

A bit of background before we get to the episode. Nadir Pop and Peter Pop met their partners and got married much before the digital wave hit India. They didn’t even have a Shaadi.com profile.

In recent years, digital media has played an important role in dating in India especially with the rise of apps. This has completely changed the experience of dating and it’s unsaid rules.

The Pop duo are joined by journalist Samreen Tungekar and digital marketer Aditya Rao to discuss this change and also their experiences using dating apps and more.

Highlights from the conversation

  • The adoption of digital apps for dating in recent years.
  • The different dating apps and experiences on them
  • Ghosting, Orbiting and other phenomena online
  • The impact of the pandemic on online dating
  • Rules and guidelines while using dating apps
