2020 will be the year that dating was forever changed. During a year of unparalleled political, economic and social change, singles now want more from dating including a desire for a relationship over casual dating; more meaningful conversations, and more honesty and transparency during a date. In this session, renowned anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher and evolutionary biologist Dr. Justin R. Garcia, will discuss 10 years of dating data and trends found from the nation's largest and most comprehensive annual scientific study, Singles In America, including how the global pandemic, the rise of video dating, and 2020 election transformed singles' approach to dating, sex, and love.
