Will Generation Y ever tie the knot?

Because love knows no artificial, age-based, media-enforced barriers. Oct 6, I am Generation Y. Do not millennial me unless you'd like a kick in the teeth. I get that we're ambiguous.

Professor Dunbar says that online dating can lead to mismatched pairings, where the relationship is based on idealisation instead of reality. It could be that those looking for love online are more committed to the prospect of a long-term relationship. Others argue that online dating uses sophisticated algorithms and questionnaires to match people with perfectly suited partners.

Or perhaps the sheer volume of choice online allows for more pairings.

The downside of that large pool though, says Professor Dunbar, is that Generation Y can see the variety of choice available online and become more dissatisfied in their existing relationship. So, online dating could help Generation Y walk down the aisle. But it remains to be seen whether millennials will find true and lasting love. Find your perfect match.

When we talk about old fashioned times, we're talking about a time when women in particular did not have a lot of choice in meeting partners. Although there are some who feel nostalgic for the pre-Tinder dating scene, Iselin reckons women have never had it better; and she doesn't see us ever going back. But when we talk about old-fashioned times, we're talking about a time when women in particular did not have a lot of choice in meeting partners.

The same goes for people who may be otherwise constrained from exploring their sexuality 'the old-fashioned way', says Senthorun Raj, Grindr enthusiast and academic in law and gender studies. What's more, they have the ability to make connections "with people who we would never encounter in the places or circles we normally frequent," he adds.

Of course, it's not all rainbows, love-hearts and wink emojis for women, racial minorities or LGBT people. Prejudice and harassment is a real issue — but Raj says it would be a mistake to suggest apps like Grindr and Tinder have unleashed it. Nguyen says rape threats and racist, sexist comments are things she's personally had to deal with just as much offline as on dating apps and social media.
