Catch da Flava Radio - Dating Apps
For this edition of Health Talks Radio, host Travis talks to our youth panel about dating apps and the new age of dating in a changing social climate. Travis talks about how dating has changed with the use of social media apps like Instagram and Snapchat and explores the different stereotypes people may have when it comes to relationships. Diamond shares about her own experience, citing how uninterested she is in creating relationships as she observes how much drama people create for themselves, which she admits to openly enjoy witnessing but not participating in. Beverly shares these feelings but also talks about how people will reach out to her unwelcomed and how it bothers her. She also emphasizes the significance of people waiting for the right relationship instead of jumping from one person to the next, as she observes in youth.
Travis also explores how different age ranges may experience relationships and thus react and respond to relationships in different ways. He asks the panel whether they believe that younger people want “the whole package” which is the idea of having a best friend, soulmate, and lover all in one. Judy shares that maybe in different ages we want different things. For youth, they may not necessary want a soulmate, best friend and lover all in one because they are not thinking that far ahead. They aren’t necessarily searching for a life partner, as it is likely they still don’t even know what to do with their lives. But that may be the case when they are older and think about their futures.
We would like to thank our panelists Beverly, Diamond, and Judy for being on the show to talk about the new climate of relationships with social media and how it redefines what relationship dynamics are.
