How Douchebags Ruined Dating

Online dating has become the #1 most common way that people meet their romantic partners. Yet the typical online dating experience is - for most people - painful. Women get too many spammy messages ("hey sexy" is a classic) and tune out. Meanwhile, nice guys can't get through the noise.

This presentation is an exploration of the ways that douchebags have ruined online dating for the rest of us - and what we can do about it! We'll conclude with Q&A from the audience & tips from Elissa on how to have an awesome experience meeting people online.
