    Question

    All the lonely people ...
    Where do they all come from



    Love and sex in the internet age

    DW Documentary


    "The singles market is big and online dating businesses are booming. Digitalization seems to make finding the perfect mate simple. All it takes is a pair of clicks and you're in the "dating zone."

    More than 20 million people live as singles in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
    Millions of them today use dating platforms, particularly apps. "That we kicked off a revolution - we certainly didn't expect that. Everything we do is aimed at directly linking people to each other. Today, no one has to be in a certain place in order to get acquainted," says Whitney Wolfe, about the most successful international dating app, Tinder. Wolfe is now the CEO of the dating app Bumble. The intuitive selection of a photo on a smartphone and access to others with similar interests (the famous "match") is a popular matchmaking principle today.

    The big online dating services, on the other hand, use tests and algorithms to allegedly decide who's right for whom. The process is painstaking and mysterious. The formula that underpins German dating site Parship was developed by psychologist Hugo Schmale, who's now 87. Yet even he doesn't believe in love for life: "The boys and girls of tomorrow are all going to live to be 90. If they first meet each other at fifteen, then that's a strange idea, that they would remain in the same relationship from fifteen to 90. It's normal that people change and you need the chance to be able to split up again, too." Historian Moira Weigel says dating has long shared much with the world of work, and not just in the Internet age. Self-promotion and self-improvement aren't exclusive to the smartphone era. Sociologist Eva Illouz, however, warns that capitalism has appropriated love itself. This documentary takes the viewer into the world of online dating and tries to discover how courtship has changed in the digital age.

    Should I comment?

    I spoke with a therapist that was somewhat familiar with electronic dating. She remarked in a way that I could identify with very easily:

    "The odds of finding a weirdo is extremely high". But then I asked myself this question (actually someone else did...what a smartass he was) What does that say about oneself?

    eHarmony is the best site that I ever tried. Unfortunately my soul mate lived on the other side of the country...and that was that.

    Exploring New York City's RICHEST Neighborhood

    Inside New York City's MOST DANGEROUS HOOD - South Bronx

    Peter Santenello



    My goal in this video was to show a specific angle of New York City. But NYC has so many different sides! Whether that be the South Bronx, Jackson Heights, the Hasidic Jewish world, an old school NYC local in Manhattan, etc. If you liked this and want to see completely different stories in the same city check out my full New York City Playlist here that I'll be adding to in the next couple of weeks: https://bit.ly/2TmThlI


    In regards to the South Bronx, I researched the most dangerous neighborhoods in NYC by homicides. Mott Haven has some of the highest homicide rates so that's why I chose it. But as a non-local, it's hard to know what exact place is the most dangerous. Overall my goal was to show a human side to a place that outsiders might perceive negatively. I've done these "most dangerous hood" videos in Karachi, Pakistan, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and have ended up with the same results: cool interaction and warm people. Actually, it's in these neighborhoods where it's easier to connect with people than the wealthier places. Despite the problems in the South Bronx, there is a lot of soul and warmth. I enjoyed my time there, met great people, and I took in the vibrant culture pulsating through the streets. Fricking amazing food there too!
