Dan Healy is a Managing Director at FTI Consulting, a global business advisory firm that helps companies understand more about their industry and assist their growth with a variety of professional services.
He has been working closely with RealMe, the sponsors of The GDI Podcast, on a number of different studies. The most recent research investigated how online dating in the US is changing alongside the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this episode we look at dating in the ‘new normal’, how different personality traits are coping with virtual dating and whether or not these trends are here to stay.
Dan explains that dating apps have become much more ‘sticky’, meaning they are getting better at retaining their users. He also notes that singles are being less picky when it comes to deciding which way to swipe, in order to connect with more matches and fight off the feeling of loneliness.
