In this episode of The GDI Podcast, we’re delighted to be joined by Sybil Shiddel, country manager for India for Gleeden, the extra-marital dating platform.

Within this podcast, Luke Smith, editor of Global Dating Insights, and Sybil discuss the rise in the trend for extra-marital dating, the natural curiosity and polyamory of humans, and the controversy surrounding extra-marital affairs.

Luke and Sybil also discuss the changing acceptance of ‘new love’ in modern dating, including extra-marital affairs, polyamory, and open relationships. They also discuss the effect that COVID-19 has had on this trend, and the next steps for Gleeden.
