  • Dating in the Digital Age

    June 25, 2019
    Time: 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
    Community College of Philadelphia
    1700 Spring Garden Street
    Philadelphia, PA 19130

    Dating is historically tricky! Between oppressively false pressures placed upon us by a sometimes normative society to complex familial structures, young people have a lot to work with when it comes to dating! Add to that the increasingly detached modes of interacting with one another. From Tinder to Grindr and everything in-between folks are relying on apps to mediate their amorous interactions. We will talk about online safety, disclosure, self-esteem, how to avoid stigmatizing language when creating a profile, and how to navigate relationships in the 21st Century Digital Age.
