From Virtual Reality to DNA Matching
The dating world goes beyond digital trends. This 2019, you’ll find the new dating trends fun and exciting. What may have been dismissed as amusing science fiction is now a feature in some of the more creative dating apps. Singles focus on finding love or a long-term relationship online now more than ever. While the traditional dinner date and the age of swiping right will always take a backseat when it comes to finding true love, women are more empowered this 2019.
This trend started in 2014 when Bumble was introduced that changed the gender norms of traditional dating. It was founded by Whitney Wolfe, who was also a co-founder of Tinder. The Bumble app instantaneously became popular which increased $28K for the Planned Parenthood via Instagram last October 2016. It was also awarded as the Dating App Winner by the US Dating Awards or USDA in 2016. Surprisingly, it knocks out the major game players such as Tinder and Zoosk.
Mindfulness and kindness in relationships also play a crucial role in 2019. People will be more expressive about their feelings and open to trying couples therapy. Saying “no” is more positively positioned and dating etiquette is respected.
The new dating scene is now more adventurous which equates to more fun and excitement. Singles are given the opportunity to date someone new and try something new. Face recognition is on the rise, allowing users to find their potential matches who are celebrity look-alikes. You might just get to date Beyonce doppelganger!
Behavior-based matching will be enhanced in 2019. Instead of answering questionnaires and automated romantic matchmaking algorithms, behavioral tracking will be given special attention. Further research will be conducted, interpreting live reactions, like facial recognition, heart rate, and even your brain’s neural signals.
DNA Matching and Virtual Reality dating
PopSugar says that if you’re single, you should be aware of the new dating trends. The good news is that you can take online dating at the next level through DNA matching and VR dating. Surprisingly, genetic-based dating sites are now rising which crack conventional matchmaking systems. It’s simply taking a cheek swab test to find your bio-compatible match. According to studies, genetic testing can spell true love and potential matches can lead to long-term relationships, less infidelity, healthier children, and enhanced sexual chemistry.

With VR dating, it will open up a whole new world of global dating pool of singles, meeting and redefining long distance relationships. Everybody will experience virtual reality and meet people anywhere in the world with the advancement of wearable technology.
Dating apps play a vital role in reasserting the value of physical location. According to Rachel Katz, who studied the dating app, Tinder, for her master’s degree, “Once, most people married people who lived within four miles of them. Then we had the internet, and all these infinite possibilities for soulmates across the world; it didn’t matter where they were.”
VR dating is the new tech of online dating in the future. Just imagine being able to scan people with your smartphone in a nightclub and check their dating profiles. At the moment, a Paris-based app called “happn” analyzes where you’ve been during the day, showing you people who passed within 250 meters of you. Claire Certain, the head of “happn” says that these are the individuals you can meet in real life. In the near future, VR will be a most-sought feature and distance won’t be an issue anymore.
