    In this episode we are talking about the psychology of online dating with Cyber psychologist Dr Nicola Fox Hamilton.

    Nicola is a lecturer in applied psychology and cyberpsychology in the Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT). Her research focuses on communication through technology, particularly in the areas of online dating and relationships, and attraction. She is currently researching how the COVID pandemic impacted online dating.

    She talks us through the biases that we bring to encounters in cyberspace and why people can behave differently in a virtual setting than in real life. Plus the different approaches that men and women take to swiping and screening potential partners which might explain those frustrations when people behave in ways we don’t expect.

    Nicola is so knowledgeable and engaging, we loved talking to her and hope you like the episode.
