Often we become so caught up in our relationships that we lose ourselves in the wants and needs of other people. Once we find true love and partnership these things become a mutual dynamic of the relationship that is give and take. But until that time we are in a dance, a competition of sorts with our suitors and ourselves to get it right.

Yet they wonder why they are unsuccessful in their relationships or not married.

This latest scenario explores how a range of exponentially advancing technologies such as AI and big data could transform the world of dating. The next five years will see AI take the possibilities for dating to a new level. Dating apps could tap into information on our lives from across the web and social media, to enhance our composed profile.

Algorithmic analysis of our health, attitudes, behaviours — on and off-line — combined with our communication styles, interests and preferences, dislikes, desires, and dreams — would enable a constantly updated profile, automatically matched to other app subscribers to save us time on scanning and swiping profiles. Matching could become much more refined based on intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual attributes, maybe even predicting the likely relationship length and the potential for longer term compatibility.

Our smartphone-based AI could even read the reviews from previous dates and highlight those with a high compatibility probability.

What’s your Tindr or Grindr record? Because I know someone who proudly boasts it’s three minutes. If you’re not sure what that means, then let’s move swiftly on to this satirical and subversive series of illustrations by Natalie Wong that explore the world of modern dating. Colourful and bold, the digital artworks in Fast Love cover themes of swiping addiction, instant gratification, hookup culture and the paradox of limitless choice.

Essentially, they poke fun at dating apps and their impact on romance and relationships. Inspired by the comic book stylings of Roy Lichtenstein, Natalie whimsically blends imagery of iconic fast food staples and intimately human objects, creating a visual parody of contemporary dating culture. When faced with multiple options, apps make it too easy to discard matches over minor issues because the environment provides a feeling of abundance for better dates.

On the inspiration behind combining fast food staples and dating-related images, she says: “The similarities between the ease of access, disposability, addictive and consumer-orientated nature of fast food heavily lent itself conceptually and made for compelling visual references within the narrative I wanted to explore. If we look at her Glazed and Confused illustration, for example, we initially see strawberry doughnut with sprinkles.

Rarely do we consider the idea that we might become too focused on this area of our faith that we would forget our deepest yearning, our yearning for God. And that our longing for our vocation comes from our yearning for God. Believe it or not, singleness is a good thing. Our time of singleness provides the foundation that our vocation will be built upon. The unmarried man is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to please the Lord; but the married man is anxious about worldly affairs, how to please his wife, and his interests are divided.

And the unmarried woman or virgin is anxious about the affairs of the Lord, how to be holy in body and spirit; but the married woman is anxious about worldly affairs, how to please her husband. Why Fast? Fasting is an incredibly powerful thing.
