This Funzing Experience:
Dating today is a minefield - are we experiencing a ghosting epidemic? Are dating apps changing things for the worst? Or opening new doors? Join Nichi Hodgson and Nimko Ali as they navigate the dating landscape and tackle the big questions posing those who are looking for love in the current day.

Nichi & Nimko will lead the discussion on their own unique experiences of dating in the modern day, and explore what those experiences have taught them about how to love.

In this talk we will learn about & discuss:
  • How to be upfront about what you're looking for without selling yourself short
  • How to deal with ghosting
  • How to truly decide what you're really looking for in a relationship
  • How to reconcile must haves with nice to haves in a partner
  • How to best use dating apps
  • How to meet IRL
  • How to navigate seduction and sex post me-too
  • How to turn someone down with compassion
  • How to turn a short-term connection into a long-term relationship

Nimco Ali is a women's rights campaigner and FGM survivor who co-founded Daughters of Eve, a non-profit organisation designed to help the victims of FGM. In the 2017 election, she stood as a candidate in the General Election representing the Women's Equality party.

Nichi Hodgson is an author, journalist and broadcaster specialising in sex, relationships and technology. She is the author of two books and is a former Silicon Valley matchmaker, and current dating consultant. She frequently broadcasts for Sky News and the BBC and her most recent radio documentary, 'Being Bisexual'.
