Documentary about internet dating
Jonathan interviewed Sonia Richards who was a victim of “romance dating fraud” and sent ~12K pounds to a Nigerian scammer.
He talked to Ryan Pitcher, a former Global uk's employee about his job to send fake messages of love to help boost company profits.
As someone who has been in a relationship for well over a decade, the thought of single-life and the realities of the ever-changing dating scene are worlds as alien to me as those often dreamt up in the minds of the best science-fiction writers.
Jonathan also attended the last i Date conference in Cologne and asked Mark Brooks whether singles are spoiled for choice because of online dating.
