Debating our way through modern dating in 2020. From swipe rights to hook ups to the pros and cons of mono/poly relationships... and everything inbetween.

Join the Killing Kittens panel discussion on Thursday 20th February, hosted by Emma Sayle. This wonderfully knowledgeable panel will discuss the rules and ‘how-tos’ of dating in the modern world, what dating in 2020 is going to look like and how things have changed, especially since the #metoo movement. As well as debating the pros and cons of monogamy vs. polyamory. 

The Date Debate will be discussing:


What does dating look like in 2020?

  • Exploring sexuality more with more gender fluid dating
  • People are too busy to date so does this mean we'll see more hook up dating?
  • The impact the #metoo movement has had on the behaviour of men and women online and how its affected them in offline dating


Polyamory vs Monogamy

  • Is polyamory for everyone, and is it as simple as it seems?
  • Is it good for us to limit ourselves to one partner for the rest of our life in a monogamous relationship?
  • Can people have the best of both worlds? 


And other related topics...
