Posted by Samantha Dammeyer on January 20, 2021 at 6:15 AM

Advertising and Dating are one and the same.

In an age where ad awareness has increased tremendously due to a pandemic forcing us to rely on our technology to stay occupied, advertisers are under pressure to create more innovate ways to keep their audience engaged, very similarly to people creating their dating profiles.
