Whatever the pros and cons, there has been a recent spate of celebrity–Silicon Valley romances in the past year.Just last week, Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel and model Miranda Kerr announced their engagement (over Snapchat, of course; techrepreneurs love synergy).f there’s one thing about the United States’ current political moment everyone can agree on, it’s how polarized we are.Perhaps nowhere is this polarization more visible than in the world of online dating, where a growing number of singles are indicating whether or not being a supporter of our misogynist-in-chief is their #1 dealbreaker.

And here’s the most depressing part: No matter where you draw the line, if you’re on a dating app in the first place, chances are you’re engaging with an interface that skews toward objectification, and the reason why is an artifact of that market. In 2013, I conceived the conversation-based dating app, Siren.
My single friends said they could only meet people through online dating due to their work schedules and limited social energy.
Affleck has since been seen getting out and about with Shookus around Los Angeles.
There was also a report in the Daily Mail that Shookus has moved into Affleck’s home, just down the street from his former home with Garner.
