Would Mr Darcy have swiped right for Elizabeth Bennett in 2018? Would Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy have made it as a couple if What's App messaging confusion was added into the mix? Or would Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara have any chance of happiness in a world of Snapchat stories?
As recent YouGov research reveals the scale of the online dating phenomenon in Britain, Satsuma Loans has imagined what our greatest on-screen love stories would look like, should they happen in 2018.
According to the study, one in three under-40s have used an internet dating service or app at some point, compared to 18% of 40-59 year olds and 8% of over-60s. Half of all 25-39 year olds know at least one couple who met online, compared to only 34% of over-60s. And, with 69% of UK millennials admitting they would break up with someone over text message*, modern dating in the UK today has never been so cutthroat or confusing.
Satsuma Loans has looked at some of the most iconic movies of all time, including The Notebook, Notting Hill and Romeo and Juliet, and re-imagined how the stories would play out via social media today:
