Latest statistics reveal that Australians are a nation of Internet daters. With 52% of women and 45% of men trawling the Internet to find their perfect match.

The holy grail of dating sites RSVP, claims that 48% of single adults have tried it and more than two thirds of adults in NSW know someone who has met their current partner through online dating.

So why are we turning to the Internet to find a mate? What has happened to the old finished methods of flirting and fumbling after a night out at a bar? Why are our beer goggles so firmly focused on our iPhones and iPads and not staring blearily at a potential squeeze across a crowded dance floor?

In this thought provoking session, aficionado of Internet dating Julianne Pierce will reveal some of the facts and fictions of Internet dating. Can a computer programme really help us to find true love? Should you lie about your age online and use a profile photograph that is 10 years old? When should you go on your first date and how do you make a hasty exit if Mr or Ms right turns out to be Mr or Ms wrong?

Whether you are happily married, just divorced or a confirmed bachelor or bachelorette, you will be fascinated by this foray into love and where to find it in the 21st Century.

Julianne Pierce is a producer, writer and performer. Her alter ego Madame Ivana is a well-known matchmaker and fortune-teller who travels the world in pursuit of romance, excitement and the perfect oyster.
