Short Film ‘LoveSwiped’ Explores One Man’s Quest For Love In The Modern App Dating Age

Carl Loughlin’s new romantic satire LoveSwiped follows one man’s quest for love in the modern ‘gay hookup app’ dating age.


The film’s creator spoke to Attitude about his latest project:

“I am a young gay man, who has recently got messily divorced, after 6 years in a civil partnership and 10 years together,” he explained.

“In my hunt for new love I have discovered the lonely world of gay dating is a horrific place, and while I was bored in work I started recording my dates and writing my disastrous dates out as film scenes. Before I knew it I had written a 10 minute short film, that I called LoveSwiped. It was filmed by Dreamscope TV in Media City, Manchester.”
