Assisted Single

Innovations encouraging the opposite of love and commitment
Implications - While there are many innovations encouraging love, romance and commitment -- especially around Valentine's Day -- many of today's consumers view being single as a good thing. Now, there are innovations that help consumers break up with their partners and play the field, ranging from online break-up services and affair-encouraging campaigns to hotels that cater specifically to singles. These innovations aid and even encourage singledom, suggesting that today's notion of love and romance has changed remarkably from what it was in previous generations.
