“It’s a struggle. I don’t think I could do it,” says Stefan Kirkegaard Sløk-Madsen, PhD in Economics from CBS, about being single. But a lot of people are single. In fact, Denmark has about 1.6 million singles. Including myself. In this podcast, we explore the role of finances in forming relationships, and this includes a dive into the dating scene, and how it has changed – and is changing!

Let me put it this way: dating is not becoming any easier. Luckily, Stefan Kirkegaard Sløk-Madsen offers me a strategy for my quest to find the love of my life.
