Interview: Filmmaker Michael K. Feinstein of “The Browsing Effect”

Raise your hand if you’ve ever tried online dating? 🙋🏻‍♂️

I have. It’s a whole other world out there in the online dating universe. Michael K. Feinstein decided to put personal experiences and incorporate them with many other online dating stories and create a film depicting online dating. I spoke to Michael about the film and his experience with online dating.


This movie spoke to me. I’ve been a veteran of online dating and swiping apps. This movie depicted a relatable side of the phenomenon. Michael made some interesting and though provoking comments about his experiences with online dating. Personally, I find it more frustrating than satisfactory.

Michael made a great point about not setting expectations. His point being that he didn’t believe in love at first sight or knowing someone is the one for you, since you don’t know what they are thinking. That’s definitely practical and true way to approach it.

We agreed on Hinge being a solid app, although I like Coffee Meets Bagel more. Dating apps really are personal preferences.

THE BROWSING EFFECT is out now on Digital and On Demand
