Has dating completely changed as we know?
Its a question I keep hearing everywhere. Its not like it use to be back in the day - a guy gets your number, you wait by the phone for him to call, he finally calls, takes you out on a date & so on.
But today it's nothing like that. You'd be lucky if a guy even asked for your number. Nowadays its all about connecting online. Whether it be facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat or the ever so popular new social media outlet TINDER everyone is hooking up online.
Is it better?
Does it make the whole dating process easier for everyone?
I go back and forth on that question. Sometimes I think it has, because its so much easier & less heart pounding to send a snap than to actually call a guy but then again who doesn't miss being courted?
What happened to the old fashion guy meets girl, guy likes girl, guy pursues girl?...is that completely lost in this mess of online dating?!
No matter how you look at it dating & being single is tough. Dating sites like Match.com, eHarmony & OkCupid are more popular than ever before proving that dating the old fashion way is just not happening as much anymore. Everyone seems to be on some type of dating site whether for fun or for seriousness....its all happening online. It makes sense though. We are all so in tuned with our phones & being online its a shock anyone actually holds a conversation face to face anymore. In a way it makes me sad that the old school way of meeting guys & dating is gone.....to me there are just some things I like to preserve.
Personally I have not gone the online dating route. Call me old fashion but I am just not 'there' yet. I'm not saying trying to find your soulmate online is a bad thing, to each its own....but what I am saying is that online dating has changed the dating world forever & I could only imagine how different it's going to be in the next 10 years.
What are your thoughts on dating in today's world?
