Is the digital age changing the dating habits of the “New Age” individual? Or the one’s who are wise anyway…. There was a time in the 90’s when AOL and anonymous screen names with random chat rooms ruled the online landscape..making meeting people online potentially creepy. Now however, much has changed and a legit profile and a little research can leave someone pretty transparent.
And also with the potential love interest exposed to all of their habits and happenings! The good things and the bad things… are their ex boyfriends in the picture, fights between family members, you name it, it can come out on the internet, and you can … wait for it… really get to know someone. Yes, this a reviving concept in a fast paced world.
We’re slowing down is what I see, and similarly to how we are realizing that the 40 chemicals involved to make a processed powdered gravy kind of makes it more desirable to make your own… yes, this takes more time, love, and presence, but the product is fantastic and it’s made of just 4 natural ingredients…
Bars will be bars, and they have their place, but they may not be the best place but they may not be the best place to meet your love interest, I’d suggest sticking with meeting your friends there for a seasonal lager and some popcorn every now and then, or to see a great event, or music show, or to ignite some sparks after a great dinner and before a romantic night in with your lover who you probably met on the internet… or at the park, or the zoo, or the gym… who knows? I guess the goal is to be open and to utilize this new digital age to our advantage to get back to the ways of old, getting to know someone, taking it slow.
Now I’m not saying run out and join plenty of fish… just keep an open mind, and heart, and look for common interests. If you see someone, or a topic that strikes you- reach out, send a message… who knows what could happen?
