Do you ever wonder where all the Romeo’s have gone? Yes, they have disappeared into the night. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few still out there but the rest have gone down like Titanic. Bring back Morse code baby.
The problem is that nothing is secret anymore. If you meet someone in a bar, they don’t ask for your home number, they will stalk ‘research’ you out on google, Tinder Facebook, twitter, and any other social network sites they can find.
The problem today is that there is too much choice. Dating websites and social networking sites have lead to a forced and contrived method of meeting a potential love interest. Nothing is natural and organic anymore, everyone has lost the plot. They don’t need to tie themselves to one person as everyone is afraid that something better might come along, so instead they have 3 people on the go. People are more interested in getting to know the social media presence of a person rather than the human themselves.
The tricky bit of meeting someone online, dating websites etc is that you’ll always be curious to know if they are seeing other dates at the same time. This all adds to a little confusion… are you official, are you not official, are you dating other people, when is the right time to ask these questions without looking too keen?? The issue is that people are basing prospective partners based on appearance. This is why things keep going wrong. Tinder is solely based on looks and appearance and to be honest that’s just a little bit false.
I genuinely think that social media is ruining love lives all around the country. Stop preconceiving notions of a person based on their social media presence. Put down the iphone and pick up a beginners guide to Morse code. Save your souls and go forth and conquer!
