Dating in the 21st Century

Let us ask, how do you imagine such an exciting and definitely remarkable event as a date? You see a man in an elegant suit getting out of a car, heading towards the door of his beloved one and, possibly, trying to hide some trace of nervousness. As he comes closer he sees her opening the door and coming out in a dress that literally sweeps him off the feet! They both smile, share some pleasant comments, and then get back to the car to enjoy the evening that’s going to change their lives once and for all… If you picture it this way, you probably belong to the generation that was born prior to the times of interactive technologies and mobile applications. One should say, today it’s just different.

The lost art of courtship

Today, it’s hard to say for sure whether a person is searching for some information, making some purchases, or perhaps trying to date. Everything is done through the Internet by means of laptops or mobile devices. The age of technology has, surely, its advantages: one can enter a site like maturedating online and try to find a match, taking into the account the age, the appearance, and other criteria. Yet, such thing as courtship is practically gone. Most of the young people tend to think: “Why should I bother with someone particular if there’s a rich choice of candidates?” As the practice shows, this ‘rich choice’ is nothing more but a selection of pictures on the screen that pay low attention to what you’re messaging to them. The true chemistry may only arise when you meet someone face to face, not simply type posts.

New concepts, leaving a trace of disappointment

Naturally, the fact that people mostly communicate through electronics these days doesn’t mean they don’t meet in real life. A great many potential couples do meet. However, what goals they currently set? Is it to find a loved one, or just to ‘hook up’? It’s pity to admit, but the majority of those simply look for something momentary, not serious. And every next step in this direction leads them to utter disappointment…

With regards to what’s been said, one should seriously think of what is going on in their personal life today. Sometimes, it seems like the more people rely on the Internet, the less they know of relationships and life in general.
