These days, by the time you meet somebody in person, you already know a lot about them, so the magic of learning things you have in common while developing a face-to-face rapport just doesn’t happen that often.
Now, you can just friend her, send her a message or like a post every now and then and string things out till Judgment Day.
*Before completely throwing this to the past, we will give one courtesy point for being able to let someone know when you’re running late. Winner: Tie The thing about dating is that sometimes—okay, most of the time if you’re us—it doesn’t work out.
And while we can’t deny the satisfaction of finding out your ex is dating someone less attractive/accomplished than you, the clean break of tossing all those memories into a box and then avoiding that sushi place you went to every Friday for the rest of your life seems easier than spending the next five years watching their wedding and baby pics pop up on your screen…or worse, accidentally texting them after a late night out for one more go at something you already know you’re not interested in. Winner: Then Proving that whatever decade you’re in, dating is just plain hard.
Winner: Now It’s almost impossible to argue with something that lets you get the ball rolling on your personal life while letting you sit at home in your stained flannel, cuddling the far more reliable love of your life, the cat.
While we really can’t argue with the appeal of that, there’s something to be said for having too much choice.
