Is it just me, or has dating gotten way too f*cking awkward?
You'd think that with experience, dating would get easier. The truth is we “date” more often, but the dating we do isn't really dating. Because as the world we live in becomes faster, more efficient and more technologically advanced, dating has taken a turn for the worse and has gotten far more awkward.
Cell phones are entirely defeating the purpose of dating.
Now, well, now we avoid that awkwardness and excitement altogether and substitute it with a more comfortable awkwardness.
We now only feel anxious about whether or not the person we’re trying to hook up with knows what “Netflix and Chill” actually means. Dating used to involve two individuals who were sharing something that the rest of the world would never have access to, and it was special because the moments were private.
Plus, you can never really tell whether the person on the other side is looking just to hook up or to actually be in a relationship.
