So much has changed since a Saturday night date at the movies with popcorn.
One of the first variations of dating you will notice is how people find each other in the first place.
Dating in this new age filled with technology may seem easy enough for teenagers and young adults.
However, for those who have been married since the dawn of the home computer, who could appreciate the sound of a dial up modem sound, like while connecting to AOL, and happy when they heard those three little words, “You’ve Got Mail,” these people might have a difficult time adjusting to the new age of dating.
However, once we were of age, dating became obsolete because many of us married our high school or college sweetheart. Perhaps we are divorced, lonely and living alone (or with our kids), so we start to consider dating again.
But, exactly how does a mature man or woman, who had previously been married awhile, go about dating in this day and age?
Good old-fashioned dating is a thing of the past, and online dating is the future.I cannot begin to tell you the countless men and women who go online, create an amazing dating profile, and pretend to be someone they’re not. Fit”, outgoing and handsome young man, (or that bubbly woman with a great sense of humor who loves to hike), may turn out to be a 350 pound man named “Bubba” who has four kids, and is married to his first cousin.So, maybe we need to get a real photo from our online dating prospects, or try Skype or Face-Time to be sure they really are who they say they are before you go out with them or invest too much time.However, that is all irrelevant now, and it really comes down to a case-by-case situation.Although the change in norms can be confusing, there is another major factor that has corrupted the dating scene…technology.
So we need to keep that in mind when we are trying to meet someone through a social network or online dating site.
