Welcome to the year 2010, where dating-wise you are free to do whatever you may choose. When it comes to getting a personal relationship and/or physical partnership started, today’s singles have more of an outlet to make a choice from. Long gone are the days of arranged marriages and simple friend meet friend connections, probably better known as “hook ups.” Singles today have better ways of marketing themselves to potential prospects. Social networking allows you to control personal information about you and create a perceptually influenced trifecta consisting of: man, woman, and machine.
Technology is a major function of the dating scene, acting as a wall that provides emotional safety and a substantial level of comfort. This communicational medium is becoming widely accepted amongst the young populace. Now exist the days of real life “Computer Love”. In 1983, when soul and funk band Zapp and Roger released the song “Computer Love”, the band must have had a spectacular premonition or maybe even psychic forecasting abilities. The lyrics of the song expressing affection for a certain love interests’ face on a screen would be exactly accurate in describing today’s love connections.
Of course nothing can take the place of rubbing elbows with the Bay Area’s finest singles at a hotspot like Ruby Skye in San Francisco. Dating is like applying for a job, it’s always better to make an in-person first impression; otherwise you will just be another message in the inbox. However with the assistance of social media, you can now put-forth a meaningful and stimulating conversation with someone you just met as an alternative of trying to socialize over a crowd of 200 club-goers and loud music. You can meet, greet, and then tweet.
This technological dating scenario cuts down valuable time in getting to know someone and allows you to gain better access to their personal thoughts and interests. It can bring you closer to someone in a shorter amount of time, in contrast to attempting to communicate at a movie or dinner; two places where talking is usually minimal. Socializing on the internet can bridge the gap in-between actual conversations and dates. Innovatively, this is revolutionizing the way people are getting to know one another and make decisions about pursuing relationships.
