This article focuses on how technology has changed dating. Mine met on a double blind date in which my mother and father had mutual friends who introduced them.
With the invention of social media it is difficult to imagine anyone going on a blind date again—why would they need to?
I was watching this video in which a cross section of people, were asked to use Tinder to find people they would go on a date with.
What they found is that people’s response to their love life was much more optimistic once they had used Tinder.
As a youth, I would look forward to the weekend just so I could meet a new batch of ladies to attempt to woo.
With the arrival of dating apps there has been a change in how many of us are finding our partners and indeed what we are looking for. Tinder lets you search for single people in your area looking to meet for dating or any other activity you could care to mention.
