Did technology killed romance?I’m a sucker for romantic stories, Mills and Booms novels were my motivation to fall in love. Romantic stories about how boy fell in love with girl, crossed ocean to be together, ecstasy and thrill all nine yards. But lately, for me romance has died, yes people are hooking up. With no romantic story to back them up. No, you log into the Internet and subscribe to a dating sites and, type in your partner preferences and sit and wait. Get the potential partner. Where’s the romance? Yes you go on speedy dates, what happened to the magic of falling in love?
Falling in love is a personal journey I never tried online dating, but yes some do find love, to me it feels so arranged. It didn’t happen by chance. Once met a couple who, hooked up through Facebook, okay, how, did he start pressing “like”on all her pictures, and commented on all her post and it was “wow, cute this is so romantic ” and who made the first move? The story of my couple was, they chatted for months, getting to know each other, and feelings were growing, and obviously they were in different provinces. Eventually the lady went to visit the guy, by the time they met love was in the air. Yeah, nice story but, I still asked would you say, was there any romance in the air, or you only know you have a partner when you log in to your social media?
Yes, technology has made our life’s easy, but too easy for romance.
Fall in love, go on dates, picnics, movies, hiking and dancing. Let’s add humanly touches in our lives, and not depend too much on technology. As much as we won’t agree but, technology does have a darker side. We watch documents like “Catfish ” where some innocent victims are taken for a ride, by people they met online. How do you know, you are both in for the same reasons and expectations? Imagine pouring your heart out to a stranger, only to find out, this person is a fake. He doesn’t even exist, how disturbing is that?
