Do you feel like this era has lost touch with romance? Like we meet online, live tweet our dates, and then keep swiping on other people. Do you feel like we're missing out on something?

The more you swipe, the more you pipe


HAHAHAHAH this has me rolling.

If you’re in your 20s, just enjoy it bro. The seriousness and soul-mating comes when you’re older and genuinely mean to settle down.


Nope, not missing out on anything for me personally. Pretty introverted, the people I get along with the most probably aren't going to be people I meet in bars and such. Obviously I'm single now but some of my most positive experiences would never have happened without the apps since I would have never met these types of people out in public. I've asked women out in bars and coffeeshops before but they have never worked out compatibility-wise. Just my experience 🤔🤔.


Yeah, I’ve just been thinking I need to slow down.

Apps gamify dating for me and I don’t like it, I’m not as patient with women as I feel like I should be because I know I have more women waiting for me on the apps, so it’s this cycle of rotating women and swapping one or two out when a new interesting profile pops up.

I don’t live tweet my dates though 😂


Yes I do. Nothing is like it used to be and ating really sucks. Romance is dead.


It’s the paradox of choice resulting in constantly chasing the next high without being able to enjoy what one has and deriving contentment from it.

It's different, but no less romantic.

yeah, I've become sick of the online dating thing, every conversation is the same. The same dozen questions then we move on

The hopeless romantic in me yearns so much for deeper connections and meet cute love stories. Even though it feels like it's gone, I feel like you just have to look in the right places. If you don't like the online dating scene then stop looking online. Go out and look for it.

Yep. But also, things have changed and people have been really busy pursuing careers. I feel like there should not be a hard and fast rule when it comes to dating. You do you. Romance is subjective anyway.

I think things just keep evolving. The romance is still there. It's the way of showing it that changed.

It’s almost impossible for me to get out of bed until 11am or sometimes later. I grab my laptop and start working at 8:30 but I find myself just falling back asleep and unable to really get my day going. I don’t have any calls until 12 because I work with mostly west coast people. I also don’t drink coffee and never did. I’ve never been a morning person but I just feel like it’s not healthy. I wish i was one of those people who can get up early and work out and start their day.
