One thing that has happened is that people have gotten angry. One of the things that they are angry about is the dating world. One thing that is missing is the culture in which people have talked to one another. One activity that is becoming less frequent is men approaching women to flirt. There are a lot of reasons behind this. One reason is that both men and women are glued to their cellphones. While in some ways it increases their options, it does leave them ignorant of their chances that are right in front of them.
The interesting thing about the internet and social media is that a lot of people are connected in some ways and in other ways they are even more disconnected. This is one thing that is causing a lot of frustration in dating. The internet has become the matchmaker. Another phenomenon that has occurred is that people are now looking each other up on Google so that they would see the kind of person they are. However, Google is not always going to be the best source of information. There are people who are very hard to find online.
The internet has definitely changed how people socialize. However, there are signs of the dynamic changing back to how they used to be. For one thing, people are missing the personal interaction aspect of communicating. As a result, they seem to rushing back to the older way of communicating with one another. Online dating was never meant to replace the old way of dating. It was more meant for to be something to use in addition to the usual way of doing things.
