It's great we all have camera phones in our pockets all the time, but let's take a minute to mourn the old-fashioned photo process.
Snapping dances or date pics; waiting to finish up a roll and eagerly anticipating seeing the developed pictures; carefully arranging them in an actual, paper album, no filter, no Photoshop.
From one night stands to casual flings, hooking up has pretty much become the norm.
I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with having a good time, but I have to admit that I miss getting concrete signs that the guy I'm seeing is genuinely interested without having to turn into Sherlock Holmes just to figure out what he's really thinking.
Yesterday afternoon I was sitting on a park bench eating a sandwich for lunch when an elderly couple pulled their car up under a nearby oak tree.
They rolled down the windows and turned up some funky jazz music on the car stereo.
It's time for a throwback to a simpler time with some good ol' retro romance.
I also tend to have a few guys on a low-level stalk on Facebook, and there’s always that frisson of excitement when an attractive man retweets one of my ‘LOLz-ier’ status updates. I wasn’t the only one of my girlfriends to leave early that night.Besides, I'd take going steady over being "Facebook official" any day. If you say you're going to show up at a certain time, actually get there on time.Male or female, there is nothing sexy about dining at a table for one, waiting for your date to grace you with his or her presence.5.And you can google photos of that guy your roommate wants to set you up with -- and in some cases, search databases to see if he has DUIs or parking tickets.Yet for all the new dating behavior modern technology has made possible, there are others it has killed off and sent to dating heaven. Back in the day, shy Romeos and Juliets could call the objects of their affection just to hear their voices -- or the voices on their answering machines -- for one glorious moment.
