I love when people get burned out on technology and “invent” an alternative . . . that’s just the old way of doing things.
“Ugh, instead of the flood of news on social media, someone should just, like, print all the most important news on paper and send it to your house every day.”
Here’s the latest. According to a report in the “Wall Street Journal”, younger, single people are getting tired of Tinder and the dating apps. They’re overwhelming, they meet too many people, there’s too much ghosting, and they feel like a job.
So instead, they’ve created something called “slow dating” . . . which you might just know as regular dating.
“Slow dating” is where you meet someone in person . . . maybe at a singles’ event, maybe through a friend, or maybe just out at a bar . . . and then you go on a date with them.
There’s a 34-year-old woman in Texas named Susan who tried that approach. She met a guy at a swing dancing event, she gave him her number, and now they’re dating.
She says, quote, “This is a more natural approach, and it’s what we should have been doing all along.”
