Are dating methods evolving over time, or are they causing human interaction to deteriorate?
Modern society has created dozens of convenient, fast ways to meet a possible ‘significant other.’ Dating websites are boasting thousands upon thousands of users, and the numbers are accelerating at a rapid rate. There are various websites for every category of relationships that one can imagine, and can easily be tailored to a specific need within minutes. Looking for a possible match is starting to become less of a human interaction, and more like ordering off of a menu at a restaurant. Do you think we are missing out on friendships or relationships that might have occurred if we hadn’t dismissed them due to something in their profile we wouldn’t have seen if it was a chance meeting? Or are we simply cutting back on broken hearts and failed relationships by pre-screening aspects of possible dates, resulting in a more intelligent method of communication?
