Not only can this affect a first impression, but it can also ruin the fun of getting to know someone.Not everyone is the way they may appear on social media, and sometimes, online networking sites can unfortunately create an alternate persona of a person before you even get a chance to meet them.
They would catch up with each other through minimal but appropriate communication, whereas today, we utilize texting to demand to know who someone is hanging out with or where they are at any given moment.
Any ounce of trust we could have invested in a person is essentially shattered in a relationship like this.
However, in our day and age, it is not uncommon to abuse texting as a means of keeping tabs on someone.
Imagine what it was like in a simpler time, when a long-distance couple would share a phone call or receive a letter once a week.
If we didn't check up on people so frequently, we might not find out about every little thing they did last night--but maybe that's okay.
If the trust was truly there, the constant obsession with keeping tabs wouldn't be necessary.We can only provide direction and teach our future generations what great couples look like, so that happy, face-to-face relationships do not become a thing of the past.The adoption of technology has changed the way we connect and converse with others in our society and dating is no exception.With the invention of social media it is difficult to imagine anyone going on a blind date again—why would they need to?We not only have a wealth of information on pretty much everyone only a click away but how and where we meet future partners is changing.Texting, social media, and dating apps like Tinder are changing how our generation views first impressions, trust, physical attraction, and relationships in general.
