It's becoming more and more common to ask someone out on a date via text message. How many times have you scoped out a potential love interest on Facebook? Probably more times than you care to admit. Technology has become so much a part of our lives, why we wouldn't we expect it to affect how we date and keep relationships.
Most people you ask would say that technology has hurt budding romances as well as already established relationships. I beg to differ. For instance living in the year 2015 you most likely know at least one couple that has met online. Whether it be through an online dating website, or even Facebook. It's becoming more and more commonplace. Isn't it funny that if those two people were living fifty years ago they might not have even met.
As far as Facebook goes many people think it can be an issue when people check out someone they're going on a date with beforehand. Honestly Dillon and I were both guilty of that, and I think it's part of the reason we were able to connect so well. Of course neither of us told the other we had haha. The only problem would be for the people that snoop and find things they wouldn't want in a partner. But wouldn't you rather find out those things before you got in too deep?
Another way I think technology has been helpful in our modern relationships, is texting for instance. It provides an easy and nonintrusive way to keep in touch with your partner while you're away. You probably wouldn't be able to call your partner while either of you are at work but you might be able to text them on break.
What are you feelings about technology and their place in our relationships today?
