We were forced to put ourselves out there, and go to places and parties where singles mingled. So uncomfortable, in fact, that when you found someone you liked, you latched onto them and held on for dear life so that you could get as far from that environment as humanly possible for as long as possible. And as messed up as we’ve made the system, and as much as we all appreciate the fact that we don’t have to be a part of the old awkward face to face meeting system anymore, we will never again see, as a population in general, the magic and togetherness that once existed for us in the dating world.
