Social Media Concept of Dating:I Missed The Days When Men And Women Talked More Than We Texted

Our social media handle has now become a profiling tool. When you meet someone new, they go through your page with a microscope, trying to decipher who you are just by looking at filtered pictures
-I miss the days when two people got to know each other gradually, by constant communication and asking silly questions like “what’s your best colour?”

Nowadays everyone wants to display their ‘situationships’ on the ‘gram, especially when things are good. A Relationships is no more between two people, it is now between two people and social media
-I miss the days when everyone knew ‘of’ your relationship but little ‘about’ your relationship

When you meet a guy at a social gathering, the first thing he asks for is your Instagram handle…
-I miss the days when the first thing a guy asked for was your house address and not your Instagram handle

When I’m in love, I want to stay on the phone longer, talk about our day, deep things and not so deep things. But I hear “lets chat, I’ve had a long day, too tired to talk”
-I miss the days when people actually stayed on the phone to have meaningful conversations

I remember Uni days, when everyone stopped by at the apartment to wish me a happy birthday. This year, I complained to a friend of not calling and she said “didn’t you see my shout out on Instagram?”
-I miss the days when people called to wish you a happy birthday or stopped by at your house rather than send you an Instagram shout out

One time, I wrote a letter o my ex, he told me, “it’s too long , I don’t like reading. You should have sent me a voice note”
-I miss the days of love letters. When people took their time to write meaningful words without abbreviations, hashtags or emojis

These days, people don’t want the title of boyfriend because “we’re just taking it slow”. Meanwhile they get ALL the benefits of a boyfriend
-I miss the days when you introduced your boyfriend without any doubt in your mind as to who he is to you

Men have become lazy and women have become tired of looking like a nag so they settle for whatever they can get.

Real courtship may be going extinct but ultimately, I am in power of my own happiness and I set the terms of how I want to be treated. I am no more afraid to own who I am, my needs and how I would like to be courted. If a man wants to be with me, being courted right will not be an inconvenience to him.
