Our discussion about online dating had me wondering about all the work we put in to writing those profiles to show off your personality. I have heard a lot of misadventures in dating where the person’s personality doesn’t quite click in person. It’s easy to be charming and witty online but what do you do when you rely on that too much?
Have you ever met someone and began texting or emailing them pretty regularly? Did you notice how their use of technology was some sort of social crutch?
Do you think that all this technology is making our game, well lame?
We definitely get lazy with our efforts in communicating with technology. Maybe it stands to reason that some people lose their ability to truly engage someone they are interested in. Making that connection with someone face to face. You know, that intense mental seduction that can not be faked?
What’s been your experience? Are you meeting people who seem awesome but only because of some kind of gadget? (I’m talking pdas and ipads, get your mind out of the gutter, people)
