The new dating technology meet in a bar
I remember times when my shoulder pads got all up in a bunch because my friend and I spotted the same guy at the Troubadour and she approached him before I did!

The in-real-life approach to meeting people still has very clear advantages, it just isn’t the current popular method.” How common is it to meet someone face to face today (and I don’t mean Face Time)?When a couple of friends of mine just started dating, I saw a yellow heart next to my guy friend's name on Snapchat.Once I saw the yellow heart (which shows that two users are “best friends” on the app-- and have been consistently communicating with each other) it made me feel incredibly awkward.We all do it and we never really want to talk about it.
