It almost feels like the old world romance is dying. There’s nothing called ‘the wait’ anymore. Most people go around looking for their ‘the one’ by swiping left, right and center. There’s nothing wrong in trying to find love but are dating apps the only way to do that.
One of the crucial problems of dating apps is that they are right on point, there’s no beating around the bush there. The pre-dating apps era seemed much more intriguing when you didn’t know how a chance meet with someone could further end up a date. The suspense of that is now missing.

One of the biggest problems today is getting people to go out of their houses. What with the advent of streaming platforms, people prefer to curl up on their sofas and seek their desirable partners online. In some cases, it ends up being a mere textationship (text relationship) wherein people only chat but don’t meet as often. This needs to change and hence it is a great idea to step out and socialize as much as you can to actually meet potential interests and unravel them with conversations and not by their bios.

Smartphones are sucking the life out of us. There was time when couples would have meet-cute moments while taking a bus together, grocery shopping and so on because there weren’t smartphones that kept them hooked. It is difficult to make people have eye contact nowadays because everyone is busy staring at their screens. You would do yourselves a favor if you could keep the phone away for sometime and actually let someone approach you.
These are the most common and easy ways you could end up with a date without having to spend hours writing your bio and correcting your pictures with filters for dating apps. Trust us, if Raj and Simran had smartphones, there wouldn’t have been a DDLJ!
