Seeking: Good, Old-Fashioned Suspense and Romance
Nearly everyone my age has been on an online dating app, if not searching for love themselves, then at least looking over a friend’s shoulder or advising their photo selection and personal bio. Dating apps can be a fantastic way to meet people with whom you might otherwise never cross paths. Perfect, right? Except when the excitement of new dates turns into exhaustive swiping and overanalysis of texts and screen banter. Inevitably my girlfriends begin to grumble about how much easier everything was before online expectations, app upgrades, and photo filters. No one had to deal with this 25 years ago! they moan. It was all so much easier back then!
