The term “online dating” used to be such a novelty. Now if I’m talking to someone about a date they’ve got coming up, I just kind of assume there’s at least a 50% chance they connected through some kind of app.

On its face, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Just one more iteration in many that humans have come up with as a way to meet people. You used to have to like, organize an entire ball and go dance with a hanky for 20 minutes or something before deciding which Kingdom you wanted to own. Way too high pressure, no thanks.

Which isn’t to say that the modern dating scene is without its foibles. I mean, just look at these tweets.

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who shaves me
Cause after all
You’re my Barbasol
