Did we ever really flirt?
Elliot Nichols

Great thought to ponder. I’ve been approached out of the blue at bars, coffee shops, etc., but only when I’m not looking at my phone. Standing around and observing the world, it turns out, is a great way to attract the world to you. But increasingly, we feel oddly exposed when we just stand/sit there and do nothing. We whip out our phones in the interstitial moments because phones engage us when we assume nobody else will. But we don’t give each other a chance…
