Human intercommunication is complex, layered and nuanced. Something so simple as shuffling feet, pursing of the lips, eye contact (or avoiding eye contact) can convey a depth of emotion every letter on the keyboard couldn’t express. Human interaction, where the tone used can say more than the words spoken. We’ve attempted to take this and package it into 5x2" hunks of glass and plastic, an act as arrogant (also characteristically human) as it is impossible. In attempting to do so, we’ve only damaged our perception of human interaction and even hindered our capacity for human empathy. Still, like the generations before us, we are encouraged to get out there and find “the one” in a dating atmosphere where to like somebody is to double tap on a pic and face to face interactions have been replaced with thumb strokes on an iPhone. All of these technological advancements meant to streamline and simplify the dating process have actually wholly corrupted it.
