People are seeking out more online what they cannot discuss or find in real time. My conclusion. Unfortunately, it takes away from those who are seeking out relationships. People are wanting the immediate arousal versus the long term commitments or the "to be discovered" The mystery and the allure seems to have disappeared.
I miss they discoveries of learning about the person or persons that I would enjoy having in my life. There grows this more respectful mutual feeling between the parties.
My opinion. Maybe it's a generation age gap.
