Tinder seems straightforward, but there’s something inorganic about dating someone we have, in real life, never seen before.
Quite often, we would never have chosen to sit through an hour coffee with them if we had met them in a social situation and realized it wasn’t a fit.
Gone are the days when we could meet someone by locking eyes at the grocery store, yoga studio, park or gym.
People don’t look up anymore; we stare deeply into our phones instead.
It is always the most difficult step for most people, and getting across it makes the rest of the meeting greatly easier.
If you are extremely busy and do not have time to have a cup of coffee with every person you liked, it is the only way out.
I noticed many premeditated patterns of behavior, which often led to a sigh and an, “I can get through this.” I would like to share the people I discovered are not worth our time. If we do make it on a date with them, they’re the ones who won’t want to let us go, buying us another drink just to get us to stay.
