'Dating blind' means trusting the Force... or the 4G
If you find yourself thinking that dating just isn’t what it used to be, you’re right. "The modern dating world has changed with the popularity of dating apps," says Dr. Gary W. Lewandowski Jr., a professor and department chair of psychology at Monmouth University and co-founder of StayGo. "As a result, now more than ever, people are dating blind. Very few people receive any formal education or training in fostering quality relationships.”
The only tool we’re using to find a wifey, is Wi-Fi. So with little in the way of a traditional foundation to build a relationship -- you know, like a shared community or belief system -- people have nothing more than a few profile pics and (hopefully) quippy bio to go on.
Looking at it in that way, it’s no wonder people resort to the only resource they have: the internet.
