God, I miss the ’90s. What wasn’t to love about the quirky decade that gave us amazingly peculiar things like Salute Your Shorts, Pogs, "MMMBop", and JNCOs? As a woman now in her late 20s bearing witness to this century's formative cultural contributions such as Twitter, Miley Cyrus, Uber, and the Kardashians, I’m nostalgic for times when everything was simpler.
I was admittedly playing-with-My Little Pony-young for most of the 1990s. Still, I often wonder specifically what it would have been like to be on the dating scene “back then” -- you know, before life got so... complicated. Of this, I’m convinced: had I been in my man-eating prime before Tinder, Google Maps, and hair straighteners ruined the romance, my love life would have thrived.
Let’s take a comparative walk down memory lane, shall we?
