But if you want to think anecdotally, think about this: how many times this year did you complain about how much money you were spending going to weddings?
Then think about those people you know in serious relationships, and how many of them met via technology. Give them enough drinks and they might admit that said technology was Tinder.
Sure, people use dating apps to find random, meaningless sex -- the same way people have used (and still use!) bars, pottery classes and all of college. But people are also using technology to find real relationships, and the increased exposure to new people has made those relationships better. Technology hasn’t made us sluttier, it’s made us smarter.
