But the fact that everything needs to be tweeted, updated, shared and put under the scrutiny of the rest of the world means that private moments are no longer private.
These days, your business is everyone else’s business.
So what ends up happening is you either have two people just wanting to get laid, going through the motions of dating so that they feel better about themselves for sleeping with a stranger (which still allows for plenty of awkwardness), or you have one person oblivious to the fact that the other has had a hard-on since you first both swiped right. And “chill.” Damn you, Netflix, for bringing the movie theater into our living rooms (or, rather, our bedrooms, since watching on our laptops is “more comfortable" -- or so goes the excuse).
In movie theaters, we used to have to sit all the way up at the top to stop people from seeing us make moves and (hopefully) get to second base.
If it’s with someone you’ve been going out with for months and already feel comfortable with, then fine.Have you ever stopped for a second to think about how ludicrous Tinder and all those other swipe-dating sites out there actually are? You're supposed to decide, by looking only at a couple of photos and some generic information, whether or not you are interested in someone.
