Modern dating sucks. There are way too many rules: don't text first, when are you hanging out versus dating, make a judgement based on a 2-second glance on Tinder... How are you supposed to date in the 21st Century?
We live in a world where people are afraid to feel anything genuine, or at the very least, are afraid to show it. When someone is angry with you, there’s no phone call asking to talk about it. Instead you get a passive aggressive response to a text message or a suspiciously relevant subtweet, quietly calling you out in 140 characters or less. If you like someone, you don’t tell them how you feel; rather you act interested enough for them to pick up on it, but not enough to freak them out.
