Has traditional courtship with its in person human interaction become extinct? Can modern day courtships made in a social media network, where people are highly connected but socially isolated, render a long lasting relationship?
It seems as though modern day courtships consist primarily of meeting people on social networking sites. These sites seem to be making the wait for serendipity to strike a little shorter.
The ease of using these sites is slowly making the traditional courtship a distant memory. You no longer need to pick up a phone or be face to face with a person to ask them to dinner or tell them how you feel. All you need to do now is pickup one of your electronic devices to log into one of the many social networking sites, or send a text message to the person. Since there is no in-person interaction it makes getting the dreaded “No, Thanks” or “I have plans” a little easier.
