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.

  1. Yeah, I didn’t enjoy dating at the best of times – but I really think I would hate it now. What would drive me even crazier is going on a date with someone only to have them constantly checking their phone. Unless they have kids they are worried about or something major is going on at work, that would be a deal breaker for me.
