Person-to-person connection and attachment development couldn’t happen via text, voice had to be involved.
However, all of those lack in comparison to celebrities who dated their co-stars. They meet, film a movie, spend months together, and end up falling in love.
Some celebrity co-stars remain very good friends for years and years, but I much prefer relationships of the romantic variety.
Meeting people was occasionally difficult — even in my twenties, I remember thinking “GOOD BARS ARE VERY NOISY.
I DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW TO TALK TO PEOPLE WITHOUT SHOUTING AT THEM.” Silver might be on firmer ground in discussing the ways modern technology have made more traditional forms of flirting — like, you know, talking to people — more challenging for her peers: A good friend of mine, slightly older and one of the first to really utilize online dating (with success) told me I had to stop the texting and demand that a guy call me.
The lack of cell phones also enabled guys to break up in an elongated fashion by simply not calling, then ignoring their answering machine, and finally having an awkward coffee explaining how busy they were going to be at work.
