This is because eye contact is now a minor version of the plague- avoid it at all costs and use your phone as a shield.
And once you find that unlucky slob who will Eskimo kiss you when you’re sick, all you have to do in order to preserve your new found mutual attraction is to chill the f**k out, have faith, and not flinch. What’s more important, your insecurity and ADD or being in a relationship with the person you’re currently hanging out with?
Dating to me refers to two people who hang out exclusively with one another.
Each person would willingly admit that they are “in a relationship.” To my mother, dating references a period in her life when she was casually going on real-live dates with an array of men, many of whom she was far from serious about.
For the purposes of the here and now, we will go with definition number one of dating- the definition that holds enough weight to change your Facebook relationship status. Real life interactions don’t seem to occur anymore.
In this world (the 21 year old college-girl one), dates are an after you’re in a committed relationship type of hang out as opposed to a preliminary to one. Meeting someone in class is unlikely because if there is a pause in the lecture, everyone’s head is glued to his/her phone.
As it turns out, the guy next to you in class was actually checking his Tinder profile during the lecture break.
