An analysis of dating in the digital age and how online dating has changed the way younger people approach love and romance.
How did you find love? How are you seeking love? Nowadays it’s become increasingly common for young people to find love online, and with that comes new obstacles and hurdles that prior generations never experienced. Some of our problems are unique to our time, “Why did this guy just text me an emoji of a pizza?” “Should I go out with this girl even though she listed Combos as one of her favorite snack foods?” With an endless sea of potential soul mates, young people have become pickier than ever and search through their matches with a fine-tooth comb. Throughout Modern Romance, Stand-up comedian, Aziz Ansari, digs deep to explore modern romance in the digital age. Through research and personal experience, Ansari presents his findings and discusses how dating has changed throughout the decades.
