So how did our grandparents do it? And how did our parents? It’s just one generation away but it seems like things changed so dramatically that it’s still hard to follow. Their pond was smaller, agreed! But it’s not like we’re going on a date with someone living on the other side of the globe, just like that. The web is worldwide but we still can’t teleport ourselves. Unless you have enough money to take a plane to go on a date, there’s only one option: sticking to what’s available in your surroundings.

One thing is certain. When you stay inside watching Grey’s Anatomy or Game of Thrones every night, you don’t have to whine about the fact that you never meet new people. Let’s stay honest with yourself. Ok, you’re not always in the mood. And hanging at some bar every evening won’t necessarily turn you into a happier person. But making an effort is simply obliged. Because McDreamy, Steamy or whatever Mc won’t just appear at your doorstep. And the Khaleesi doesn’t seem to be the type of girl being interested in a desperate houseman.
