What Happened to OFFline Dating?

What Happened to OFFline Dating?

Does anyone meet anyone in real life these days? Offline? For dating purposes, that is. You know like: Guy sees cute girl at bus stop. Guy makes joke about the horrid stench wafting from a black trash bag near the bus shelter. “Ah, the sweet smell of street funk and human waste,” he cracks. Girl giggles. She relaxes her street defenses. They discover they share a preference for puffy Cheetos over crunchy. “This is awesome,” they both think.

My Dad and ‘The Guy From That Movie…’

My Dad and ‘The Guy From That Movie…’

I just got off the phone with my dad. A 45-minute conversation.

Our conversation went something like this:

“Hi, dad.”

“I just tried calling you. Your voicemail box is full.”

“Oh, ok. Yeah, I never check it.”

“Someone might want to call you and leave you a message. Gotta check that.”

The only people who call me and leave messages are Walgreen’s pharmacy with an automated message letting me know that my prescription is ready. So, not even a person.
