These days dating is as easy as anything. From social media to putting an ad in the paper, everybody is accessible through the joys of modern technology. Although this may seem positive, it can also have some major downsides, especially when compared to the past. Originally thought of as a relatively new concept, the act of romancing one another has actually been around for a while. In fact, during the 12th century, a book was released specifically dealing with romance outside of marriage. Named The Art of Courtly Love , the book instructed those who were married to look outside of their union for pure 'true love'.

Julia Hampton May 28, Technology has changed the way people date. Texting makes it easy to get to know people without something like going to dinner and a movie. A lot of people, though, have not been on a real date and have just adapted the idea of just hanging out.
The kind where the hot yet sensitive hero woos the female lead with dinners in Paris, expensive presents, or by running through airports to stop her from getting on that plane to New York. This is unrealistic except for contestants on dating reality shows, or women dating rich married guys. But does that mean the pursuit of romance is dead? I guess my point is, whatever happened to normal dating—guys declaring their interest, and asking a girl out on a proper date?

While it sounds like a broken record when we hear about the damage technology has done to us, it is forgotten how much it has damaged potential romantic relationships.
