Social Media is Making Dating More Complicated and Confusing Than Ever Before 10/2/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

The best thing about being married is that you don’t have to date anymore. Dating is getting more complicated per day. I cannot keep up with the steps of dating that exist now.

When you meet someone, do you ask for her number? Or, do you add her as a friend on Facebook first? Then follow her on Instagram, and maybe leave a comment on a photo or two, but not too many because I mean, if you like every photo you’re gonna seem desperate.

And what are the rules for Snapchatting your crush? How many snaps per day?

And lets’s not even discuss “ghosting.” It’s all so complicated. Thanks millennials.

Well, now we got a new dating trend, called submarining. According to Fox submarining is when someone that you’ve been dating ghosts you, then all of a sudden after months of no interaction, causally decides the reach out and maybe see if you wanna catch a movie after months of no contact with you. So it’s like they’ve been on a submarine, just all alone and then all of a sudden, they’re back!  

Man, guys had it made in the old days. When you met a girl, you took her out for a soda pop and a movie, and then got married, had 7 kids and stayed together for 75 years.

Now, you could ruin your chance by sending the wrong meme or cat video to a girl and she won’t Snapchat, Tweet, Facebook, or text you back for months. And there’s nothing worse than being in social media limbo with a potential date. I think I’d rather just ask her out and be rejected in person than go through all this ghosting, submarining, unfriending, unloving, social networking dating disasters.
