 Influence of Technology on Dating 

With such an influx of new technology and gadgets, it’s no surprise that it has affected the way couples communicate. From Skype to FaceTime, there are an array of new options. Even if you are not in a long distance relationship, your significant other may still try to get “digital” with you. It can add an element of  excitement to the relationship, just when things were starting to get dull. People were not always this comfortable with “expressing themselves” through the Internet, but in 2012 things have changed. Do people even talk on the phone anymore?  However, all of this technology is a double-edged sword. Even if you are not using the latest gadgets to explore each others bedrooms, new technology can also be the cause of drama in relationships. The more avenues there are to communicate, the more there is a chance  for someone to do the wrong thing.
