I have decided to take a much needed break from online dating and deleted all of my accounts last night. I want to make a conscious effort to meet people in the real world instead of relying on Tinder. In many ways I feel like online dating has completely changed the way we meet people in the 21st century. I don’t even know what it would be like to date before the days of the internet and cell phones. Can you imagine a guy actually calling instead of texting. It seems that apps like Tinder have turned people into a commodity and have taken the human aspect out of dating and meeting people. What are your thoughts on online dating?

  • I completely agree! I miss long phone calls, people always text now and it’s so easy to misinterpret what they mean. I think a great guy will make an effort to want to spend real time together. Good luck on meeting someone special, I know they’ll come at the right time! 🙂

    Ps. cute pink coat!

  • Are the long phone calls the best? Staying up incredibly late at night getting lost in conversation? Love it! I just know you are going to pick up Mr. Right looking fantastic in this lovely pink look! 🙂 XO

  • I got your point, I never used an online dating site, but I meet a guy on messenger (LOL) many years ago when internet was more reliable. I actually met the guy once, but we didn’t get the connection in person as it was online (it was so awkard). After that experience, I never want to meet anyone on the internet.
    On another note, What a beautiful pink blazer – Love this look – so cute!

  • you look adorable! that pink color is fantastic on you. online dating is so strange to me- I think its a great thing, but I met my husband when we were at university together. Lots of phone calls, mix cds, and nervous hand holding in cafes. I’m glad I was raised in a time where internet did not quite exist yet ( i mean, we had dial up but c’mon), or cell phones- texting wasn’t even big when I was first in university in ’05. It’s weird to think that there are kids growing up with ipads and wifi…and now I sound old so I’m going to stop!

    • I know what you mean! I can’t imagine going to high school these days with stuff like Facebook, talk about drama

  • Beautiful look! I love the printed dress and the pop of pink. Happy Wednesday 🙂

  • Beautiful outfit…love the pink coat! Also there is definitely some good and bad things about online dating…though I did meet my husband online, so it does sometimes work! 🙂

    • That’s great you met your husband online. I think I will try it again in a little while

  • Love the pink theme in this post! I agree with everything you said about online dating and I wouldn’t use Tinder again in the future because it’s just more ‘natural’ to meet people in real life. Truth is though that I met my current special someone through this very app. So I have mixed feelings about it.

    • Well if you met someone on Tinder then maybe it isn’t so bad. I think you have to filter through the trash and it can get a little tiresome
      xo

  • First of all, I love the print on that dress and that pastel pink coat is very cute! I understand how you feel about online dating. I feel like you can’t completely grasp a person’s personality based on how they present themselves online. However, I also see it as useful tool for people like me who find it hard to go out and meet people in person due to job commitments, etc.

    • I agree Helen, I am also super busy and find it hard to meet people in real life. I think you just have to be patient and take it for what it is

  • I’ve never used an online dating tool but I have met guys in life and then gotten to know them through messaging either through Facebook or texting. It’s interesting because it’s so much easier to be open with someone online or to be a little more flirty or seem smarter and then when you meet them in real life the image of them might be distorted from who they really are. It’s interesting. I don’t know if I would try it personally, but I haven’t found much luck the old fashioned way either!

    P.S Cutest house ever!

    • Thanks so much Ellen! I totally know what you mean about chatting to people online versus in person. xo

  • I was online dating during two years, I dated with lots of guys, I repeted with some of them, but nothig too serious. I was a bit bored of that until I met a special person in real live and stoped. I think it is a easy way to meet people from you sofa and it is funny sometimes but I find it superficial at the end and just a way to have fun and no commitment. I prefer the tradicional way.
    You are pretty anyway.

    • Thanks so Silvia, I know what you mean. Online dating can get boring especially if you don’t meet the right person
