Relationships in the Modern World

There are few people who would deny that life has changed dramatically in the last few decades. The world has become smaller as the digital age progresses. People can connect through phone, text, email and social platforms. All of these media span the globe with ease. Meeting someone has become easier than ever with online dating sites. Forming a relationship has become difficult for some.

Rather than spending time together, people often connect digitally. This is not the same as being together in the real world. Virtual dating has taken the place of long walks together, chatting and getting to know each other. Connecting with other people has become a series of smiley faces and pictures that show a false reality. For couples that desire a real relationship, they must turn off their digital devices and talk to each other. This is the best way to form a relationship that will stand the test of time.
