Revolutionizing relationships and the internet romance realm
As the yearly calendar enters the blistering heat of August, you will find contemplating all possible avenues of relief. The list starts off with ice-cold smoothies and ends on clichéd American action films, all to no avail. Ambling in misery, walk into the local bookstore, skip a few shelves, and end up deciding to cool off this summer with modern romance.
Neatly revolutionized world of romance commits to inventive, single women tweets about careless, disloyal men, coupled with a series of simple to comprehend hello, what’s up texts between two strangers, masquerading as eternal lovers.
Quite a mundane transition, right? Not really.
Romance, regardless of era, impacts humanly emotion only when related to and let’s face it, the modes of relativity today are all technological. All these years, as awe-inspiring as a lengthy account of a young man’s love for his darling may have seemed, it just isn’t as real to us anymore as a two sentence Facebook status is. Peppered emoticons, a handful of likes, the utter shortage of words, this is what we want, our mindlessly powerful language of modern-day love. Many interactions with women in the most awkward of places possible exploring chances of dating, friendship and passenger-crossings. All of it is meant to describe as primarily one of us, slow on catching the attention of girls, and if lucky, in no privacy whatsoever.
But the question is, does it really need one? Definitely not when the one person can offer a spicy arrangement of people’s relationship blunders and blind-date flattery, provoking laughter left, right and centre. This kind of manner plays a critical role in not only gripping the generation but also guiding through various twists and turns of a relationship.
“It’s becoming too common for guys to ask girls to ‘hang out’ rather than directly asking them on a date.” Because guys are afraid of rejection or because they want to seem casual about it, but it can leave one (or both) people unsure about whether or not they’re even on a date.
Coming from one of the most animated stand-up comedians of our time, for a debut, this is extensively researched material. American sociologist Eric Klinenberg, a PhD graduate from UC Berkley and also co-writer of the project, uses all his experience to lend its missing psychological and anthropological angles. Elaborated charts entailing crude marriage rates in Europe, and tables contrasting personal insecurities to chances of enjoyable romance, are just slivers of quality research constituting an impressive evidentiary base. Therefore, the generation enjoys like as a rich arsenal of global narratives and facts, an ultra-rare blend to find in a single romantic feast.
The construction of an international perspective on romance instead of simpler national take attributes complete diversity to humble debut, demonstrating versatility and acclaimed humor in equal measure.
“In books like this, it’s easy to get negative about technology and its impact, but let’s all realize we are in the same boat, dealing with the same shit.”
