In the modern age it seems everyone is dating online. Some of us fight it like the plague, while others of us are so accustomed to meeting people online that, as a result, we are losing sight of the old days when we would meet people out in the world head on. Face to face.
There are some places that we can find real time human engagement and be surrounded by actual human beings. Coffee shops, book stores (wait, we are running out of book stores, Borders is over), parks, museums…there are a plethora of places to meet people, and diversify your ability to have new experiences, and connect with others.
For example, grocery stores can be a great way to meet someone, especially stores that have turned their establishment into a full blown playground. One example is Whole Foods.
The internet will always be a place to meet and connect with people but, don’t limit yourself to living through your computer. There are places out there waiting for you to enjoy.
POEM: WHOLE FOODS
It’s an office for writers
A Mecca of computers
With people looking for space
And search for an outlet
For their dying computer.
You have a conversation
With your sister
And catch up on the latest gossip
How fat is Kim Kardashian today?
