It’s a jungle out there, that’s for sure. The dating landscape has never been easy to navigate, between awkward first kisses, trying to find the perfect romantic restaurant and knowing whether you should stick with your steady or just break things off. But dating today is more complicated and different than ever before.
The internet has totally and completely changed the way we live, from the ways we conduct ourselves and our business to how we date. And online dating and mobile dating apps like Tinder or Bumble aren’t the only way technology and the modern era have altered dating. You know how your date used to pick you up at home before a big night out? Yeah, today that is not going to happen.
But that’s not all that’s different between dating in 2018 versus dating in the ‘70s, ‘80s or ‘90s.
Whether you’re trying to get back out onto the dating scene after a divorce or the end of a long relationship or just looking to see what your kids are up to these days, here’s how dating has changed since you were in high school.
