Is this the future of modern love?

Good morning, Netizens...


Cartoonist David Horsey takes a look at modern love in the electronic world of today, and and it perhaps couldn't be more accurate, given our reliance and dependence upon our Ipads, Iphones and other ghastly electronic devices. I'm not even certain modern-day kids still communicate with one another without their favorite electronic device as an interface for romance.


This has got to be a generational thing. In my generation, you sought out members of the opposite gender, and took your chances and talked with them, face-to-face. Sometimes you actually found someone of a like mind and your bodies were at least compatible. In radical cases you even fell in love and got married or maybe not.


Although we may have asked the question, “was that good for you?” at some point of our elopement or love development, we simply asked it face-to-face. The truth was sometimes as elusive as it might be online back then; at least we had an answer.


I am even worried about the number of twenty-somethings that are expecting to find romance online, in such places as Facebook and Twitter. I'm so old-fashioned I met my spouse in church on a Sunday morning. Talk about quaint!


So how will the next generation communicate in their most-intimate moments? That, according to David Horsey, might be a scary moment in the future. We might even revert back to the old-fashioned way of doing things. Of course, your results may differ.
