Rules of modern day dating
We know nothing about this person, besides a not-so-slick pick-up line or cheesy one-liner, yet we swipe right if we're attracted to the photos we see (if it's even them).” -Meg, 24“Today's 'modern dating' scene lacks the chance for people to connect based solely on their actual characteristics and non-physical qualities.Most Tinder/Hinge/Bumble stories I hear involve a guy messaging a girl to ‘come over,’ versus ‘Hey! Want to meet for dinner sometime so I can get to know you better?Picking up a phone seems like such a foreign concept and the idea of actually romancing a woman seems to be long dead as well.

I feel like there is no social aspect left in dating.
Or go see a gallery opening and get drinks (which could be 100 percent free if you do it right).
Or go to concert and get drinks (also could be basically free, if you choose the right venue).
