Dating in the 21st century is a flurry of delirious anticipation. There's the potential to meet your future spouse on a number of online platforms at any time — I actually met my current boyfriend on Tinder! — with a simple one-sentence message.
On the other hand, the never-ending options sometimes make for a trying dating experience, because sifting through dozens and dozens of interests can mean missing the perfect connection. So when you FINALLY settle with someone you really, really love . . . it's all the sweeter.
