Don’t you just miss those days when courtship was either simpler or more complicated. Nowadays, everything is just made too easy – because of technology, everything is just there, handed to you.
No more mix tapes – or even burnt cds atleast. Well, I never experienced to receive one and that made me more sad. In exchange of these sweet and uber romantic mix tapes, guys nowadays just create playlist on your ipods or post a youtube link of a music video on your facebook page. Sad and lame.
No more landline calls. Well atleast I experienced this era. Dont you just miss that feeling when you feel nervous because you just have no clue who would be at the end of the receiver? Would it be her strict dad, her oh so sweet nanny, or just her evil bitch sister? Those two hour long phonecalls, and you just don’t want to hung up, so you just pee even though you’re on the phone.
I am glad that guys nowadays still give flowers – since I can still see bouquet of flowers photos being uploaded by friends over facebook. The valentines date are still there, photobooks, scrapbooks, photocollages, engagements, music videos, first dance, weddings, teddy bears, chocolates, love letters and hallmark cards.
I hope the next generation would still experience this stuff too. I believe in courtship – and that for me it is one of the most fun and unforgettable part of a relationship. Some say its just best foot forward, so it does not make any sense, but don’t you just appreciate the fact that a guy would do anything just to please you and make you happy? Every girl does.
