speed dating in kitchener - Teenage online dating service
It was late fall during my freshman year at college.My friends and I were piled on my dorm bed, staring at the phone and willing it to ring.
My budding romance depended on whether I heard the shrill ring of an old-fashioned land-line phone. The social lives of today’s teens don’t revolve around waiting for their phones to ring.
Teens are much more likely to connect with each other through some form of social media, whether it’s Twitter, Instagram or matchmaking apps such as Tinder and Hot Or Not.
It’s no surprise to learn that 81 percent of teens use social media, according to data from The Pew Research Center.
Sure, teens still meet in the same ways that kids always have, but the low social risks associated with flirting online have made that option more acceptable to some than trying to talk face to face in a crowded school hallway.
At least that’s what teens said in a recent story about online romance in the student newspaper at my daughters’ suburban Maryland high school.
