Daters, who already have “must have” lists are the ones who are prejudging based on social media. Go meet, make extra special plans to meet more people in person instead of meeting through skype.
While the new technology is designed to make our worlds easier to live in, we can access more people, hook up with old friends on social media.
We have lost our sense of personal intimacy and contact. My only gripe is that it’s not personal and further, an avoidance technique.
Gone are the days when we talk on the phone, meet for special events or just to pop in. As daters, we’re already prone to prejudging people and now, the daters are just making decisions faster based on a text message. Putting technology into the equation is hindering dating even further. If you find someone interesting online, through friends, through your matchmaker, or however you meet new people, it is even more important now to take the extra time to meet and not judge your first date through social media. If you’re out there looking, please don’t use social media to get acquainted.

Without offering an alternative explanation for what is known as the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event (GOBE), researchers from Sweden and Denmark said the creature expansion started some two million years before the space rock bombardment.
