Hello lovely people…
It is so sad that I begin every single post with apologies for going missing 😦 Allow me just one last time, technical difficulties.
Today’s post : My 2 cents on dating
Sometimes I wish I was born back in the day. Reason-dating was so much fun and real.
Back then you would make arrangements so long in advance and they would be kept!! Despite the rare communication.
I imagine it worked in such a way :
You agreed with your “bae” to meet say in two weeks at place X , and at time X, yet you lived in Ngong and he, Kiambu. And it worked! so perfectly with no communication in between. You would wait for those two weeks and meet as planned.
How you met, let’s not even go there.. But at least it wasn’t as a result of #dabotap from instagram 😀
I hope you’re getting my point though, you had to go the extra mile.
You would think that reliable communication, what we have now, should make things better….. maybe it does but just to selected few.
Relationships nowadays are maintained by social media..which is okay since you get to talk often.
However, one person is talking to a million others- who knows what they may be saying, hmmm? Yes yes, I know you will tell me things about trust but really how often do people misuse our trust?
But my focus is not what we have now, it’s what was there back then.
I envy those ‘how we met’ stories of our parents and grandparents – They fascinate me.
I would give almost anything to have a feel of that life- send a letter and waaiiiittt for a reply, call occasionally if you were rich enough to own a telephone.
And even if you owned a telephone, did you have the guts to have her parents pick the phone? 😀 Then you would have to explain who you were, perhaps, or did you have timed phonecalls so she knew when to be around the phone?
Must have been interesting, don’t you think?
