"Most people look for the closest exit when things aren't working out because they can just replace someone with the next swipe. We're so disposable, so replaceable. The fight to make a relationship work seems to be rarer with each generation."
—The Modern Breakup, Daniel Chidiac
"One I wish I never played
Oh, what a mess we made
And now the final frame
Love is a losing game"
—Love is a Losing Game, Amy Winehouse
I've never been in love before, but the concept of finding love seems to be changing with the new digital age. Gone are the times when you would typically sit down with someone over coffee and truly want to get to know them. Now, everyone is reduced to a singular right swipe, and if they aren't good enough, you dive back into the ocean and replace them with another swipe. Like fast food and commercial advertising, even love is being reduced to an empty impulse in this era of convenience. Some things aren't meant to be boiled down to their bare components and mass-packaged in a cardboard shell to satisfy a momentary consumerist need. Maybe it's time we go back to the drawing board and reframe love in the context of fine dining.
