Yeah, yeah, online personals, fine, whatever – this is the big change:
Instead of sitting by the [baby blue, rotary-dial, Princess] phone, wondering if he’ll call, you can sit by the computer, leave it on the page with your email inbox , and hit F5 every two to three minutes.
I thought this was going to be a post about how frustrating it is to make plans now that cell phones are ubiquitous. Nobody seems to want to actually commit to something. It’s not limited to dating, but it still pisses me off.
Every once in a while while frantically trying to verify some last-minute excursion, someone will comment “what did we ever do without cell phones?” And I think “we actually planned ahead.”
