What Ever Happened To Old Fashioned Dating?

Hooking up. That seems like all people have time for and dating apps like Tinder, OkCupid, etc. are keeping the hook up culture alive. What ever happened to dating? To meet cutes?

You’ve just graduated from college. Congratulations! Your whole life is ahead of you. You’ve dreamed of this moment for a while now and you’re excited! You have every right to be! However, once the partying dies down and the congratulations are over it’s time to get down to business.
