Has Cupid’s arrow been blunted by online dating?
“Online dating has blunted cupid’s arrow᾿ went one headline. That was before I saw the picture of the ‘unemployed cupid’ above with that caption “online dating killed cupid᾿.
Try asking your grandparents how they met. They will tell you by the river or some hill, and it was love at first sight and before they knew it, they were engaged to be married. According to them, one minute, you are wandering down the street and the next you're struck helpless by Cupid's arrow - doesn’t seem like the best way to start an enduring relationship (jus kidding)
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
Now imagine in years to come, what our grandchildren will be telling their little ones – “I typed my criteria into Google search, paid a subscription fee, searched through a bunch of profiles and personal ads and there he was.᾿
So things have changed these days. But does this mean that cupid has been sentenced to some jobless corner since people who opt for online dating don’t get struck (surprisingly) helpless by cupid in the name of love at first sight? I beg to differ.
Remember how difficult it was for cupid to match people from different countries those days. They had to be brought together by work or college. And even then, communication was actually not very easy. But with the internet, what can’t be done? I think cupid has now become internet savvy and his work, like everyone else’s in this computer era has become quite easy. Cupid is now striking people who live on different continents.
What can’t cupid do in this age and era?
