“WeChat Stick-It-To-Win-It PROMO: Your Movie Date is Free!”

During the time of our Neanderthal ancestors, whenever they pined away for someone, they’d look to the stars and make a silent wish to see them again.  In this day and age of technological advancement, we no longer have to turn to the heavens to connect with the ones we love.  Thankfully, we have various social media to help us keep in touch with friends and family from all over the world.   WeChat is one app which fulfills that role of linking people to one another.

Is technology changing love?

From tablets to smartphones, Skype calls to emails, technology has shaped nearly every facet of our day-to-day lives. Our relationships are no exception, with more and more people using technology to find and express their love and feelings.

With this in mind, here’s a look at the most common ways in which technology is changing the way we experience love in today’s society.

Covering the distance

 

In today’s global business world it’s not uncommon to regularly travel for work. Whether it takes the form of an interstate trip to meet new clients or an international journey to liaise with your company’s London branch, our jobs continue to take us further and further afield.

Travelling these long distances can put a huge strain on any relationship. Technology has played a vital role in helping couples to overcome this, with programs like Skype and FaceTime offering a convenient mode of contact.

The addition of a camera to use with a video call lets couples interact like normal and chat about how their day is going. Best of all, with programs like Skype available for free, there’s no need to worry about costly international call rates and pricey phone bills.

So, for many couples, technology is allowing us to express love for the special people in our lives, no matter how far away they are.

 

Expressing ourselves

 

Just as technology is allowing couples to interact from afar, new gadgets, programs and appliances are also helping us to express our attraction. More and more singles are turning to social media and technology to articulate their feelings. 1 in 5 Australians say ‘I love you’ for the first time by a method other than in person, such as SMS or Facebook.

It seems that lust is being affected by technology almost as much as love is, with a staggering 1 in 5 Aussies having sent or received a risqué photo online. Finally, technology is also influencing the way we announce our relationships to the world, with 12% of Australians on the Canberra dating scene announcing their new-found love via social media sites.

A new way of meeting

 

One part of our romantic lives that has undergone a radical change, thanks to technology, is the way we meet new people and find love. Things like social media sites, online dating and forum groups have created new virtual spaces for people to meet and get to know one another better.

Online dating has proven particularly popular, with sites like eHarmony.com.au specialising in matching compatible, long-term couples. In Australia an incredible 1 in 4 people know someone who has tried online dating, and 1 in 10 have found love online.

So, whether it’s discovering romance, expressing our emotions or staying close despite life’s challenges, technology plays an important role in today’s modern relationships.
