Technology has made the world a smaller place. You can literally connect to almost anyone in any part of the modern world. This has made your pool of potential friends and partner so much bigger.
Some argue that the interconnectivity brought about by technology leads to less deep connections and shallower relationships. This is true — which is why finding that specific connection is important.
The New Normal
Meeting up with old friends or meeting new people from different countries is a lot easier thanks to technology. A matchmaking app on your phone or other dating sites are now a regular part of everyone’s lives. Even if you haven’t tried one, chances are you know of someone who has.
About 15% of American adults have used either a mobile app or an online dating site and most of those that did try one — around 80% of them — say that it’s a good way to meet new people.
Special algorithms and artificial intelligence-like programs are in place to help you connect with more people who have similar interests, goals, and ideals. Matchmaking apps are now more intelligent, and breakthroughs in technology provide you more avenues to get to know potential partners.
Searching for that Special Someone
Whether you use a matchmaking app or not — you should always be open to meeting new people. Finding that one single person in the world you’re destined to be together with is a myth.
There is no such thing as one single soul mate. People connect with each other at varying levels, and you will have multiple people who you will connect with very deeply. These deep connections may fade as time passes or they may last a lifetime.
You don’t need to find one particular person, you need to find people you can connect with — and that’s just become a whole lot easier.
