“No, it’s still old-fashioned. Even with media, you’re still meeting people out in public, so I don’t think the media has anything to do with it.”

“Yes, of course it has. I’m in a long-distance relationship, so we don’t rely on letters and phone calls — just go online, Skype, just look at posted pictures of me and him and just be able to know that it’s there, just having those types of outlets.”

“It’s sort of taken out a lot of the personal connection involved in relationships, because a lot of people now communicate over the Internet and figure out facts about each other from reading their Facebook page, instead of just sitting down for a cup of tea and talking. Yeah, I don’t like that.”
