However, social media possibly amplifies the modern informalities of dating.
The current dating scene may be a lot more fun because you see people in realistic settings rather than only on formal dates.” Quoting Kiecolt · “There’s the question of when the proper time is to post that you’re in a relationship because updating your online relationship status is essentially a formal declaration to the world that you’re dating someone.” · “If and when you break up, that’s another dramatic stage which must be taken care of on Facebook and other platforms—social media certainly can add social pressure to a relationship.” · “The general perception around alternative partners may have changed in young adults.
“The dating scene 50 or 60 years ago was very different than what it is today because dating used to be formal dates; not just hanging out,” said Kiecolt.
People have an increased sense that they have an unlimited pool of potential partners.
This concept of alternative exchange may be promoted to an extent of ‘permanent availability’ in which even partners in committed relationships still romantically observe others outside the relationship and wonder if there’s a better relationship out there.” About Kiecolt Jill Kiecolt is a professor of sociology in the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences at Virginia Tech.
