distance dedication to the dumb asses on college campuses who
are claiming, for instance, like the uc of UC Davis
University of clowns at Davis. What are they calling themselves?

over there. Yeah, he's over there. Revolutionary. That is kind
of the way it goes, isn't it. Hey?

Speaker 5 (02:34):
Yeah?

Speaker 2 (02:34):
Yea, all right, So Katie.

Speaker 5 (02:36):
What do?

Speaker 2 (02:36):
What's you? It's on your mind?

Speaker 1 (02:38):
My mind was blown this weekend.

Speaker 4 (02:41):
I was at an event with several women who are
in their mid twenties, and we were discussing the dating
realm for them right now, because they were all just saying,
it sucks.

Speaker 1 (02:55):
It's awful out here.

Speaker 4 (02:56):
And there's an app that they're all using called Hinge,
and is that.

Speaker 2 (03:01):
Sort of it.

Speaker 4 (03:02):
It's similar to like an Instagram, you know, you have
your pictures, your captions and your little facts about you
and then.

Speaker 2 (03:07):
How long is how long has hinge been hot?

Speaker 4 (03:10):
I I don't know, but they've made Tinder sound ancient,
which was hilarious to me.

Speaker 2 (03:14):
All Right, so these places like popular bars probably it's
very similar, like that bar's popular for a while, a
year or two or a summer. Yeah, and then if
you want to meet someone and you got to gover
to that bar for whatever reason. But anyway, so hinge.

Speaker 1 (03:26):
So but they all had.

Speaker 4 (03:27):
Their phones out with their Hinge apps and you know,
shown them around and then one of the girls goes, oh,
I just matched with we'll say, his name's John, and
she shows John to the group, and another girl that
I was sitting next to got really quiet and everybody
kind of looked over at her, and it turned out
that she had matched with John and they had already
gotten to know each other. So now there's this weird

(03:48):
well did you did you like go out with them
in person? And they have this whole set of rules
and the girls were telling me that this happens all
the time. They'll match with a guy, they'll start talking
to him, and then they'll find out that this same
guy is also talking to a friend of theirs.

Speaker 2 (04:03):
Yeah. Well, I've found from people I know that do
a lot of online dating, like among the more attractive crowd,
it's a very small world. And they you know, because
if you're a good looking guy, everybody chooses you. If
you're a really good looking guy, everybody, so of course
there's going to be a lot of overlap, and then
you just go from one to one to one to one.

Speaker 1 (04:24):
I guess I don't know.

Speaker 4 (04:26):
I was just sitting there looking at them with my
jaw like dislocated because I'm going, no, wonder you guys
don't want to do this, because I just watched it
happen in live time. She got really excited about this guy,
and then her heart got broken thirty seconds after finding
out that her friend had already matched with him and
they had interacted somehow.

Speaker 2 (04:43):
Well, like everything else in life, the sort of thing
that would have played out maybe over a summer years ago,
played out over forty five seconds.

Speaker 4 (04:52):
Yes, it was unbelievable. I felt I feel for them. Now,
I get it. That was I don't know there.

Speaker 3 (05:00):
Was some sort of unwritten code of claim jumping that
they are video chatted with them. How about in person?

Speaker 4 (05:12):
Yeah, so you have if you messaged, did you guys
exchange numbers? Have you talked on the phone, or have
you met up in person? There's like a whole rule thing.

Speaker 2 (05:22):
My observation from the outside, I've never done any online dating,
but I've heard a lot of it from other people.
Everybody's fooling themselves. I think that they think this particular guy, now,
the last ten good looking guys, we're just trying to
get laid. But this particular good looking guy is not

(05:43):
meet trying to meet every chick on here to have
a physical short term thing. He's different, and they hope
the next one is different every single time. And on
the other end of it, they hope this particular chick
is just not trying to get a really nice meal
or a gift out of me in exchange for whatever.
She's different. She doesn't go from guy to guy to

(06:05):
guy to guy with great dining experience or going to
a concert or whatever. And they all just turned hoping
that the next one is different. That's what I've observed. Wow,
but if you're on the attractive and I don't know
what the percentage is, top twenty percent or whatever, you
can endlessly have sex as a dude and get taken
out to really nice places as a girl, it seems

(06:26):
from my observation. And that's just the modern world.

Speaker 1 (06:30):
This all sounds just horrible.

Speaker 3 (06:33):
Whatever happened to the old ways of meeting people like
get the county drunk tank late on a Saturday.

Speaker 2 (06:40):
Well, and I was actually reading about this the other
day that the most relationships, most long lasting relationships, happened
through somebody. You would have a way of knowing them
already through a friend or work or something like that,
as opposed to you see a picture of them. I mean, okay,
how long would it take to get to know somebody?

(07:00):
I mean, because they're basically they're blind dates without the
blind part. You've seen them, but you got zero actual
information about them.

Speaker 3 (07:09):
And given the filters and everything these days, it's more
or less a blind date.

Speaker 1 (07:13):
Yeah.

Speaker 3 (07:14):
Yeah, it's worse than a blind date, because I mean
I could have a friend described oh yeah, it's my
sister's best friend and she said she's into this, that
and the other she's really sweet, got a great sense
youme blah blah blah blah, but you just haven't seen
her yet.

Speaker 2 (07:26):
And I can also see we were talking on the
radio show, the Armstrong and Getty Radio Show, and if
you ever miss an hour, you should get the podcast
Armstrong and Getty on demand. I also know from talking
to people who do this, is that nobody's got the
patience for that to unfold. And I understand in the
modern world. Plus, if you're lonely, you know you don't
want to wait, but you know, not that many years

(07:49):
ago you would have had to wait for it. And
it might be late summer before you meet somebody in
the backyard barbecue or church or wherever you're going to
meet somebody. But people want to have somebody to go
out with this weekend, and so you're not willing to
let it unfold in that slow way that it used
to unfold, and nobody is. And so if you need

(08:10):
to have a date Friday, and I mean it's Tuesday
now when we're recording this, you need to have a
date Friday. And I know there are millions of people
in this situation you're going to go out with somebody Friday,
Well you got to you gotta pick fast.

Speaker 3 (08:22):
Just reminds me of so many aspects of the Internet
world that were connected in a way that makes us
disconnected because you've got access to meet people twenty four
to seven, and nobody's coupling, nobody's having babies.

Speaker 2 (08:35):
Right, so what are we doing? I think the choices
probably change things too, if things unfold very slowly and
you know you're going to have realistically two or three
opportunities to actually date somebody over a year, maybe as
opposed to yeah, you're all right, but I got somebody

(08:56):
I'm going out with tomorrow night. We're five people that
have already text to me today that I might go
out with. You just got so many choices. You're so much.

Speaker 3 (09:04):
I really really like you, but I've got five other choices.
So you know you'd enjoy the back burner. I'll get
back to you sometimes.

Speaker 5 (09:10):
Maybe.

Speaker 2 (09:11):
Yeah, like the menu at the cheesecake factory. Too many options,
that's exactly right, too many options. We used to call
it blockbuster video disease or something black when blockbuster thing,
but like you want to watch a movie, you go
to the place and there's just all these choices and
you end up walking out without a movie like, none
of these look good to me.

Speaker 1 (09:28):
I drove my dad so nuts so many times that we.

Speaker 2 (09:31):
Left it right, just sayce with all these choices and
f I mean, none of them seem good. I think
that's exactly the phenomenon with the I got five women
attractive enough for me I could date this week. Why
would I choose you or care about you? Yeah, it's horrible.
I felt for him. I do too. I think you
know where do I get off. I've not had any

(09:52):
long term success in love, but God, it's an odd
path to go down. I don't know very many people
that like it, and there's pole that shows that people
are hating it. Mormon. Didn't you have that story the
other day, Joe, that people were souring on the somebody
had this story. People are souring on the online dating
thing ol old as they call it in the Reddit forums.

(10:14):
People are not satisfied with the direction it's going.

Speaker 4 (10:17):
So I have many of friends who have online data,
and I have never heard one of them say they
were enjoying themselves and going through the process.

Speaker 2 (10:23):
That's interesting, that is really revealing. Yeah, maybe it'll run
its course. I suppose that's possible and people go back
to the old way, although again I don't know if
people will go back to having the patients.

Speaker 1 (10:35):
Ay, speed dating's coming back.

Speaker 2 (10:37):
I think you're gonna say, maybe.

Speaker 3 (10:38):
That was the article you're thinking of, because I remember
there are all sorts of speed dating theme nights, and
those are getting hot again because people are like, no,
I want to talk to somebody in the same room
and see if there's any chemistry. Maybe it could be
there is moving on from these technological miracles after we
try them for a while and realize they suck.

Speaker 2 (10:56):
That might be a good compromise. I need. I want
to meet somebody now. I don't want to wait months
for it to accidentally happen, but I don't want to
do it through the Uh, yeah, you're right about that.
I've not had this experience, but I have heard about them.
The it's practically a blind dating that they look so
different from the picture. Got that fishing that's got to

(11:16):
be rough. How long you have to sit there and
wrap your head around I yues. I can see how
that would be you if you kind of slimmed down
your face and cleared up your skin, straighten your teeth advice.

Speaker 6 (11:35):
You know, uh, all my data, all my dating was
old fashioned in person. You know, you just you go
up to them, you ask them out, and they either
say yes or no. You know, no guts, no glory.

Speaker 2 (11:47):
I've done that too. But you do have to be
a lot more patient. You have to be willing to
let weeks go by where you know you might not
have an encounter, and most people aren't willing to wait.
I guess, well, I guess that's it.
