My budding romance depended on whether I heard the shrill ring of an old-fashioned land-line phone. The social lives of today’s teens don’t revolve around waiting for their phones to ring.
But just because there have been no ~special~ ladies in her life (that we know of) so far doesn’t mean fans have given up hope that it’ll happen one day.
Sure, teens still meet in the same ways that kids always have, but the low social risks associated with flirting online have made that option more acceptable to some than trying to talk face to face in a crowded school hallway.
At least that’s what teens said in a recent story about online romance in the student newspaper at my daughters’ suburban Maryland high school.
Clearly, this is the best way to get that cheesy love story you've been waiting for. Zoosk created the app (which actually exists, just not for long) as an April Fool's Day Joke.

The press release announced the app (on April 1, of course) as a way for daters to transcend those trivial connections and really assess someone's personality through their burrito order.
