When my friend was in her 20s, single and living in New York City, she called her suburban mother a few times a week. Often the conversation started with her mom asking, “So?” That was shorthand for “Did you meet any eligible young men?” My friend eventually did meet a guy, and 33 years later they are still happily married.
These days we might be reluctant to ask the same question of our millennial children because we might not want to hear the answer. Yes, they met someone — dozens actually — on a mobile app. Technology has changed almost every aspect of life for millennials, including dating and mating rituals.
