MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Technology is growing and people's definition of dating has changed. Communication lacks from phone calls, and now changed to social media or text messaging.

According to psychology today, there once was a time when communicating between seeing another person involved quiet phone conversations or letters and post cards. 

In the past, mystery was involved in getting to know another person, and took effort to learn about one's history, likes and dislikes. In most cases it now comes from a google search or Facebook stalking.

A survey conducted in Britain found that 62 percent of respondents reported they had never sent a love letter. The same study reported that 70 percent of women would rather receive a poem or a love letter than some form of digital communication from a significant other, with the majority of males surveyed (53 percent) agreeing. 

The idea of putting an effort into a date, even down to how to ask a woman out, has almost vanished in our society, according to this technology this blog.
