It’s easy for them to find dates using apps and social media, but many young people wish they could find love in a more romantic way — just like their parents did.
While finding a new partner is just a click away, nearly two-thirds of Gen Zers (ages 18 to 24) say online dating kills real romance and love at first sight is better than love at first sight.
A survey by memoir-writing service StoryTerrace found that 59 percent of young people in this age group said love stories of parents who met on a train, at a dance or in a bar were far more romantic than their experiences and led to longer-lasting relationships.
Another 68 percent said they didn’t find true love through dating apps, and 33 percent were jealous of their parents and grandparents for how they found true love.
Nearly two-thirds of Gen Zers (ages 18 to 24) say online dating kills real romance and love at first sight is better than love at first sight.
Rutger Bruining, founder of StoryTerrace, said: “Our research shows that people are looking for more romantic ways to find love.
People prefer “we met at an event, through someone, or super random” rather than saying they met online.
“Modern love is a whole different ball game.”
