From texting, to FaceTime, to sliding into someones DMs, dating now is all about keeping in touch through multiple means of communication. But what was it like when the only way to talk was on the phone or through snail mail? How did anyone express their feelings without emojis or gifs? In this episode of Mirrored, Molly tells stories about dating in the 80's, when meet-cutes happened IRL, and Brigid chimes in to discuss dating in the digital age. Listen to hear how the implications of going out to get a cup of coffee have changed over the span of forty years.
