Look up and Talk!!

Look up and Talk!! was created by Jac
I was sitting in my local Starbucks this morning and noticed that everyone standing in the queue, all 9 of them were looking at their mobile phones, not one person looked up until their coffee order was shouted as ready. What has happened to us?? we used to talk to people in queues and thats how many people met their future partners. We don't need dating apps, we just need to look up and talk!!

I totally agree Jac !!, it drives me insane that no one communicates anymore. People even bump into each other in the street because they are looking down, not up. People used to talk. I live in London and struggle with loneliness, but even if I make myself go out of the house, no one talks to me, so it just makes me feel even more lonely.

I totally agree too!!

As a "millennial", my life seems to be taken over by social media!

The majority of my friends use so many different dating apps, and then complain that they can't find the right man - I don't think I know anyone that has actually found love on Tinder or Bumble!!

There are so many people that are glued to social media, yet are so lonely! So many friends online, but none in "real life"!

If I head down to my local coffee shop, I doubt very much that I would have any human interaction other than the barista!

Maybe we should collectively all make an effort to say something nice to one stranger, every single day - opening ourselves up to interaction. I can imagine that not only will it make the recipients day, but I bet they will do the same to someone else! Like a chain reaction!
