Am I Old-Fashioned?

2014 - Ced Rhonda
I often think how our lives would be different if my husband and I started dating in 2016 vs. 1998.  I’m glad we dated then…when things seemed a little less complicated.

But please understand.  I’m not old-fashioned.

I’m not old-fashioned.  I totally stalked him before we ever spoke… high atop the staircase of the nightclub we first met.

I’m not old-fashioned.  I swiped to the right when I was interested…and then he reached his hand to grab mine after we flirted from across the room.

I’m not old-fashioned.  I changed my status after our first date…when I declared loudly to all my co-workers…”I JUST MET MY FUTURE HUSBAND!”

I’m not old-fashioned.  I had a cell phone when we met…and I used ALL 90 FREE minutes every.single.month.

I’m not old fashioned.  I had a camera when we went places…but it was a pain getting all 24 pictures developed after a night out together.

I’m not old-fashioned. We chatted every day…from a landline phone, albeit brief, our conversations were ALWAYS more than 140 characters.

I’m not old fashioned.  He had wifi on his mind.  I had husbandi on mine.

I’m not old-fashioned.  We captured that amazing first dance from our wedding on video…for just the two of us to watch when we dig out a box full of VHS tapes.

I’m not old-fashioned.  I love social media.  I’m just happy we dated and married before it knew us.
