I think technology is a really useful tool to bring people together. But at the end of the day, it’s up to us. Technology has made a lot of things in life much more efficient, much easier. Love is something that takes work. And it takes work even if you found your soulmate… the person that you are looking for who is the perfect person for you. You both still have to put in some effort.
And technology can’t solve for that critical element of any relationship. For love to endure, it takes human capital. It takes sweat equity, understanding — and it takes people.
