So so true. And my ex-girlfriend concurs. She regularly updates me on the parlous state of verbal comms with prospective partners on the dating app she (and I, for a time) uses.
Unimaginative, monosyllabic textual grunts are the best many can muster.
That I was not like that is what led to us dating. Wit, the power of observation, and a dash of actual intelligence go a hell of a long way towards Sexytown. 😁
