Enjoyed reading this. Was having a conversation with my daughter (teenager) about something similar as she’s meet a lad her age through mutual friends who she really likes.

They’ve not been able to meet in person because of lockdown but have done far more real talking than would usually occur in her peer group (he is real, they’d not come across each other before in person).

I jokingly said to her it was just like an old fashioned courtship, so your article made me smile.
