I had to dig into what my friends thought by asking deep and nosy questions about their sex lives. I had to complicate things by asking about technology. It was eye-opening. Beyond the obvious, I heard a lot about the intersection between technology and hooking up: the parallels between how you feel about someone and how you choose to communicate with them. Full disclosure: The person I talk to the most — I mean text all the time, telling each other about our days as we move through them — is my mom. I also call my family on Sundays.
The impermanence of Snapchat as a means of communication is something everyone on campus seems to understand. My sources spoke to the ability to keep secrets through snapping people instead of talking to them through other platforms. This is because you can send whatever you want as a snap, and it will disappear. You can keep secrets from a hookup partner and even keep that partner a secret from your friends. Snapchat is only one platform of communication in the arsenal available to college kids who want to see each other after being out on Fridays, Saturdays or Tuesdays.
You could spend months with someone and never get to know them beyond what you discuss in person. You could feel like you really know someone but eventually discover that you do not. You might want to text someone throughout the day but not know how to communicate with them in the daytime. I had to talk to a lot of people to realize that as much as technology complicates hooking up, the biggest villain in hookup culture is fear.
The technology you use can parallel how you feel about someone. Two people could feel trapped in the claws of a form of communication that perpetuates a feeling of inificance and disappearance. Methods of communication present us with stereotypes for their usage that are hard to break.
I think getting past them is about courage. Every experience can be valuable if you let it be valuable. Every person, too, is valuable. It just requires courage to break barriers and show them that they are. Please note All comments are eligible for publication in The News-Letter.
