What's worrying is the way that the likes of Tinder and Happn have drained the depth out of the art of conversation. Creating a trivialised space where we can play 'shop', but with actual people. I still find it odd that Tinder tells me to 'keep playing', as though my love life is some sort of gay Temple Run.

I believe in celebrating love, but I believe in celebrating it every day. Love isn't about material things, it's about supporting one another, laughing together, listening and comforting; it's about being a sounding board and a shoulder to cry on.

Every time I watch "When Sally met Harry" I am reminded of the time when Meg Ryan's character demonstrates a moment of elation in the restaurant. This act leaves other restaurateurs wanting to have "whatever she has had," in the hope that the pleasure induced by the sight, taste, texture, smell and flavour of their food will provide them with an organoleptic experience of equal intensity.
