The most recent Harlequin Romance Report found some interesting tidbits. Here are some of their findings that snagged my attention:
- Too needy (32%)
- Dependence on a BlackBerry/ iPhone (31%)
- Having too many Facebook photos with an ex-girlfriend (29%)
- Grammatically challenged (24%)
- Married to his work/ still lives with his parents (20%)
The paranormal element of the story can add twists to the technological. Imps in the machines, gadgets powered by magic, or the dead communicating through email. The possibilities are endless.
Romance is also greatly changed by technology. There are several new ways to woo a potential lover, to have an argument, or to find out about that mysterious and hot guy.
How do you think romance has been changed by technology?
