Spring is in the air, and as they say, so is love. (But then again so are bees, so be careful not to get stung.)
That being said, in today’s dating world, it can feel like everything changes in the blink of an eye. What was once acceptable or even expected is now off limits or considered “cheesy.”
Even the way we view classic love stories has shifted for better or worse. For instance, getting hitched to your high school honey was once a beautiful and romantic story but that type of old school romance has taken a turn towards digital dating, social media creeping, and your friend playing amateur matchmaker with your heart.
Despite the differences in dating today, there’s still nothing sweeter than spring romance. But where do you find it in the city of Pittsburgh?
