Speculation on what the future holds has been with mankind for thousands of years, yet the technology to make major changes has accelerated. For those who grew up half a century ago, those changes have had a profound effect on their children and grandchildren. Younger generations have accepted much of the change without a qualm, yet even they may be concerned about the future of romance.
Electronics in the field of communication have had a big impact on how people interact. Some of them have found it has brought them closer to loved ones, but others may feel alienated. While there has been a balance when it comes to television, movies and novels as to how mankind will act in a future full of electronic conveniences and conventions, learning to live with them can make life better or worse. The future is already here and being refined on a regular basis, yet romance is still a part of it.
