what was described here earlier as dating culture. I can totally relate. its uncomfortable being forced into a game where both participants kind of apply to rules that they think are valid and true because we are taught to believe so. like, who defines how and why two people come together? so we make a shortterm effort in using nice flattering words, smile even if we don't feel like it, invest in flowers and food and hope we win? and thats it? we return to our lives telling our friends that "its official guys, he posted it on facebook" and fail to see that the real connection our souls are craving is not found in trying to be liked but in being true to yourself and being accepted.
"I don't want to date you. Our first date was horrible. It felt like a game. All i want is to calm down a little from the madness of modern life."

Descriptive of the increasingly large number of people who do not conform to the traditional values of man + woman = ok. Modern People tend towards being attracted to their own sex, or even both, in which case they are considered to be Thoroughly Modern People.

Symptoms of Modernity include overly tight/baggy clothes (boys/girls respectively), visible underwear, and publically being amorous with a member of the same sex.

Term was initially invented in the Birmingham area of the UK as a means of talking about suspected Modern People in close proximity without the subjects being aware of what was being discussed. Its growing popularity is rendering it useless in this regard.
