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.

A club where a legendary wolfpack of 6 men shows upon a regular basis and roams around in circles to hit on every attractive woman there is. Usually they are closing more numbers than everyone else in the club combined and also they are the motherfucking gold standard. Also a place where Momedes the sweating black guy hangs out.
Loser 1: "Hey dude, let's hit the modernes tonight and do some whack ass talk!" Loser 2: "No man, Young Money will be there and take away all of our girls! Let's wank at home instead"

Hot Babe: "I so wanna go to Modernes tonight...I heard Julian the legend will be there" Bimbo friend: "Omg, totally!"

A state in which irony becomes existentially externalized; usually through the introduction of new technology which is a skeuomorph of prior technology e.g. factories replacing farms in the era of late 1880's industrialization.
Modernism shifted parody from the literary to the existential; and heavily foreboded the existential self-parody of postmodernism.

It is an over theorised term used to describe a very old fashioned art movement.
I occured from around 1850 to 1950. Impressionism, cubism, fauvism, and realism are examples of modernism.
Modernism was replaced by postmodernism - Which one can not even talk about in a dictionary.
I still don't understand what exactly "modernism" means - it happened over a hundred years ago.

The opposite of traditionally.

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.
