The idea of Making Modern Love is refers to the love in the internet era. The social media and online dating set people to find love and now it even closer to the traditional matchmaking– arrange marriage.

Equally important, the impacts of social media on relationship is huge. Its contents became the space for people to complaints about romantic or yes romantic break ups. We actually need a social media break-up coordinator. Because the memories we made together on social media may pop up after we break-up or divorces. Aww man, it was so bad. One real and funny story, I randomly scroll-up-down and like my ex- post. God I almost killed myself, how embarrassed it was. Creep.
However, one thing that modern love surprised us. After a break ups, you thought you will never fall in love again. But you did. Because social media filtered us.
