Surprise surprise, says Jeney — it’s the inability to connect deeply with a potential romantic partner.
We sat down with Jeney to sort through this massive problem, and to get some practical advice on how to find love in the modern age.

AJ: I think that question’s loaded, because there’s so much that they can quote-unquote “do” on the practical end, [for example] maybe avoid Tinder or certain platforms that are instant, instant, instant.

I would definitely suggest having some phone conversations prior [to the first date] — not texting, not emails, genuine phone conversations.
