"You can't find your true love sittin' in a bar! You have to go out and find them." It could certainly be argued that our Southern grandparents have more relationship wisdom than anyone else in our lives – after all, many of them have been married for 40+ years. As convential dating or courting is not necessarily what the majority of the younger generation has chosen these days, we thought that we'd pit the wisdom of Nana and Papa against the concept of online dating. What do they think about the process? "I worry sometimes about the kids who have 1000 friends on Facebook, but yet never connect one-on-one," a grandma shared. Several of the Southern grandparents have had friends on Match.com, but others are fascinated that someone would go online in search of their true love. "You used to have to get up the nerve to call someone on the phone," one grandpa shared. "Now you can just shoot them a text message."
