Influence of Social Media on People's Lives

There is an article in today's Straits Times Newspapers (sorry, cannot link to it online as it only allows registered users access) which talks about young adults in their 20s and 30s who are happy staying single untill the right person comes along.

It also mentions that these people have very high expectations with regard to who that Mr or Miss Right is. This is because of what is portrayed in the social media scene, eg in TV dramas or movies, where the male or female actors/actresses are characterized in such an excellent manner, that is they are good-looking, hold fine jobs, caring, fun, exciting, considerate, sensitive, have so much time on their hands for romance etc.

Chances are, the influence from these TV stars are to blame for the exceptionally high expectations of would be life partners, resulting in the surging numbers of single people around these days.
