Dating was all about dinners, meeting at cute cafes, and other outdoor activities but with the pandemic, meeting people has been replaced with dating apps, video calls, and Netflix parties.

A Twitter user sparked a conversation online as they wanted to go back to the ‘old-fashioned way of dating.’

@jzux in a tweet wrote, “Deleting my dating apps because I want to meet someone the old fashioned way (he sells me onions, I sell him jars of spiced peaches).”

The tweet referred to a 1998 Young Adult novel Holes, where a boy named Sam exchanges his onions with one of the protagonists for a jar of peaches.

The tweet went viral and netizens were quick to indulge in the thread and started making versions of their own.
