Dating waiting and recognizing your soulmate
But with the threat of dying alone looming so imminently, society could restructure to try to enable as much eye contact as possible.We could put together massive conveyer belts to move lines of people past each other … but if the eye contact effect works over webcams, we could just use a modified version of Chat Roulette.
Careers like “cashier” and “police officer in Times Square” would become high-status prizes because of the eye contact potential.The odds of running into your soul mate are incredibly small.The number of strangers we make eye contact with each day is hard to estimate.(Of course, this never happens in our world.)
