Commentary from the creator of Romantimatic, an app that helps remind you to get in touch with your sweetheart and send them a text. Many people on the Internet spoke out against the app decrying it as a detractor to meaningful relationships.

“…Which is pretty much the Internet in a nutshell, isn’t it? Exposed to the entire spectrum of human enthusiasms, it’s basically impossible not to judge. Our empathy overloads and gives up and we sit, staring at the screen aghast, that somebody, somewhere might actually believe that what they’re doing is OK, is acceptable, is even appropriate.”
