Love means never having to delete your search history

How would romantic films play out for the social media generation?

What would it be like if classic moments from silver screen romance happened today? Would it play out just the same? Would smartphones get in the way? Could stumbling upon someone on Tinder really be the same as bumping into them in the street? Do grand gestures translate to the Instagram generation or would the leading lady be ghosted, and the hunk of the screen benched?

We think it could go a little like this.
