Sex and the Austen Girl: Dating in the 19th Century vs. the 21st

I probably shouldn't admit this or commit it to writing, but when I was a kid I had an imaginary friend. I knew she was fake, but I wanted her to be real. Straight out of the 19th century, we'd discuss the differences between life then and in the late 20th century. I suddenly sound like a very dull child!

Well, I think the creator of Sex and the Austen Girl and me ran in the same fictional circle. This web series features two Jane Austen readers, one woman is from present-day Los Angeles and the other is from early 19th-century England, discussing the differences between dating now and then. It sounds equally frustrating but somehow simpler then. You could always just marry your cousin then, but even that's coming back.

There are a lot of days when I wish that arranged marriages were still en vogue! When they say 'it's a jungle out there' - well, that doesn't even begin to cover the aggravation, disappointment, lack of options, and general risks that go with dating!
