Many a New York Times trend piece has attempted to explain the millennial generation's total disregard of traditional courtship rules. We millennials are apparently more fond of speed dating -- at least our their own form of it, comprising efficient meet-ups at bars and coffee shops -- than expensive dinner dates.
