We’ve got more modes of flirty communication now than ever. And yet there’s still that tragic Sunday morning moment when you realize you drunkenly texted “you up?” to three exes and a coworker.
But, don’t worry, Jimmy Fallon and Aziz Ansari are here to say that you’re not alone. On Monday’s Tonight Show to promote his new book, Modern Romance: An Investigation, Aziz had plenty to share about modern love.
