Yes, modern technology *technically* makes it easier to organize a dinner or a game night or whatever floats your boat, but it also introduces a host of other setbacks and annoyances and issues and uuuuggggh.

Even though I don't ~love~ planning activities with one or a few friends like a social secretary, I've come up with enough of a method for it that it doesn't bother me anymore.

*Put together, all of these prescriptions may seem like an overdose and the antithesis of fun. I would argue that being stuck in a permanent holding pattern of “Let's hang out soon!” “Yeah, would love that!” is the anthesis of fun, but YMMV.

Anyway, you do not have to follow these rules to the letter, nor do you have to follow them at all. Do what makes sense for your lifestyle and relationships, so long as your end goal is to not be shitty.
