Dating in the 21st century is a very complex environment with dating apps, ghosting, sexual confirmations, and preferences. It is no wonder why the youth tend to be single and unmarried.

The upcoming indie romcom Dating & New York follows a dating couple, who have terrible perspectives of the ideal romance as they navigate the two harshest cultural phenomenons—dating and New York.

Here’s the official synopsis of Dating & New York:

Wendy and Milo, both jaded about their love lives, are thrown together at what might be the worst, most complicated time for romance in their lives—however, in spite of their reluctance, the magic of New York and a few profound text messages just might be the transformative force they need to find love. Their L-Train fueled-quest for love ultimately begs the question: can ‘happily ever after’ truly exist in the age of read receipts?

After a dashingly grand meet-cute…on a dating app…Milo and Wendy have an incredible first date, only to ghost each other. It’s not until the app itself “Meet Cute” suggests they re-meet for a date. Wendy proposes to Milo with a simple question “all the benefits of a relationship without being in a relationship” in contract form, of course. After some debate over pancakes, the two agree to this romantic doom. Along the way, their intentions and inner dating demons are tested—as they run into exes and navigate having one foot in the door of the single life. Not to mention their best friends, Jessie and Hank begin to exemplify a “perfect” relationship. For Wendy and Milo, their fate is decided when one of them catches real feelings, and the two must figure out how to remain friends, knowing they love one another or decide to never texts each other again.
