Los Angeles Jewish Home, the retirement facility behind viral gems like this Yiddish lesson, released their newest video just in time for Valentine’s Day. In this one, a guy named Jonathan stops by to get some advice about his love life. He and the residents discuss everything from flirting to JSwipe to sex on the first date, and then he gets his cheeks pinched.

Some of the highlights:

On online dating: “I don’t know if you can meet people like that. I never heard of people coming out of a machine.”

“It’s like kissing a paper in a magazine.”

On text messaging etiquette: “I don’t know from texting.”

On social media flirting: “Facebook friend request? What the hell is that?”
