Is it: You would think that with Modern Technology dating would become easier – but I believe it has made the situation more difficult.
The life of texting, SMS, Facebook, abbreviations: that unless you are tech savvy some you can’t even understand, we have lost the way to actual communicate. No one talks anymore, pick up a phone and have a regular conversation. You go out – the phones are in the hands, and checking emails, messages, the Facebook page for updates and the nonsense around the world.
This should not be part of dating – put the phones away – sit down – walk around – go out and have fun – enjoy each others company – get to know each other not through the messaging but a real conversation. Watch the mannerisms, look at each other, share things. See if you have similar interests by experiencing them, not by saying you enjoy them through a message. Get close to each other – and really try to find out if it is worth pursing for a potential relationship.
Texting in the beginning state is good for just a few things. When can we meet? I am running late? See you soon? Otherwise speak use words, not the keyboards.
