I wish we lived in the world where the guy calls the girl on a spin dial phone and asked her out for Saturday night. If you want to keep a girl interested, it seems like you have to be texting and snapchatting her 24/7. Any girls out there who share my distaste for the smart phone era? How can I keep a girl interested without spending half my life looking at my phone screen?
I totally understand where you are coming from and could not agree more. Having said that, unfortunately I seem to be pretty alone with this opinion in my female friend Group. I think at the bottom of this may be a higher Need for communication or in some cases, insecurity. In most cases, I think that is part of what they imagine a relationship or Dating should be like, that you are somehow "supposed" to be in touch with each other all the time because you are intimate with someone, rather than examining that concept. May also be a personality Preference. I would suggest you to suss out those Girls early on in the Dating process by asking them how often they communicate with other People in their life via texting, calling etc. That should give you a better idea of whether you're likely to get along.
In General, I would strongly suggest looking for a Girl who has strong interests in her Hobbies, whatever they are - that way, she would hopefully not have enough time to be glued to her phone 24/7. Good luck!
I understand how u feel. I dont mind texting but I hate snapchat. I also would like REAL dates to make a comeback lol Instead of "U wanna come over & chill?" when u guys barely know each other and haven't been on any dates😞
But I think the girl ur looking for is definitely out there. Some girls are still... I guess u can say old fashion. Plus if a girl really likes u then the fact that ur not into all that snapchat stuff won't be a dealbreaker. You can keep her interested by being your self & if she's the right one for u then u guys will work out just fine.
Honestly, communication in general for me is key. I don't care how we achieve the communication, but I need it a daily or bi-daily basis. Preferably daily, though, which makes the smart phone situation easier. Because people carry those around with them.
Could you imagine a cluster of people walking around with spin-dial phones, trialing wires behind them? God, what a mess it'd be to untangle everyone.
Uhm.. No. I don't have snap chat either and I'd rather talk on the phone or in person than text. I can only text people that are very close to me. There are plenty of girls who aren't into texting and snapchatting 24/7.
I am so thankful guys like you are sill around! Take her out places, explain your distaste to her and maybe she even agrees and will like you more for your views on a good relationship. Get her the little things even if you don't communicate all day on the tech, have late night calls though.. They're super sweet!

I am not interested in technological details of how I got the date but yeah I am no fan of Snapchat and some other ways of communicating.
