It's pretty simple. Boy likes girl. Boy ask girl on a date. If girl likes boy, they go on a date. It is really that simple. 20 years ago, around the time I started dating, that's pretty much how it happened. 20 years later that's still pretty much how it happens. I was a little confused the first time I got an email address rather than a phone number. It took me a while to figure out the text messaging thing (i.e. why girls would rather text in the beginning.) The emailing and the texting do drag the "get to know ya" process out, which I think is a bad thing. All the good "chemistry" is in the very beginning. The more rapid spontaneous reactions make stronger chemical bonds.
I believe we drag the process out, we over think ourselves, and we slow down the "chemistry." Instead of each date being different, some dates being better than others, we drag things out to the point where every date seems the same. We over analyze, and over complicate. Do you disagree? Do you agree dating is more complicated than it should be?

I completely agree...add in the fact that there can be soooo many misunderstandings in text messages which only adds to the frustrations...Technology has its place, can't imagine not having a cell phone, but I'm not to interested in building a relationship through it...I prefer the eye contact, the subtle body language that lets you know he/she is interested in you, the flutters in my stomach, the opening doors and gentle touches when my chair is being pulled out for me...Personal stuff...not impersonal...Cheers to all!1
