I read an article earlier today describing how bad the current dating scene is. It described in detail how both men and women play petty and useless games in dating. It also went into detail on the lack of maturity and communication out there. Now i've been single for quite a while now but my last crush played some of the games that article described (eg. Ignoring texts and one word, leading me on, etc.) instead of just communicating what she wanted. She is just however one person out of billions so I'm wondering if that's just how the game is nowadays.

I've never dated, but from a lot of people's experience, even on GaG and places like Yahoo Answers!, yes its that bad. The only ones who won't see it bad are the ones who do play those games. My advice is stay single as long as you can until you actually found a person who shares the same views as you. Who is mature and doesn't do anything that the article speaks of. To tell you the truth, this is why I'm been avoiding dating for years. I hate this modern way of dating. And I'm happy being on my own. These people are just going to make you more resentful, miserable and if your not bitter yet by not knowing any better. Your bound to eventually because of all the bad experiences. So if you decide to date, its best to memorize that list, get your morals, views, faith and believes together, find out what your looking for in a woman, what you want and mainly NEED in a dating partner/spouse, wither or not your looking for a sexual relationship or you don't, etc.
But she is right on the money though. There are good genuine people out there. But you will have to fight a lot harder to look for them. That's all that I can say. But I think you need to realize that both men and women play that game.0

The whole ignoring texts thing is so ridiculous. It's like all girls went to some secret class one day and were taught that they must do this and somehow it's polite.
It's so disrespectful. Even a girl I know a female friend who became single, has started doing this to me. Wtf?1
