Texting and Dating, Loving it or Nah?

Dating in the new millennium is complicated. It’s been broken down into a bunch of sub categories like hooking up, seeing each other, kicking it, sexting or becoming facebook official. Long gone are the innocent days of getting a note asking if you want to be someone’s girlfriend with two boxes yes or no.

Technology has thrust us single folks into a new dating world where communication is primarily done by text messages, which I cannot stand. My motto is never trust a man who can’t pick up the phone to talk to you (he’s probably sitting next to his wife) There are also a lot of women who feel like they have to compromise themselves to get a man to pay attention to them. If I had a dollar for every time I heard a women say , “if I don’t give him some he’ll just go get it from that other girl” I’d be a millionaire. But why are we putting  up with these ridiculous expectations? And when did we decide to put men in the drivers’ seat?

A few weeks ago I was encouraged by my girlfriend Sandra B to watch a special Oprah did about dating with authors of “It’s Just A F*cking Date” Greg Behrendt and Amiira Ruotola,  and they touched on texting and dating and why women are lowering their standards.
