If you want to play the game then you have to know the dating rules, right? But what happens when the game changes? What I mean is that dating today is pretty much nothing like it was in your 20s, which may be the last time you dated. Dating apps , smartphones, and the entire technological revolution have transformed our entire culture. Ignore them at your own peril! Remember: learn the rules of the game or the game will play you… the choice is yours!
Coffee meets bagel. Drunk hook ups. Yes, this is what dating has come to. Last fall I went on a date with a hipster to Starbucks. Side note: he ubered 40 minutes to get there. We said goodbye and he ubered his way back home. Even if he paid.
Laura Brown. Todays dating culture differs vastly from even five years ago. Everything from texting etiquette to when to become intimate makes for a sometimes-confusing modern dating landscape. Before you venture to add someone else to your life, be sure you have cleaned your own emotional closets. Nothing destroys even the strongest of connections like pursuing love from a broken place.
Heck, what was deemed acceptable 5 years ago is no longer practiced today. Going out for a milkshake and taking a drive down Sunset Boulevard was deemed acceptable in the 60s whereas now, women expect to be wined, dined and entertained by their dates before even considering a second meet up. Even the most feminist of women will undoubtedly appreciate this, no matter how hard she tries to deny it.
