Internet dating etiquette guidelines
I miss the days of my youth when a guy who was interested in meeting me had to pick up the phone, use a third party delivery system like a friend, or ask my parents if it was okay to go out with me.
I know the latter is is all lost in the “Mad Max” world of digital dating.
It’s as if we think we have a sign on our foreheads flashing, “Single and ready to mingle.” Unfortunately, that’s just not how it works. Try sorting by newest members first, people last online, age, people closest to you, etc.
With our inability to make a decision due tothe other black hole of this crazy universe—too many singles to choose from–we collect people like trophies.
We find ourselves with more options and accolades than we know what to do with.
I have had the experience of being both the dater and the coach.
The rules of conduct are seemingly made up by a hodge-podge of daters’ experiences and professionals (like me) who help frustrated singles looking for a serious relationship in the world of dating.
