Internet dating communication
Although I appreciate them thinking about me in the middle of the day, if we have gone out on several dates, at what point is it appropriate to expect a 5 minute phone call a few times a week?Is it too early in the dating process for phone contact? I think it should be used exclusively for only a handful of things: Letting someone know that you’re lost or running late. But anyone who’s ever used it knows how conversations can easily take a wrong turn.
“Good night, sweet Angel,” he texts you, just before you turn off your phone for the night. This may be due to the fact that so many more people today are using dating sites, social networks and various online forums to meet and interact with new people.
Of course, back then, “online” consisted of IRC chat rooms on the IBM Mainframe that connected together the University systems across the state, as well as the online email and electronic bulletin board system that all of the college students used to stay connected to one another. I was painfully shy when meeting new people – bordering on some kind of clinical social anxiety disorder, I’m sure.
However, I found when I introduced myself to a girl online, and they got to know my personality first, the first date would go smoothly.
You send a text when you don’t want to talk to someone, but you want to let them know you’re thinking of them.
And what can be more flattering than conveying, electronically, the idea that you DON’T want to talk to the woman you’re courting?
