“Every time I ask a girl out, I challenge one of my buddies to ask a girl out too.
When it comes to modern dating, nearly every woman I know can point to at least one aspect of the whole rigmarole that always seems to get in the way of finding that special person or thwarts their best intentions. For example, one thing that frustrates me as a single guy is the pervasive need for options.
Especially with digital dating, we are bombarded with options.
We can “swipe left,” scroll through profile after profile, send a wink, message, and even see how many mutual friends we share.
We can see someone's likes, music taste, articles they’ve read, and so on.
I don’t want to be the kind of guy who rushes to a judgement or idealizes someone in my head before I’ve even had a chance to get to know them. For starters, not looking the person up on Facebook before a date and getting rid of any “mental checklist” I have, are easy pre-date fixes.
In the end, it’s about truly getting to know the person, not their profile.We start to create this impression of what we think this person might be like, and then as a result we don’t always give them an honest chance.I don’t like it—but I know I’m guilty of this mentality too.The way Isaac sees it, men and women alike can see the problems our obsession with sex is inflicting on modern dating.Those who want to find lasting love feel the loss of things like chivalry and genuine romance.But then again, we can all be guilty of bad dating behavior, even while disliking it.
