Is common courtesy no longer required when dating?

Updated on January 25, 2012

Common courtesy when dating

Common courtesy, is it no longer required in our society? I am a girl so I will never understand men. Just like men say the same thing about women. Understanding the opposite sex will never be easy and we may never understand each other but is it too much to ask for common courtesy? You meet a girl and you go out a few times and then poof, you don’t hear back from them. For whatever the reason, men as well as women should have the common decency to call that person or hell, even text, and tell them they no longer want anything to do with them.

Is their some kind of etiquette when dating? Why are people not truthful? I don’t expect every guy I date to turn into something serious but I do expect some modicum of truthfulness when dating. If a man dates a woman, and things are going fine, and then you decide to stop seeing this woman then do the right thing and tell her. It is much easier to tell someone you no longer want to see them then to keep them wondering what the hell happened. What did I do to make him stop talking to me, so abruptly? Will I make the same mistake again with the next guy I date? Only problem with that question is you just don’t know what you did to make the guy stop all communications. Is it something I did or is it just he not wanting to continue. That brings another question, why am I not good enough for this guy. All this can be avoided by a phone call and a simple explanation.

      Thanks. Dating isn't easy but that's the only way to get to know a person.

      Heads of the paragraphs repeated. Nonetheless, there is no respect these days for one another. When you find that person that shows you respect stick with them and see where the relationship goes.
