Is dating slowly dying and soon to be EXTINCT?
YOU MEET A GUY AT SCHOOL...He talks to you everyday after your Algebra class. After a few weeks he asks you for your phone number and tells you he will call you on Thursday. You anxiously wait for That day to approach. Finally, Thursday is here. You are so excited . He calls and plans to take you to a movie for the upcoming weekend you accept! You then anticiapate the way the date will begin. The predate anticipation is so intense and you cannot wait for the date!
Finally, the day arrives for your date, you have a great morning of cleaning your room and squeeze in a workout to burn off some of your nerves. After burning 385 calories you are starving and make a crisp green salad and grab a tall cold glass of water, you jump in the shower, shave your legs, almost cutting a huge gouge in your knee, Letting your hair air dry you decide to polish off that stack of homework you have piling up.
Next, you pick out your outfit for the evening. After trying at least 20 different tops you finally find an awesome blouse with your best fitting jeans, Now, hair and make-up! Oh yea let's touch up your nails!
There is one hour until he arrives. I will work on my crossword puzzle from this morning to keep me busyuntil he arrives. Finally. The doorbell ring, he is here. OMG, I greet him at the door and he welcomes me with a small bouquet of flowers. My heart is pounding. I put the flowers in a face and we go off to the movies.....
Ok, get the picture. The entire process of dating, the pre-date, all the anticipation and excitement is the best part of dating, Sadly, boys are not asking girls on dates, they do not phone them on there home phone, they text. On there wireless phone. Also, most boys do not even walk up to the door and meet the girls parents. It is totally insane. Or nowadays, kids just hook up for the night, which is started by an app!
In summary, it's so sad that courting and dating have gone to the wayside. Sex is a "hook-up" or you have a friend with benefits! Who is to blame. Society, technology, parental guidance to lack of parental guidance.
If you are single and reading this, lets start dating again! It doesn't have to be expensive, start with a coffee date, a hike or a walk in the park. If you are a parent of a teenager encourage him to stop playing video games and go ask a girl out for ice cream!
LETS BRING DATING BACK!
