The Entry To Courtship Has Transformed
When I was younger and starting to get interested in the opposite sex, there came time where I was trying to figure out the best way to get a girls attention. I made sure I wore the best clothes, watch, and cologne on the market. I wanted to make sure that I was presentable.
I did not only try and select the best wardrobe that money could buy, but I began to try new areas that would make me even more visible, and aligned myself in activities where I knew there would be a ton of girls. Things that I did included joining the social dance class, choir, and home making class.
Overtime my actions led to the actual courtship of my high school girlfriend. I gained her interest! I had done it! My tactics worked!
Well that is how we all did the “courtship thing” while I was growing up, but after seeing what is happening to my best friend, I have come to the conclusion that there is a new tactic that must be added to the quiver of arrows a suitor must have to court another human being. Now days you must have a good online profile!
I never had to have a good online profile, because my high school girlfriend actually became my wife. My best friend that I used to bounce ideas off of when I was younger to decide the best way to attract a girl has been adding to his courtship tactics overtime. I found out that he was a member of about 10 mature dating sites. He was also using his Facebook page, my space page, and twitter account to make himself even more visible to females 24/7.
24/7? Yes that is right! Now days we have the ability to make ourselves available at all times during the day and night. The web allows this to happen! I never had social media and dating sites when I was younger. Making me available 24/7 would have taken about a billion cups of coffee. I would have dropped dead after about 3 days without sleep! No need to do that now with social media and dating sites! I wonder what the next transformation will be in the future. Will dating get more complicated in the future? Or will it get easier? What do you think?
