Spotted on Twitter: “Blackberries, iPhones and Twitter killed the dating world. R.I.P.” This statement coming from The Fly Guy himself, made me think, “How do we even manage to hook up in person anymore?!” I know a lot of us are way into technology and social networking, but is it becoming harder for you to strike a balance with old school dating?

You know, calling a person up, asking them out, going to pick them up, and enjoying the company with quality face to face time. Yeah, that’s old school dating! Today, we send evites, tweets, Facebook messages to set things up with friends and dates.

The younger guy (I still need a name for him) I am seeing is all about the text. It got to the point where I had to tell him what I was comfortable with on text, and what actually required a phone call.

We have so many ways to showcase our personalities these days: Facebook, Twitter, personal blogs, text messaging, instant messaging, or email. Whew, that’s a lot of typing at each other. How can you determine if a person is actually interested in you when they are using “text”, which doesn’t exactly scream big effort?

Are you seeing someone who spends more of their time typing at you then seeing you in person? Do you think that is genuine interest or boredom?

Guys, you aren’t really big on phones and chatting, do you prefer the texting to communicate because it is a compromise for you?

ARed! Girl, I cook Mexican food better than anything else. lmao. Dudes out here ask me “hey, can you cook”? I’m like “heck yeah…you want some enchiladas, tostadas, arroz con pollo, guacamole”? and they are like “ummm, no..I mean like ox tails, chicken gizzards, collards and corn bread”. Then I just stand there. lol *blank stare on my face*. lmao *shrugs*

Reason 2674 why texting is bad.

I was just telling one of my friends about the comment that I posted earlier to Cemeeli “Call me and I’ll tell you”. She said something very similar happened to her but the guy never called. She questioned him the next day as to why, he thought had. Either he texted the wrong one, or called the wrong. Or both. LOL

I’ve had Cuban, it’s decent. I actually enjoy a little of quite a few different cuisines. If I had to pick my favorites it would be Italian and Modern Southern/Soul, like what I grew up on. I say Modern because my mother, grandmother, aunts, etc knew how to prepare and season dishes that tasted wonderful without all the grease & salt that kills people. I don’t know what most of this mess that passes for soul food is at most restaraunts and fast-food fried chicken & such is the worst. But I’m a spoiled foodie, so my palate is very discriminating!

Starfish had 5.5 stars on citysearch and the wife wanted to try it. So we went and it was pretty good. Prices weren’t cheap but weren’t through the roof either. I had jellyfish and it was good. It has romantic atomsphere.

I’ve heard about MF Buckhead but I haven’t tried it.

Page1908 – yes my phone was bugging! And why was I in the nail salon with an entire bridal party yesterday!! WTH??? LOL!

SCool – I NEED this caffeine. I was on the way to Athens to help a friend at 2am…..dont ask….so im running on fumes.

W8 – that may be true about all the HBCU homecomings, they threw a monkey wrench in the scheduling of the Howard/Hampton game this year too and Im a lil hott about that!

W8- Korean is good too. One of my aunts is Hawaiian and she makes these Korean Chicken wings. She taught me how to do it and they are good. Remind me to make them one day. I didn’t realize how much Mexican food I ate until I moved here. I guess I was so used to it I never realized it before. *shrugs*
