Is technology ruining your dating game?

Our discussion about online dating had me wondering about all the work we put in to writing those profiles to show off your personality. I have heard a lot of misadventures in dating where the person’s personality doesn’t quite click in person. It’s easy to be charming and witty online but what do you do when you rely on that too much?

Have you ever met someone and began texting or emailing them pretty regularly? Did you notice how their use of technology was some sort of social crutch?

Do you think that all this technology is making our game, well lame?

We definitely get lazy with our efforts in communicating with technology. Maybe it stands to reason that some people lose their ability to truly engage someone they are interested in. Making that connection with someone face to face. You know, that intense mental seduction that can not be faked?

What’s been your experience? Are you meeting people who seem awesome but only because of some kind of gadget? (I’m talking pdas and ipads, get your mind out of the gutter, people)

I really wish companies would stop using words in their phone numbers.

Now that we are getting away from phones with the traditional keypads, I have to take time to actually *figure* out what the frickin’ phone number is.

Good Afternoon,

I have a question for the blog ladies (single or not). What would you think of a guy if he used a groupon on a first date? I do have some groupons and I wonder if it is a bad move or not.

trevor..player…who cares…here are some tips…..first ask the waiter or waitress do they mind if you tip them in advance for the service they are going to provide you today…slip them a 10 or more upfront…after that ask them if they are honoring the groupon special you paid for in advance…get it..you do things in advance…if she cant respect that…then you dont need her player

@Beautiful, I sent a post to you to blog monster ate it.

@Raqi ~ I would watch a program while talking on the phone with a friend watching the same program…that use to be fun…however, doing it via text is time consuming. By the time I start composing one msg. I’ve already received 2-3 from her.

Every baby starts out with blue eyes. Exposure to ultraviolet light and melanin change them to their predetermined color right after birth.

Folks now put their pictures on their resumes too. I’ve had the opp to see a few of them and answer me this…why in the hellz would you use a picture you took with your camera phone of you AND your bf hugged up? Goes to show that stupid people are not extinct or endangered. They are alive and well.

As far as a groupon, I say rolls with it. If someone is going to trip about saving a few dollas then they can kick rocks. I have a coupon now that expires today for Target. Spend $50, get $5 off. But no one seems to have any plans today to either go to Target, or blow $50 to get 5. Guess it’ll go to waste. Oh well

Trevor – I see nothing wrong with it, especially if done in a smooth manner.

Speaking for myself, I like a man that handles business, especially financial matters. When a man takes me out, I like to know that he’s “got this”. If he has to take a deep breath after counting every penny, that does not make me feel secure. I like to know that he could handle the bill even if he didn’t have the groupon. But I have no problem with him being practical and financially responsible, in fact, that’s a must for me.

With men sex sometimes leads intimacy but with women intimacy sometimes leads to sex.

Okay that’s all the random facts I can think of for today.
