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)

SlimGoody…I got that same coupon last week. I turned around and gave it to the lady behind me with three kids who had a cart full of stuff.
(Yeah….I know I wasn’t supposed to, but the cashier didn’t mind.)

The secret to making the perfect pot of thick creamy grits is to not pre-boil your water. Start the grit in cold tap water (4:1) and stir often. Voila…perfect grits.

Okay, now I’m done.

@ raqi: with men sex sometimes leads to intimacy, with women intimacy sometimes leads to sex…

that’s cause women need a reason to have sex – men just need a place :D

Thanks blue I will add those to my memory bank.

When my brother and I were young we would read books, newspaper and magazine or whatever and gather all this “useless” knowledge just to tell it to each other. My youngest son is just like that now.

Well…it was actually my *frugal* side showing.

I knew that even if I did get back to Target before it expired, I wasn’t going to spend $50. (I didn’t have anything that I *needed* that I was going to spend $50 on.)

If I had let it expire, it was going to feel like I was throwing away $5.

Can’t explain this burning in my chest
Beating against my breast
Spreading through all my extremities
Got me searching for a remedy
Weightless…with no parachute
If I hit the ground, hoping to recoup
Just as fas as I’ve fallen for you

(Just came across this on my desk written on the back of a notepad)

oooook den
