Instead of interacting with the people around her, she chose to search for a companion elsewhere online.
I wondered to myself, is this what online dating has done to us?
They want to know that he is interested in moving the relationship forward and toward the right destination—and oftentimes, women think that his sense of direction is best tested when she isn’t providing too much help. It’s just that they think relationships work best when the guy has his hands on the steering wheel.
The truth is, there are quite a few men out there who prefer to be the one in the driver’s seat, too.
Have you ever wished your guy would get a little bit more creative than the old dinner and a movie routine?
For some people, dating comes naturally because they have an outgoing personality.
But the fear that online dating is changing us, collectively, that it's creating unhealthy habits and preferences that aren't in our best interests, is being driven more by paranoia than it is by actual facts.
They want the guy to “lead” by asking them on a date.If someone isn’t making their intentions clear, odds are they may have different intentions or could be fearful in voicing it. Both involved can get blindsided simply because a lack of upfront communication. If more people said “I don’t date just to date,” I think we’d have fewer confused and tormented hearts.Also, men often put way too much pressure on themselves with saying the right words, when in reality, being intentional is what women desire from men.Others shy away from social interactions and find online dating to be a community where they can be themselves without feeling too nervous.This might be why 40 million Americans are using online dating – to test compatibility through the Internet before working up the courage to hold a conversation in reality.
