Cue the sirens, folks, because the first game we’ll discuss is a true contagion in the dating world. Sugar-Coated Lying Early in dating, men and women lie constantly.Some of the lies are little white lies (“I love exercising”) while others are serious lies that no one should ever be repeating (“I’m single,” when you’re really not).The guys are usually straight to the people and ready to spend some time wrestling around in the bedroom.Since I’m more of a chatty guy who likes to deeply probe your emotional background and find out why you tick, I had to turn my sights on a different app. At first glance, Tinder is everything that’s wrong with dating in 2017. Now, that seems fun, but I’ve gone a couple of days of swiping and not matching with anyone. Is everyone in Tampa Bay really swiping left on my face?!?! Back to Jack’d (yes, that’s actually a dating app).Most of the people I’ve encountered on there were not looking to discuss my thoughts on the series finale of Downton Abbey or asking about my weird obsession with all things buffalo chicken.These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.
Jokes are made, advice is given, songs are written and movies made about how to win, lose or simply continue to play.
With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or meet in person.
This term may also refer to two or more people who have already decided they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other.
Clearly the physical aspect is easy, but what about the wooing, the flirting, the dates, the texting back and forth? If you find yourself newly single, like me, I have put together a few notes of things I have discovered since I’ve been single and back on the dating scene. If you are on Grindr, everyone assumes you are looking for some late night lovin’.
So here I am – single, kind of ready to mingle and jumping back into the dating world – but how do you do it?
Being honest, direct, consistent and vulnerable are the ingredients for a healthy relationship with others and the self.
