That got my attention! Here’s ‘DOING IT DIGITALLY…

BEST DATING PRACTICES WITH D’ANDRA & DEE’…

 

 

 

To text or not to text…that is the question…

Jane posed the question about texting for a date which started a lively discussion this week. Is it EVER proper to text someone for a date? Mom and I have a 28 year generation gap in our age, but we both oddly feel the same about what is proper etiquette when asking a person for a date…first, second, third—you get the picture! My husband STILL asks me out on a date in person or calls me on the phone and I love this about our relationship.

You should ALWAYS pick up the phone and make the call to invite someone out on a date. This keeps courtship interesting, romantic and exciting, plus it shows the other person that you care enough to take the time to call them. Let’s face it! We are all very busy these days and bombarded with outside stimuli from everywhere. You shouldn’t use the “I was too busy” excuse when you are seriously trying to choose a mate.

And what does that say about the recipient of your rude treatment, that he or she would take this type of crap from someone? We are all worth much more than “I was too busy?” Women and men that put up with this type of behavior from the beginning will always be in the same type of relationship, and it will always be one-sided…in the bad behaving person’s favor. And the person who allows this type of relationship to evolve will always be begging for more in the coupling, making excuses for the person out of sheer desperation of being alone, and in general, grasping for a relationship they want, but will never have, because they didn’t demand it from the start. The beginning is the future; remember that when you step out into unchartered territory with a new dating prospect.

It takes time to call AND to text, but one method shows respect and the other shows a flippant attitude about the whole process. Let’s face it, if you are too busy to call someone and ask them out on a date, then what does that say about your time in general? Should you really be pursuing a relationship if you are THAT busy? If you, on the other hand, accept this type of dating relationship then what does that say about your own self esteem? Texting SCREAMS booty call! Let’s just leave it at that.

 

I’m not sure I agree with everything D’Andra and Dee said, but I do think they make some good points…like “The beginning is the future”…

What do you think about texting for a date?  Convenient? Or a booty call? Tell us in the comments below,
