Since our parents time, dating has changed dramatically over the years. In the past a man would go to a dance or night club to meet a woman but now that we have the Internet that has all changed.
Today all a guy has to do is go online and join a quality dating site where he will find an abundance of single women who are all looking for relationships. This is so much more convenient than what our parents used to do and is so much less time consuming.
Before online dating became popular, it was uncommon for people to go out on a date if they’ve never actually met each other in person first. Now that we have Internet dating, it is very common for a man and a woman to plan a date together even though they’ve never actually met each other face to face.
Years ago, a gentleman would pick up a young lady at her house and maybe even be invited inside to meet her parents. We’ve all seen those old television shows where the girl’s father would have a talk with the girl’s boyfriend about where he plans on taking her and that she should be home no later than a certain time. Boy, have times changed. Today if a guy goes to pick up a young woman at her house, chances are she isn’t living with her parents and she probably has her own car!
In our parents time a guy was limited to dating women who lived in his area or town. If you lived in a small town it was very common for many single people to not only know of each other but to have dated one another as well. Thanks to Internet dating we now have the opportunity to meet men and women from all parts of the country including other countries.
Email has also played a role in changing how men meet and date single women. In the past if a guy met a girl in a bar and was interested in her, he’d most likely ask for her phone number. Today a single woman has the option to give out her cell phone number or email address. Some women feel much more comfortable giving out their email address than their phone number when meeting someone for the very first time. Email is also a way for two people to get to know each other before actually speaking on the phone.
In our parents time cell phones didn’t even exist which means the only way to call or contact someone was if they were at home or at work. Today it’s very convenient and common for a man to send a woman a text message anytime, anywhere saying that he was thinking about her or maybe simply calling her up just to say hi. Cell phones have made communication between men and women extremely convenient helping two people get to know one another better.
