Comments on: In Defense of Old School Dating Rules A native New Yorker's take on dating, relationships and life in the Big Apple, commingled with entries from more than 90 personal diaries spanning 10+ years.

It makes it even harder to forge a new connection, though, when someone doesn’t seem to even be trying to make a good impression. This wasn’t the case here, but laziness was definitely an issue–and I think a large part of that is also because of how upside down, left and sideways dating has become. I understand it’s a new world out there–I just can’t help wishing we had more old world romance too. :)

take the lead though in men’s defense
They have been burned a lot in the dating
game so maybe their laziness is due
in part to their own frustrations
and fear of being rejected ? I think
helping men along to pursue and giving
then the hint hopefully will help an otherwise
good guy to pursue a bit!
well .. I hope you at least enjoyed date #2!!
How did it go??
