1st month dating
The road to being “official” is a long one, or around three months I will argue. Once you are official, your first fight will probably be over the very same selfies that brought you together. Men won’t approach you in places like coffee shops because whatever is on their computer screen is far more interesting than you are.Eye contact with cute strangers that could spur a date proposition also no longer occurs.The guy in the coffee shop was Facebook stalking the cute girl that sits next to him in class, who he does not have the courage to actually speak to.For the purposes of the here and now, we will go with definition number one of dating- the definition that holds enough weight to change your Facebook relationship status. Real life interactions don’t seem to occur anymore.In this world (the 21 year old college-girl one), dates are an after you’re in a committed relationship type of hang out as opposed to a preliminary to one. Meeting someone in class is unlikely because if there is a pause in the lecture, everyone’s head is glued to his/her phone.
Dating to me refers to two people who hang out exclusively with one another.
Each person would willingly admit that they are “in a relationship.” To my mother, dating references a period in her life when she was casually going on real-live dates with an array of men, many of whom she was far from serious about.
