In my last post I mentioned that Matt had gone back to his ex-girlfriend. I was tempted to contact him, but after a few days I decided not to.I haven’t spoken much yet about Dale, but he is a sweetheart although things are moving very slowly. Then yesterday as I was working at home my phone rang. I hemmed and hawed over whether to answer it, and finally did. I have not forgotten the jerk factor (three broken dates including the final one when he said he was going back to his ex). Has it really been almost a month since I last posted??? First, a quick update on where I left things off – for those of you keeping score at home, here’s what I posted last time: So the coffee with Matt was fun. We did go on a second date, which was a lot of fun, and had planned a third, but his ex-girlfriend and he apparently got back together. Matt was completely cute and sexy, but he had a jerk quality about him too, and cuteness doesn’t outweigh that over time. When you last heard from me I was about to go on a first date with Bob, whose 17 year old daughter posted his profile.In the new electronic age of communication people don’t talk anymore. Sitting around with friends and everyone is wedded to their phone or their laptop. Well, there are different situations in which people may use their phone. What level of phone interaction is reasonable when you are with someone to whom you are romantically inclined?People of Generation Y often have characteristics similar to Generation X, which is why Generation Z will confuse Generation Y with Generation X and then claim to be the generation that represents "MIllennial," when in fact, birth years for Millennial range from about 1981-2001, just as the birth-years for Baby Boomers ranged from 1946-1964.Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called "Millennials," with the primary difference between the two being technology.Millennial is an identity given to a broadly and vaguely defined group of people.
During excavations at Neolithic site Membury Rings in Dorset, archaeologists found various deposits of artefacts and other material, including antler, animal and human bone, and flints.
Better, but it still sends a message to your date that better things may be on the plate, and your interest is still diverted.
On the other hand, if you engage your calling phone and start to respond, it’s just as rude as whipping it out in the first place because it completely subordinates your date to whatever is going on in the phone.
For some people, phones have become an appendage to their hand. An obsession, or an addiction, hence the crackberry. Another way to demonstrate some sort of prowess, a level of importance.
On dates some use phones to show off, others to hide and avoid. I’ve had men on dates explain their calls or texts to me as they indulge in them (like I’m their jealous girlfriend).
