He walked me to my car and asked me if I'd like to get together for dinner some time. By the look on my face, I could tell he realized this. From that moment forward, I was cast into the world of dating in the electronic era.Pretty much in shock that he was interested in me, a 41-year-old divorced single mom of two young kids, my voice was shaking when I answered, "Okay." He asked me for my number and as I was saying it, he was punching it into his mobile address book. I dated Will for about four months, and during that time, I don't think we ever spoke on the phone. Every date was arranged via text, and when he just wanted to reach out to say hi, see how my day was, or say something really cute, he would send one, causing my knees to buckle and my heart to pound furiously. At least now, if you meet a guy and he doesn't call you, you know right away because you have your cell phone attached to your body at all times!Was just talking with a good friend of mine about dating etiquette, and he asked me if I ever request that women turn their cell phones off on dates.

You’ve invested so much to get to this point; don’t be afraid to reveal that you’ve looked forward to speaking with them. Don’t get me wrong — it’s ok to have some silence here and there, but you really want to avoid extended periods of dead air. Be prepared to talk about your life, friends and family, hobbies and recent accomplishments. This is the most important piece of advice I cannot reiterate enough.Related: This panda is dancing: Poet calls out our addiction to apps "The call itself ended up being a good way to break the ice," said Ballantyne, who ended up dating the woman for a few months after their two-hour phone session.It can be tough for two busy humans to find time to talk, but Ballantyne said forcing people to play phone tag keeps things spontaneous.), so excited to find out if my new man had left a message. A lot of divorced people have kids, so who is going to sit and talk to their new guy on the phone? But I have to say, part of me misses those long, meaningless conversations late at night, both sitting there not having anything to say but not wanting to get off the phone. In a real conversation, one that doesn't involve emoticons, like smiley faces, hearts and tear drops, and chat acronyms like LOL, 2NTE, H&K, or KOTL (kiss on the lips), men and women are so much more authentic.In that regard, Will's use of electronics was the perfect match for my single mom lifestyle. Not only are they giving their honest reactions without having as much time as they need to think carefully about their next response, but when you hear someone's voice, there's a much more three dimensional discussion going on.

Things will come up, and when they do, it's best not to have a punishable situation after missing out on a call.
