Isn’t it just as easy to check your email or your Tinder/JSwipe/Hinge as it is a text?

(Okay, maybe it’s not quite as easy, but still…) And really, is there a need to text before the date, except to confirm the day before?

Besides the never-ending text relationship that might form with no date in sight, by texting (or emailing) too much before the date, you run the risk of building a false impression of this person that may not equate to what he or she is like in real life.

We often have a tendency to share things behind the screen that we may not reveal to someone in the flesh until much later.

You can’t watch as they smile, and that smile spreads up into their eyes and transforms their face into one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen – a thing that warms your heart and makes you realize you want to spend more time with the person. Unfortunately, the reality is nowhere near that fantasy.
