Dating my neighbor

Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.

It’s far too complex, scary and difficult for mere mortals – so let’s bridge the gap by asking both men and women what doesn’t work when it comes to online dating Dating has gone digital.

That’s one of the issues I see with online dating though.

Words on a page can only tell you so much and often, they are not the best “first impressions”.

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.

We became good friends first and we only started dating 2 years later.

It made me SO uncomfortable that guys so much older than me, older than most of my siblings (all of which are 8 years plus older than me), were sending me messages telling me that I was “hot”.

I am getting terribly uncomfortable just thinking about it.

This experience is best exemplified by my close friend who I will call Eric.

Eric has been using a couple of online dating websites off and on for the past year, with very little success.
