Now it has been awhile and I am just curious about the dating scene.  I am not looking for anyone but I am curious. Is everyone only meeting online? Doesn’t anyone meet anyone the old fashion way by chance or through a friend? What do you do on  a first date? Where do you go? Are you talking face to face or on the phone? Has technology taken over meeting by fate? Is romance dead? Is chivalry dead? Do you meet the girls parents first if you are in high school? Do you bring candy and flowers?  Do you go out to eat?  Maybe you take your date to an amusement park like in the Karate kid. (Great date idea ) Do you go to the movies? What do you look for in a person?  There are so many questions? Do you believe in love at first site? I will tell you my ideal way of meeting someone.  I think you should let fate take over. Leave it to chance.  If you click go out if not you move on. If you click you take your date out for a nice dinner.  You are not on your phone you are talking face to face.  You get to know each other and then if things go well there is a second date. If not NEXT….   To be honest I may want to do a background check and make sure they are not a serial killer.  If you are uncomfortable and your gut says no then do not go.  Always listen to your gut.  Either way always be aware of your surroundings and stay in a well lit area and a public place.  Before you leave for your date always tell someone where you are going and when you expect to be back . Text that person once you are home from your date.  I know the mom in me  just  kicked in.  You are being cautious there are a lot of nut jobs out there.  Always play it safe.  Oh, and have a good time  if possible.  Happy Dating! Now onto the next life lesson.
