Social media and cell phones have killed traditional dating and the etiquette that went with it.What was once a black and white process has somehow seeped into the gray-- where guys and girls text or message back and forth on social media for weeks on end before the guy finally gets up the courage to text the girl he likes to ask her if she will go out with him. It could have been that I wasn’t taking anything seriously, and my responses were mostly quips and void of “haha” and emojis. I had downloaded Bumble because I just moved back to Detroit and needed friends. Is there a note on my forehead that reads, “If, then”?

In her You Tube series “The Maria Bamford Show,” which was set in Duluth, Minnesota, where she’d retreated after a breakdown, Bamford played not only herself but various family members, frenemies, and dates—while crooning to her psychiatrist, “If I keep the ice-cube trays filled, then no one will dieeeeeeeee.” In her self-distributed show, “Special Special Special,” she performed in her living room, with only her parents as an audience." Perhaps, it's time to re-teach dating etiquette in the hopes that a few young guys and girls can reject the ambiguity of current dating trends in favor of a straightforward and respectful approach – one that takes place in real life and not just on the Internet. (Of course, this was back when girls had to actually call the “house phone" – a word I have had to teach my sons).Girls, make the guy call you, not the other way around. If he doesn't have the guts to dial seven numbers and say, “hello," then he's not worth dating. Guys need to call it a “date" and make their intentions known.So, rather than continuing my massive to-do list that accompanies a job at a startup, I remembered the time I played the Sam Hunt Lyric Game on Tinder.Results of this game included a massive understanding that men were clueless to any games being played on them.
