Is Technology Killing Courtship?

22 Jan

My boyfriend sent me an article titled, “Is Technology Killing Courtship?” Before I read the article I thought about the question and my answer. In asking this question, one is saying that courtship is practically dead and is technology the biggest reason why. Technology is not killing courtship, people are.

Technology is the means to which can kill courtship if allowed. A guy could easily only interact with a girl through text and Facebook messages. It is up to the girl to accept that or not. I have met a couple guys that had five to six words max, including contractions to their vocabulary and they were just there for looks. I am guilty of allowing this, but it’s really all I wanted at the time. I used to just hang out with this guy not expecting it to turn into anything serious. Don’t get me wrong, he took me out to eat, drink and go swimming because I’m still a lady. They just weren’t intimate dates. I was happily single. Don’t judge me!

However, there are females that are actually looking for a long-term relationship and allowing a text/fb only interaction. Don’t give me that, “but maybe he’s shy or intimidated,” bull sh*t! He needs to man up, call you, hear your voice and ask you out on a real date damnit. Your first “date” should not be at his house!!! That is NOT a date ladies. Hanging out with his friends as your first meet up isn’t a date either!

All I’m saying is, technology can completely kill courtship, but only if allowed. You get what you give. If you’re giving the thumbs up for the voiceless interactions then that that is what you’re going to get!
