An Indiana woman received a bill after she failed to respond to a guy's text asking for a second date — and some people think he was right to charge her.
A family friend once made a comment about his 20-something daughter’s relationship prospects that struck me as amusingly profound when applied to the current dating landscape: “They come, they go. With app culture, it’s best to assume your date is also dating other people. It’s happened to everyone, usually when you meet some random stranger for dinner and bam! After dozens of ho-hum encounters, you have a ~great~ first date.
Being that I was from New York City and he was from Paris, we’d start out with a year in NYC, then a year in Paris after we got married, and the visa situation would be easier to handle. Since he wasn’t going to be coming to NYC until early October, I thought it would give us time to sort of regroup on our own terms.
You could say that I started ghosting young. It was the summer before my senior year of high school, and I was dating “Sam,” a 16-year-old boy who preferred watching old episodes of Family Guy on DVD to spending time with me. He was cute, but we had nothing in common and I couldn’t deal with his affinity for wearing oversized Red Sox tees. (#Deep, I know.)
