Were You Meant To Date In A Different Century?

Have you ever found yourself at a club or bar, seen two people who have never exchanged one word start grinding to your right, a few women walk out of the bathroom to your left readjusting the gel pads over their breasts in their bandage dresses, and a cocktail server in front of you offering you a “Slippery nipple shot” and thought to yourself I don’t belong in this decade. Or perhaps I don’t belong in this century. I’ve felt that way plenty of times. In fact, I can’t tell you how many times a man has said something to me—either in person or online—that I found utterly offensive, that my friends told me was a perfectly normal thing for a man to say to a woman. What?! How is that perfectly normal if I’m literally considering calling the police on this person? Hey, some of us just were destined for a different time. Were you meant to date in a different era?

You love phone calls

If a man wants to ask you out, he can call you. In fact, you love when people call! You love the formality and intimacy of a phone call. You’re just put off by dates that are planned via text, and you’re always impressed when a man calls you, asks how you are, and states he’d like to take you out (not just “grab drinks some time” but “take you out on the town”).
