I look around at the typical man today and I can’t help but feel disappointment. When did “Oooo! Damn! That ass!” become an accepted way to show a woman you’re interested in her? I’ll tell you when. It happened when Gentlemen died and the Bros were left in charge.
The proverbial needle-in-a-haystack doesn’t even begin to describe the swipe-swipe-swipe-search-shittydate-swipe-swipe-ghosted-quit-deleteapp-waittwoweeks-downloadappagain-swipe-swipe-swipe approach to dating in today’s technology-centric world.
"I met this guy and we had a GREAT time on our first few dates. Then, he vanished! No calls. No texts. Nothing! I was so confused!! What gives with this guy? Was he just bullsh*t? How can I see the signs of this in the future?"
Studies have shown that a woman discovers everything she needs to know about a potential lover from his very first kiss, and any guy who has tried to get to First Base on a date knows it. And it's not just humans who show affection this way. Bonobo chimpanzees kiss, elephants put their trunks in each other's mouths, foxes lick faces — all as signs of affection. But why do humans kiss in the first place, and what's the reasoning behind it — both scientific, emotional, and chemical?
Love has a tendency of sweeping many people off their feet. However, with that rush of emotion, physical attraction, and "connection", red flags can get overlooked. The result is a broken heart, and a misguided thought that they "did something wrong". Many times, the tell-tale signs show themselves early in the dating process... if you are paying close attention.
