I think Drew Barrymore said it best in "He's just Not that Into you."
"I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home, and then he emailed me to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell, and now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. "
Seriously, though. When did it become appropriate to no longer be asked out over the phone, or in person. These days, you're lucky to get a FB chat with these lovely three words.... wanna go out? Is this what dating life is destined to be like? No more late night phone calls getting to know one another.. but rather a text here and there asking, "what's up?" No wonder the majority of the guys i've been out with over the past year have pulled disappearing acts. All it takes is simply not responding to a text.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed this isn't a permanent pattern.
