“There are three possible parts to a date, of which at least two must be offered: entertainment, food, and affection.
It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection.
As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately.
When the affection IS the entertainment, we no longer call it dating.
There’s no need to be in the dark when it comes to the right way to treat women.Some men do this too, but more often than not, they just don’t bother to write back.Well, unfortunately, you are apparently more courteous that most.I thought I would share with you an e-mail conversation I had with a website visitor who was sick and tired of the lack of etiquette on dating websites. In my experience, on dating sites men do not feel the need to be courteous because there are no repercussions or accountability for not doing so.Maybe it will help you if you’ve found yourself or someone you know in a similar situation. Often when I contact a man whose profile I like, he doesn’t even bother to answer.
