What Isn’t Romantic Anymore

We’ve come a long way since the Stone Ages. Especially in the field of romance. Though there are many practices that women wish could be revived, some are best left to lie with our predecessors. So, what isn’t romantic anymore?

Arranged Marriages

No disrespect meant towards cultures that still use this practice, but it is very hard to imagine a marriage without love. Sure some couples lose that flame down the line. However, having to commit to lifelong bond with a person whom you only have a platonic relationship with can make any blossoming beauty shrivel up to a bitter bitch.

Formal Introductions

To clarify, I mean not being able to show interest, let alone talk to each other—at all—without first being formally introduced by a third party or chaperone. Imagine running into Ryan Gosling prima his budding acting career and not being able to say hi. I would chew my arm off.

It may sound as though I’m completely thrash talking the past, but with the bad comes the good. There are a lot of things that modern day men can learn from men of the past. Chivalry, for one. And of course, don’t be afraid to express your admiration when courting or–as we call it now—dating.

Gentlemen, brush out those suits and ties. There are many ladies waiting to be wooed.

    Wow, that was helpful… NOT! I was hoping to get some real insight into what’s not romantic any longer, but formal introductions and arranged marriages? Duh!

    Is there any excuse whatsoever for a girl not to provide a contact phone&txt number considering the numerous methods, including free ones, of getting an anonymous, disposable number?

    If she does not, is she a scammer, or what other light can this be seen in?

      “excuse”? Come on dude, if she likes you and wants to meet you she will give you that information. It’s not that hard to figure out.

      Yes! I hate giving my number out lately because many, many, MANY guys have gone psycho and would not stop texting/calling/harrassing me. It’s scary and traumatizing having to go through that! One guy has literally been calling me for 2 years from different phone numbers each time and won’t stop. I’ve wanted to change my number but so many family/friends/colleagues have that number I’d hate to have to change it because of stalkers. So yes, there is an excuse. Every guy is seen as a potential stalker

        Just don’t lead the guy on. I dated one woman on here who was one of the most beautiful women i’ve ever met and we had one of the most romantic outings you could imagine. I could see in her face she was shocked and angered. She asked me to return and then on the last date said don’t ever call me again but you can email me and I might read it. Of course a guy is going to go insane. Make it unequivocal ladies that you never want to see a guy again in a polite way.

      #ShesJustNotThatIntoYou . Also, Some guys have actually thought I was a scammer BECAUSE I had a texting app. Go figure.

    Never give out your regular phone number.
