I strongly believe that when a man is into you, he’ll WANT to text you all the time. But then I have people telling me, “Well maybe he’s just super busy and it’s not the first thing on his mind! when I’m SWAMPED at work, I always still have time to look at my phone at least once to reach out to someone I like. ” I think when a guy doesn’t reach out to a girl he says he likes, it means he honestly just doesn’t care. What are the pitfalls — and why might it be better than IRL dating?

But I had a sneaking suspicion that this 21st-century way of dating might actually be stunting our personal growth.
Dating, as we once knew it, feels pretty much over. “Laid-back guy, who likes sports and craft beer, just looking for a girl to have fun with” — you and every other man, apparently.
