The Role of Social Media in Modern Dating

I’ve gone to unique places I otherwise never would have known existed, thanks to going on a date with a local guy. I’ve gotten great travel recommendations and had wonderful experiences, thanks to guys who know their area far better than I do! One of my best dates in Australia went something like lunch and a walk around the marina, 4WDing on the beach, a sunset walk to see kangaroos on the coast, and a homemade dinner. I mean, is that not the perfect Aussie first date?!

I find it exhausting and annoying doing small talk in message conversations – for me, after a few messages, I can usually tell if I’ll vibe/get on with a guy, and want to meet in person. As I’m likely leaving their town soon, I also literally don’t have time to do the back-and-forth messaging for days to arrange something. I’d much rather meet up in person and go on a date – I like when guys initiate this, but I also initiate going on a date a fair amount, too.

However, dating apps can also be very draining and irritating when you travel

No, not every date is going to selata tГ¤tГ¤ sivustoa be a great one. This is the same on the road as it is in real life. You’ll go on dates with people who you don’t connect with, who want different things than you do, who give you the ick or you find annoying. It’s life.

Whether you’re in town for the night and looking for a hookup, or just wanting to go on a date and see what happens, be honest about that!
