7 Do's and Don't's of Modern Day Dating Etiquette

Provided By: 

In Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, eighteenth-century men and women courted each other by attending balls and writing letters. Today, men and women court each other by signing up for match.com and sending text messages. One of the main obstacles in Pride and Prejudice is that Mr. Darcy has too much pride to express any of his feelings to Elizabeth Bennet. Elizabeth faced this conflict without text messaging, television, and the computer to contend with. Just imagine if Mr. Darcy had tried expressing his feelings in a text message (and no, I'm not suggesting a modern-day update to this classic). The romanticism in a text message would have been lost, sending Elizabeth into the arms of (gasp!) Mr. Collins.

Nowadays, technology is aiding in the demise of many relationships before they even get started. Because the cell phone, computer, and other electronics are such a big part of people's lives, they become a big part of the dating scheme. People have become so dependent on technology that they don't know how to communicate with prospective dates other than through the cold touch of a keyboard. Because there is no formality with dating anymore, men and women are treating any outing with a potential significant other with the same casualness they would use on a friend.

While we may never be able to get back to the exact romanticism of yesteryear, we can at least try to make dating a little more special.

Here are 7 do's and don't's of modern-day dating:

Fist Pump

Do Not "High Five" or "Fist Pound" Someone on a Date


The film When Harry met Sally claimed that men and women can never really be friends because the "sex part always gets in the way." This new "high five" technique with casual dating has made it so that the sex part will never really come into play at all. While it could be said that maybe a guy isn't all that interested if he gives a girl a high five at the end of the date, I have known for a fact of guys using this technique when they did hope to woo the girl. If a guy is out with a girl and wants to show her how he feels, a high five is not the way to go. Even if you aren't ready for a kiss, do not high five a girl. Simply say, "This has been great. Let's do it again," and leave it at that.

A high five from a guy could result in a slap in a face from a girl, or worse, no second date to redeem yourself.

Do Not Breakup via a Text Message


If you've been going out with someone for at least a couple of dates, you owe them a phone call. The text message is the coldest form of communication because it says, "I'm too much of a coward to dial seven numbers and listen to your voice. I'd much rather send it in the form of broken sentences with 'U' and '2' instead of actual words." I've known of a broken engagement ending this way, as well as a month-long romance. Either way, not cool.

Alcohol is Not Progress; It's Just Alcohol


If someone says "I love you" while intoxicated, it's not necessarily something to take seriously....
