Not really dating, but it was really surprising to me at first.On first date split the cheque and you split for ever.But then, I think I'm one of the lucky few who get to start a relationship like that!!
We met through a "sports group", so we had something in common.
He caught my eye at a weekend event, so I asked him out for coffee, completely socially, simply to see if the catching of my eye would lead to any sparks. A couple of weeks later after some texts and emails, and another couple of casual meetings, I asked him to be an exclusive couple to see how that went.
I want to start a revolution, and give happy singles a voice. Do you think there's a dating scene, or the culture is to settle down asap because everyone else is? OK, we have added each other on facebook but that was really just so we could perv at each other's profiles - no status changes have taken place.
A dating culture would be a nice thing in NZ, it's hard enough meeting people without the pressure that if you ask someone out on a date you're now going together.
" My question is: Why and how on earth could or would you have sex with someone who days, maybe even hours before, you didn't know? I don't believe that I've ever been on anything that could be considered to be a "date" until after a relationship has already begun.
However, using technology (email, MSN, text/phone etc) to get to know someone well enough to consider a relationship is something I tend to do.
To me, dating is just getting to know someone, hanging out and having a good time, perhaps a little flirtation and the like.
Dating may lead to a relationship but they're certainly not hand-in-glove like a lot of people seem to think they are in NZ. The idea that you're with someone from the word go is off. Much better I think to get to know people, decide if you like them and want it to go further and then go from there. I dont think there has to be the definitive "now youre in a relationship, now youre not" that people seem to look for.
