I think that this article is a good indication that indeed trends are changing. The paradigm is shifting towards a more efficient smorgasbord of options, allowing one to be more exact in exactly how they view the world. We must never lament the fact that somehow "traditional" dating is no longer in vogue. The same with child brides.

Romance, imagination and the anticipation is missing.

So -that-'s the problem! I've been looking for ladies, but there are simply no ladies or gentlemen anymore, just a bunch of teenagers and young adults!

I know being casual and relaxed is what people find more comfortable, but I'm stuck on the other end; being polite and personal comes naturally to me, and I find texting and facebook distancing and hard to read emotionally.

I've had to "break up" with two people who thought we were dating, whereas I thought we were just friends... it's confusing! I'm so glad I'm married now... much less stress.
