Texting and Dating

By David Wygant


Recently, I received an email that was really disturbing.  

It just seems like the younger generation is so technology-reliant when it comes to dating that they don't even understand the art of communication.  

 I'm going to share the email, then I'm going to tell you why I was so outraged by it.  A 17 year-old kid wrote this to me:

Picture This

By Gini (member)

I'll offer up a preemptive apology to the male members who read this.  

As all of my experience here is based on reading and looking at men’s profiles, I can't attest to whether this problem manifests itself in women’s photos as well. 

We're all adults here, right?  We know that most, if not all, of the people on this site have had prior relationships.  But when I'm on the site looking at a potential match's photos, I cringe when I run across a photo of a nice looking man that has obviously had another person cut out of it.

3 Things Not To Eat on a First Date

By Avery Williamson

So you’ve met someone here on the TangoWire network, and you’re about to meet for your first date. You’ve picked out a nice restaurant…nothing too fancy, nothing too cheap…and you’re on your way out the door. You look great, you’re confident, and you’ve thought of every detail. Fantastic!

But when you sit down and look at the menu, there’s still something you should keep in mind: what NOT to order. After all, you are still trying to impress your date. And nothing says “bad impression” like a shirt or blouse covered with soup stains.

Six Things NOT To Do On A First Date!

Please welcome back guest blogger Heidi as she shares her personal insight on first-date faux pas...

This applies to both men and women. I’m not taking sides this time, but I do think there is some etiquette that should be followed when first meeting someone.

1. Typically when you first meet someone, the date or get-together isn’t that long, so do you really need to bring your cell phone with you?  Unless you have small children at home with a babysitter, leave the phone in your car or turn off the volume and do not take calls during your date. This time was set aside to meet someone new that could potentially be that special someone, so don’t blow it by taking a phone call at the table.  If you feel you must check your phone for whatever reason, go to the restroom to do so.

The first survey question we asked was: What do you think of Soulmates?

Thousands of members responded (thank you!) to this question. The results are below:
