In the July Newsletter of One Question – Is Respect Obsolete, this is what Dennie Smith from Old Style Dating had to say.
“I believe that people now accept disrespect in dating as the norm, when it should not be that way. Social media-modelled dating apps and services have not helped with this. Hidden behind a screen, people can show little courtesy to those they are talking to, they can jump ship without any explanation when something supposedly better comes along. Why give the courtesy of explaining that the chemistry is not there for you to the prospective partner, when they are so many others at one’s fingertips that it feels necessary to expediently move through as many potential partners as possible? Ghosting is a natural product of the promise to “log on, meet now” by many online agencies.” – Dennie Smith
