Modern dating is complicated and often times confusing. Knowing what to do in many non traditional situations leaves people feeling lost and hopeless in ever finding their true soul mate. While we are all just sitting here trying to figure out what the heck is going on in our love lives. We can take a moment to look at these comics and turn the frown upside down because although dating is hard, and it sucks, finding the humor in the whole process will keep us all sane. And who knows, we might learn a thing or two from being able to laugh at the ridiculousness of it all.
You’re sitting in a restaurant and you watch someone come in the door, immediately they grab their phone, scroll through it looking up every so often, scanning the room for a familiar face, only known from the pictures online. The go to sit at the bar and await their blind date to arrive, will he be as handsome as he is in his profile? Is it all a lie? Do I look as skinny as I do in my pictures? The sheer anxiety can be seen from a mile away.
The Subtext Is Key
Asking someone out comes with a lot of preconceived ideas of what is going to happen. On the first date there may be an end of the night kiss. On the second date a little over the shirt hand action, and by the third it can be implied that you two will be rolling around in the sheets screaming out in passionate joy. But what is also means is getting more intimate on less glamorous levels.
