A30SD – Whatever Happened to Romance?

Episode 3

I don’t know when it happened, and maybe it’s just me, becoming ever so cynical, but when did romance die?  For real though?  I’ve been on a few dates with this guy recently and everything seemed to be going well.  We went out to a cute spot for cocktails, had dinner at a trendy restaurant and even made dinner together.  Cute right?  And then today, I get this text message: “Let’s have sex at your place on Wednesday.  I should be free around 9 or 9:30.”


Maybe I’m just being overly sensitive, but come on! There are so many things wrong here:

  1. Scheduled sex.  Since when is there a timeline on when to be intimate in a relationship?  I understand that you sometimes need to make time for it, but I have only been on a few dates with this guy.  I don’t even know if I want to be in a relationship with him.
  2. Who says I’m free on Wednesday?  Just because it works for your schedule does not mean that I am available for your booty call!
  3. There is absolutely nothing romantic or flirtatious in this message.  Like I said, we’ve only been on a few dates. This message is both bold and cold.

I miss the days when relationships happened organically.  When you met someone, went on a few dates, got to know each other and sex and intimacy would happen in a moment of passion, not on a scheduled date or time, it just happened.  Needless to say, I’m a little turned off.

Dating apps like Bumble and Tinder tend to remove the romance from dating.  I get it.  I get the convenience, the instant gratification, but for someone looking for a little more than that, they don’t necessarily cater to that demographic.  Alright, frustrated rant over.  Onward to other (better) things.
