Shall We date?

Today’s segment on Sunrise was about dating do’s and dont’s. Let’s face it, the dating world is a mind field for Miss Manners. Fresh encounters with a new love interest can be a recipe for etiquette disaster, with each person closely monitoring the others every move. There is no such thing as what is right or wrong, but a common value that has been passed down through the ages. We all have a unique perception of the other person in our company. (Especially if you are Alan Pease and can read people via their body language). I will be honest, I hate the word dating! For someone who is somewhat traditional, I find the word to be outdated, misused and fraught with pressure and stress to perform or show our better side and potential false self.

Love Without Intercourse

In a world where so many dating websites place such heavy emphasis on random hook ups and casual sexual encounters (and by the amount of members registered we can’t deny there isn’t a need for them), it is somewhat unique to come across a dating site that doesn’t revolve around sex. In fact, the site I’m referring to, 2date4you.com, is actually dedicated to people who are unable, either physically or mentally, to engage in sexual intercourse. The website, at first glance is modern and surprisingly classy, states that they are “ a dating site that enables people who cannot engage in sexual intercourse to meet and experience love, companionship and intimacy at its deepest level. Sex plays a major role for many of us in our relationships, but what if for some unfathomable reason you found yourself unable to engage in sexual activities with your partner?
