LOS ANGELES, April 6, 2013—In the dating world, nothing limits people like self-sabotage. Technological advances have only made things worse.
A recent party at a club revealed smart phone, self-destructive behavior by far too many women. Men are guilty of this behavior as well, but the women are far worse. And evidence would suggest the mistakes being made are generational, not cultural.
The men wanted to approach the women in the club. Yet they were all chained to their cell phones. Some people pretend to be on the telephone to avoid talking to undesirables. Yet these women were using their phones. Some were talking. Others were texting.
A few of them were looking at internet articles or pictures. Those pictures were ones they had just taken of themselves. In fact, some of them were even looking at pictures of themselves taking pictures. Others were playing games, with the irony that many angry chicks like playing “Angry Birds.”
Some were happier chick birds tweeting on Twitter and opening Facebook. They wanted everybody to know their most recent updated “status.”
Cell phones have become the new wedding rings. Women with cell phones in their hands are unavailable.
The music in the club was loud, forcing the women to practically shout into their telephones. Eventually, some of the women put down their phones for a brief moment. A couple of the guys and I walked over to them and began to make conversation. I inquired why one of them had such an intense look.
The girl was upset because her female friend was slow to get back to her. They were trying to find a cool party to go to.
My confusion stemmed from the fact that we were at a party in a club that was filled with tons of people. I inquired what she was looking for in a party. She left me dumbfounded when she claimed that the whole point of going to a party or club is “to have fun and meet a cool guy.”
Seriously? For realzies? Are you bloody kidding me?
Ladies, put down the cell phones and start living life. To get all dressed up in the little black dress makes no sense if the evening is going to be spent in a corner chained to a cell phone.
Forget the status updates. All the social networking will not change anti-social behavior. Your status is “boring.”
Gadgets can be a means to an end, but should not be the end itself. Using a dating website is fine if the purpose is to actually meet people in real life and date.
Using a cell phone or internet device to find a party is fine. Yet once arriving at the party, the gadgets have done their jobs. Now real, human interaction has to take over.
Some of the women at this party complained how hard it was to meet a guy. They wanted to know why guys did not approach them.
The guys tried. The girls were just buried in their “smart phones,” doing dumb things.
Some of them even went on Facebook later to say the party was “lame.” These were the same girls updating their statuses and taking pictures of each other taking pictures.
As for the guys, all we could do was shake our heads in disbelief.
