The art of waiting...

Look around at a restaurant or in a mall and you'll see people waiting... But you can't really tell because we are so plugged in that if a person has to wait more than 45 seconds the smart phone comes out and they are instantaneously entertained.

It makes me wonder how this has changed things. I was sitting here waiting without my phone out and I suddenly felt awkward. You start to feel like you are doing something wrong.

What happen ended to people watching? How much can you learn by watching? We watch tv to watch people... Why not do it live anymore?

Dating history and two references please

When you make big decisions in you life most things require a lot of paperwork. Buying a house, a car, or applying for a credit card a complete stranger reviews your life and your references. The same thing happens applying for a job; you supply a job history and personal references.

However the most important things people do in life are not scrutinized with paperwork. Anyone can make a baby when most of them shouldn't. There is no application, no background check... Nothing.

Another shocking decision is deciding to date someone. Sure in the world of online dating you have a profile, but its just advertising. Exaggerated and half truths. But there are no character references.

Would it be wrong to ask for a dating history and references? Or informative?

Something to think about...
