Dating is dated, declared Charles Blow. Hmmm .. good last name for the subject. Sorry for having a dirty mind.
I don’t like the connotation of ‘hooking up’, sounds bit savage.
Professor Kathleen Bogle at La Salle University in Philadelphia who has studied hooking up among college students and is the author of the 2008 book, “Hooking Up: Sex, Dating and Relationships on Campus” says that it used to be that “you were trained your whole life to date. .. Now we’ve lost that ability — the ability to just ask someone out and get to know them.”
Hmmmmm .. Well, I don’t have any social circles .. .. and certainly don’t know a single person who’s trained his or her whole life to date. How boring and pathetic IF she were right.
