Today’s Dating Culture

I don’t get today’s dating.

There’s no wooing. It’s “come over and chill” and “Let’s hang out.”
If that works for you, hey, I’m genuinely happy for ya. As for me, no thank you.

I desire romance. I want to be wooed. I want to be courted. I want sweetness, and butterflies, wine and roses. Actual dates, not just “hanging out.”

I like the way dating used to work, where a man actually picks a woman up, takes her out, gives her a nice, romantic time, brings her home and doesn’t just expect to jump into bed. I know, it’s idyllic. It’s not entirely reality-based, but it sounds so amazing.

I don’t want Netflix and Chill. I’f I’m watching Netflix, I’m probably sitting at home in my jammies with my cat.

A girl can dream.



Hi.  I’m Morgan.  And this is my journey into the dating world as an adult.  At the moment of publication, I’m 35, and divorced.

I was married at 18, and divorced at 29.  It took me a long time to really be ready to date again after such a long relationship, and I find it very confusing.  Most women don’t find themselves new to dating at 35, but here I am.

This will be a place where I’ll put my thoughts, my rants, my raves, and, when I finally start dating again, some not-so sordid details.

I’m really old fashioned when it comes to romance and dating, and the current dating culture makes me feel like Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer.  It all confuses and scares me.

Thanks for coming along on my journey.
