That update, it appears, effective at cutting down the in-app spam.However, it didn’t necessarily address the spamming activities themselves.(Okay, maybe it’s not quite as easy, but still…) And really, is there a need to text before the date, except to confirm the day before?(Very important: do this) My recommendation is simply to exchange numbers a day or two prior to the date so you can 1) confirm and 2) contact each other the day of in case something goes awry (you need to cancel, you’re running late, etc.). If you think something is reasonable, but nobody else on the planet agrees with you, you’re going to be more effective by finding a compromise point closer to the majority position.

He wants to meet you right NOW and see you naked ASAP. You know as well as I do that women don’t want to be bullied into going on blind dates: “Dear Dan, thank you for your initial inquiry.
