Welcome to our site on dating, and all of the communications and miscommunications that occur seemingly endlessly. Communicating face to face is hard enough much of the time!
 
Technology should help communications but clearly in dating often does not! Just think of how easy it is to misread a text or email or facebook message, and then throw dating into the mix to make it worse! Yowser!
 
At least in person you have body language, tonality of voice, and far more for your "gut" to analyze. With electronic communications it is so much more difficult!
We concentrate on the Electronic or "E" part of dating here, although we cover other topics as well.
 
Take your shoes off, put your feet up, and stay a while!
 
We also love your questions and feedback.

Welcome to PlentyEDating.com

Couple TogetherWelcome to PlentyEDating where we hope to help with the more modern aspects of dating. You can poke around and read more about us, but let’s just say we are a male and female duo, best friends since we were in diapers, but both (most of the time) single.

We write about dating topics. We are experts at dating, or at least have done it seemingly forever, and hope to eventually meet the perfect mate and live happily ever after.

We write primarily about communications in dating using technology. That used to just mean the telephone. These days it is much more complicated.

Here are just a few of the topics we will cover.

Online dating: Almost all women claim they hate it, and most men fail miserably and hence hate it. Ladies, your knight in shining armor may be showing up online instead of on a white horse these days so “adjust” your fairytale to modern times. And guys, the “secret” as if there really is one, is send out 5-10 messages a day, in other words “work it!”

There is a hell of a lot more of course, such as getting ride of overused lame phrases in your profile (“love to travel” and “work hard and play hard” and “enjoy long walks on the beach”) and removing any hint of desperation (men) and of being “damaged” and wary from previous relationships (women). And guys, no shirtless pictures! Seriously, women hate them!

Texting: It’s here to stay. You gotta do it. Whether you are communication with a 60 year old grandpa or grandma (who texts with her grandkids) or an 18 year old college freshman, you need to get the basics.

Social media: Yup, a lot of relationships start on social media. And even if they don’t, a lot of communications, whether advertent or inadvertent, happen via social media. We have commercially written books on social media and spend a fair amount of time there like most people.

Speed Dating: It works, it’s fun, and it just might be your cup of tea. It's new(ish) although technology may or may not be involved.

Checking out your potential date online: are they single? Are they psycho? Do they look ok or are there major warning signs? A quick google and look in social media is cool – an in depth search borders on stalking.

Like it or not, technology is here to stay in our lives and that includes dating. It is changing rapidly, and we aim to keep you up to date on what you need to know.

Just the basics for success. No cutting or bleeding edge stuff here – we’ll leave that for the teens!
