When Tara Met Blog

What comes first, the emails or the date?
What do you prefer?

I've had good and bad with both, so I'm not one to really talk, but it's been the topic of conversation lately with some of my friends, two of whom are experiencing this problem on Match and are not sure which way is best or the protocol of when to end the emailing and bringing it to the next level before things get stale or preconceived opinions are formed.

I've had some nice email exchanges but often find people can hide behind words and be different online. So I prefer just meeting people and deciding for myself, a la Blink. Then again I recently gone on a couple of dates with someone and since we didn't converse before or after our dates on phone or email, it was like meeting with a stranger instead of a friend. So what's the moral of this post I guess there should be a happy medium, a way to connect but not mask or get too comfortable online that you don't have an offline future.

Sexy Stats: 81% of women have gotten the giggles during lovemaking--compared to 51 percent of men. Yet, 35% of men have teared up during lovemaking--compared to 23 percent of women.

Video: Brokeback to the Future lol, this brings in a whole other level to Doc and McFly.

Okay, let me preface my comment with the fact that I met my boyfriend of 5 months on Let me also clarify that prior to my boyfriend, I had communicated and dated all sorts of guys on-line. In addition, I've tried hurrydates, Table for six (singles supper club), other on-line dating services outside of, American Singles, Yahoo, LavaLife...) and the good old BLIND DATE FIX-UP. In the end, communicating for 1 month via e-mail and NOT at all by telephone worked for my boyfriend and I. Yet, who KNOWS if there is such a thing as a perfect communication method?

BTW, loved the Sexy Stats. I'm one of the 81% with the giggles.

Congrats on the "Match" Hiromi, it's always great to hear success stories :) So for the two of you having the emails before the date worked, awesome and good to know.

Giggles? All I ever hear is sobbing, usually the next morning.
