Modern day dating dos and donts
I'd much rather send it in the form of broken sentences with ‘U' and ‘2' instead of actual words.” I've known of a broken engagement ending this way, as well as a month-long romance. If someone says “I love you” while intoxicated, it's not necessarily something to take seriously.

While it could be said that maybe a guy isn't all that interested if he gives a girl a high five at the end of the date, I have known for a fact of guys using this technique when they did hope to woo the girl.
If a guy is out with a girl and wants to show her how he feels, a high five is not the way to go. A high five from a guy could result in a slap in a face from a girl, or worse, no second date to redeem yourself.

Elizabeth faced this conflict without text messaging, television, and the computer to contend with.
