To have the sex or not to have the sex in 2015?

With social media, texting and swiping, courtship has turned on its side... So, is dating really dead? I mean, what's the first hook and line? Well, it all begins with flirting and here's how it's done, according to Buzzfeed... and if you don't consider Buzzfeed an authority on pop culture and in this case, dating, then you're dismissed! That is because I too held onto my 'Guide for Dating Etiquette' and it never got me anywhere. Now - if you're still with me, roll'em!:



and



 No wonder you poor guys are confused:



If this is flirting, I'm willing to work on it, but I refuse to tell my imaginary grandchildren "if it weren't for that  Emoji you wouldn't be here."

Next up, another option trending big in Japan, to the point experts say it's endangering the global economy... It's where young people are simply opting out of relationships due to an emerging phych-trend called called "celibacy syndrome."

I think we can all relate ... And who cares if it's ruining the global economy?! It's simply a shame considering they're such bright, beautiful people.

Overall, I think Vogue demonstrates dating best with their 73 questions series, in the context of getting to know someone. It's fast fun and to the point! Haven't seen it? Well, Olivia Munn and Victoria Beckham are both on the list. Even SJP, whom I met in August.

I would prefer this method. In fact, if you ever see me out in public and would like to get to know me, even as a friend, please, just approach me, or anyone for that matter. Because if it all comes down to Emojis, texting, and swiping because I'm not a swiper nor a 'swipee,' it looks like I'm going to be single forever and that's okay I can rock "celibacy syndrome" like nobody else.

So, FIRE AWAY!
