The Joy of Text: Mating, Dating, and Techno-Relating eBook: Grish, Kristina: : Kindle Store.
In a landscape littered with suggestive emotions and digital come-hithers, a new hazard seems inevitable for potential paramours: sprained thumbs. More than ever, texting has become a conduit for singles to commingle. Texting is a valuable means to help couples connect, says Gail Laguna, vice president of communications for Spark Networks, which includes JDate.
With everyone wrapped up in their careers, stuck at their desks or sitting in traffic on their daily commutes, using a free moment to send a text has become a viable way for people to simply touch base or take it to the next level. All of the speedy key punching isn’t used for just flirtation: 13 percent of mobile phone users have received text or multimedia messages with more explicit sexual content, according to a study conducted in November by Perduco, a Norwegian research firm.
For users under 30 years old, it’s 19 percent. With about 3 billion cell phone subscribers worldwide, that’s enough tawdry text to fill a red light Library of Congress. With a goal of providing an Emily Post-style guide for women using technology in dating, the book urges readers to use texting and other digital means to reflect rather than reinvent who they are. Grish knew she was onto a hot topic when she observed a female friend of hers texting a man at a birthday party.

It’s an interview we did a few years ago with the author of “The Joy of Text. For instance, “dear” is a fine greeting for a letter, but for an e-mail, she says: KRISTINA GRISH: “You know, if you’re just starting a relationship with someone or just starting a correspondence with someone, it’s certainly fine to say ‘hi’ or ‘hello,’ but then I would say within your second e-mail you don’t really need a formal salutation. You can cut right to the fact that you are having an official conversation.

Dating is a stage of romantic relationships in humans whereby two people meet socially with the aim of each assessing the other’s suitability as a prospective partner in an intimate relationship. It is a form of courtship , consisting of social activities done by the couple, either alone or with others. The protocols and practices of dating, and the terms used to describe it, vary considerably from country to country and over time.
While the term has several meanings, the most frequent usage refers to two people exploring whether they are romantically or sexually compatible by participating in dates with the other. With the use of modern technology, people can date via telephone or computer or just meet in person. Dating may also involve two or more people who have already decided that they share romantic or sexual feelings toward each other. These people will have dates on a regular basis, and they may or may not be having sexual relations.
This period of courtship is sometimes seen as a precursor to engagement. Dating as an institution is a relatively recent phenomenon which has mainly emerged in the last few centuries. From the standpoint of anthropology and sociology , dating is linked with other institutions such as marriage and the family which have also been changing rapidly and which have been subject to many forces, including advances in technology and medicine.
As humans societies have evolved from hunter-gatherers into civilized societies , there have been substantial changes in relations between people, with perhaps one of a few remaining biological constants being that both adult women and men must have sexual intercourse for human procreation to happen. Humans have been compared to other species in terms of sexual behavior.
