Rick Grimes finds himself one of the few survivors in this terrifying world.He was a small town cop who had only fired his weapon a couple times but never at anyone and had only ever seen one dead body.Like me, my friend is coming out of evangelical homeschool purity culture.She’s in college now and has recently gained her first boyfriend.most solid example we’ve seen in a nice, neat little twenty-something package: the demise of traditional dating. It doesn’t matter if you’re a girl or a guy, group hangouts, texts and casual drinks “or whatever” have shanked traditional romance and left it dying a slow and painful death for millenials. They just don’t know better…and the ones that do are just sitting back and letting it happen. You can't come to any bodily harm, because you don't have a body! This means that cultural standards will vary widely; what may have been taboo in your generation might be the norm in the one a few generations from now. Life after death doesn't have to be just endless nights of roaming around, clanking ethereal chains, moaning about vengeance. What this means is, no matter how chancy a potential hookup might seem, you have absolutely nothing to worry about! By now you've learned that your fellow phantoms come from many eras; some may be hundreds of years old, or more! Did they see a light at the end of a tunnel, and if so, why didn't they go towards it? You could probably stand right behind them, breath cold air down their necks, and they'd hardly notice.
Of foremost concern, however, is safety, because meeting strangers can also be dangerous. From my grandmother to my mother, you better believe I learned my lessons, either verbally or via the wooden spoon. It's all about hooking up, getting a number, grabbing a drink and getting down.But why now does it seem like it's completely impossible for men to do what I would consider the ‘normal' thing? I think I'm the only single guy I know that actually takes a girl out to a restaurant on a first date. If you take a girl out and show her you're more than some douche looking to just get in her pants, odds are, you're going to get a second date, at least. Treat yourself to a good meal, and if the company is good, why the hell wouldn't you take a girl out to a nice dinner?Call me old fashioned, but a nice dinner is worth the money to get to know someone to some extent. All I know is, the more I look around, the less I see men treating women the way that we're raised to. What happened to pulling out chairs and holding doors?For me, it's not about the money, and I get why people are stingy when it comes to going out with people they don't know. What happened to walking on the outside, closest to the street and all that sh*t? When did it become acceptable to just text a girl, inviting her to come bang? I'm not complaining about those instances, I'm just saying, why have we strayed away from what has been established as the norm?
