A Guide to Australian Etiquette
It's no secret that the rules of romance have been revolutionised and many are turning to technology to find their life partner. With various apps and social media platforms, dating in the digital age can often be a minefield. So what is considered acceptable in order to catch someone's attention and potentially their heart? Apps such as Tinder and Bumble; and social media have changed the dating world. According to a new survey by Huawei , which asked Australian singles, it's far more acceptable to snap a selfie on a date than it is to send a quick text or email. And although there are some boundaries that shouldn't be broken, more than two-thirds of young singles think it is acceptable to use your mobile phone when on a date and nearly a third of people would snap a selfie with a date. It seems showing your date photos on your phone is fine too with nearly half of single Australians admitting that they are okay with it. Almost 50 per cent of Australian singles would show photos on their phone to their date. Less than half of respondents check out a date afterwards and 66 per cent prefer a group date because it's considered a relaxed environment and less likely to lead to an awkward silence.
Modern dating is a mindfield. It doesn't feel particularly feminist or woke to ask questions like 'Why hasn't he texted back yet? The truth is, in a world where we all date via Tinder, a lot of that old school ideology about relationships is just that: old school. It's outdated and not really relevant; but a lot of the time we're still subconsciously buying into it. So, we're rounding up the six dating 'rules' that you need to rethink—whether it's assuming that the guy should make all the moves or stick to the 'no sex on the first date rule', consider this official permission to liberate yourself. We tend to think of dating as a game of cat and mouse, where men pursue and women are pursued.
