The Dating Sign: Road Work Ahead

Wouldn’t it be great if there were such a thing as “Dating Signs”?

Stop, in the name of love!

In lieu of direct verbal communication, we could allay all the awkward tension of those first dates by using big road signs to convey what we’re thinking in blunt fashion.

Slow down!

Here’s how it works: each member of the date would stock an assortment of signs he/she anticipates using. At the opportune times, they would be raised to display true feelings. For instance, one could read “You’re HOT!”, another “Please kiss me now.” or “Sorry, you’re not my type.” Wouldn’t such a thing be great? No more hard feelings, just raw forthcoming honesty, unimpeded by imperceptible signals.

  1. You finally added a comments section!

    Quite a concept, but then it would dissolve away all those exciting moments of mystery that often accompany first dates. Acquiring the ability to read people through unspoken words is a learned art.

    Sometimes I wish I could pull out a huge “STOP” sign though 🙂

  2. Dacia! Yay, you’re my first commenter. 🙂

    Yeah, I suppose you’re right. The silent signals are all part of the game of dating. Still, it’s frustrating.
