Clearly, the dating game calls for a heaping dose of authenticity. While it seems not everything needs to be said - we don't need to gush everything right away or have intense "talks" from the get go -- we would do well to just be .
Refreshingly honest and forthcoming, in a way that invites others to do the same.
Premiers éléments de datation des industries du Pléistocène moyen (Acheuléen - Paléolithique moyen ancien) de la région pyrénéo-garonnaise : une approche géochronologique pluri-méthodes (TL, OSL et TT-OSL) des sites de Duclos et Romentères The recent development work of the A65 highway has given the opportunity to broaden the corpus of Lower and Middle Palaeolithic open-air sites known in the southern Aquitaine basin.
The sites of Duclos (Auriac, Pyrénées-Orientales) and Romentères (Le Vignau, Landes), discovered in this context, have yielded an abundant lithic record which has been attributed to the Acheulean of Iberian type for the earlier and, essentially, to the Early Middle Palaeolithic for the latter.
I've been thinking a lot lately about the way we communicate, particularly as it pertains to dating -- a relatively new world for me after a decade of serial monogamy, including a marriage.
I've been mired in conversation with friends about the texts and dating app messages and phone calls that get exchanged during this seemingly oh-so-delicate dance we call dating.
"I can imagine it'd create this constant fear and wondering and wanting more.I guarded against potential vulnerability by acting out of alignment with how I really felt.In other words, I sent texts that I just wish I hadn't.And though I attempted to backpedal and just be myself, what was done was done.
Alas, there isn't an "undo" button on a text message. I'm very clear now that acting against my authentic self actually feels way worse than the rejection or disappointment that may have come my way.The careful selection of punctuation marks (periods are often too serious, exclamations too enthused, no punctuation too lackadaisical), the waiting hours to reply to appear busy or cool or appropriately aloof, the excruciating dissection of -- and hanging on to -- each and every word -- is exhausting.
