“There’s a very strong disconnect between men and women,” added self-described “romance artist” Zan Perrion.

“We’re all hyper-connected online and yet we’re fundamentally disconnected.” That gender essentialism may help sell books on how to decipher the behaviors of the “opposite” sex, but this is 2013—nobody buys books anymore.

magazine convened a panel of pickup artists and dating coaches to discuss the state of seduction.

“Technology has changed, but the difference between men and women and the dating philosophy does not change,” co-author Sherrie Schneider said.

According to the study, the majority of single men and women are also in agreement that “texting has made dating more ambiguous.” The old courtship model—where the man pursues until the woman fends him off or acquiesces—is dead (and good riddance), but a new romantic script has failed to emerge. Under the gender-essentialist model, the man would text a woman; the woman would field the advance, and the man would keep texting until she either agreed to a date or blocked his number with the phone company.

That script pits men and women against the other based on perceived gender differences.

Brooke, 24, told Refinery29 that after going on a date with James in November of 2015, she wasn't really feeling the chemistry, and their age difference was kind of a deal-breaker for her.

"I didn't know how old he was prior to the date, and he mentioned how he was in his early to mid-30s," she tells us.

A slight rift emerges in the crucial issue of who should text first after a date: Men are a little more likely to say the woman should text first, while women are more likely to say the man should text first.

But the majority of men and women surveyed are in agreement: It doesn’t matter who texts first.

Yes, of course you should be your goofy, amazing, weird self, and have confidence in dating, but as I've gotten back into dating over the last few year I've been surprised to find how many "rules" there are.
