I'm new to all this. Dated a nice girl for 2 months and we both decided to just stay friends. Didn't hold hands once, and a friend of mine told me I should at least do this by the 3rd date. What do ya'll think? Like I said, new to all this. I wish there was a manual that told me about this sh*t but like all my friends and I are learning too and we in our 20s (well not me yet but soon lmao). And another question for you: what's the difference between online dating and traditional dating? Approach - wise. I've heard for online dating you barely know them, so take it slow with the intimate physical contact, and for traditional dating once you confess you've already had a history before that so it's okay to jump right in and you're basically official right away. Ofc it depends from person to person but I wanna know what you guys think.
