This is a vicious cycle, but it works: Women (and men) are confused about dating, because who isn't?
Hoping to get it right, we tune into a show or read a book to teach us "The Rules." And then, maybe, we feel better: We weren't all that bad to start with!
-esque 30-minute "reality" dating program in which host Roger Lodge (loved that guy!
) offered up snarky quips and hilarious commentary about dates that paired up two strangers who were followed around by a camera crew.
In it, three "dating experts": Emily Morse, a sex expert with a radio show in San Francisco; Amy Laurent, a New York City matchmaker; and Julia Allison, who's described on the show as a dating columnist and now lives in L.
A., take on what the producers clearly want us to understand as their greatest challenge: Their own dating lives.
Chalk it up to human foibles, schadenfreude, whatever). These also mostly pitted men and women against each other on something of an even playing field, with a game show feel that made both sexes seem pretty idiotic.
Maybe in some ways this is good, disillusioning everyone about the dating industry: If the experts are so bad at what they purport to know, why should we listen to them at all?
It also highlights so-called non-disparagement clauses — provisions that increasingly cropped up in consumer contracts in recent years that forbid people from saying bad things about a company, including on review sites such as Yelp."Companies that try to include these clauses in their terms are predicting that their customers will be unhappy and will bad-mouth their services,” said Emily Rusch, executive director of the California Public Interest Research Group.
“They should instead focus on making sure consumers are satisfied with their services."As of this week, Master Matchmakers had such a clause in its terms of service, leaving Levine with the impression that he could be targeted with a lawsuit for breach of contract.“It’s been very stressful,” he told me. But I feel like if I let them push me around, they’ll just get away with doing it to others.”Ward, for his part, countered that “if we caved every time someone threatened to bad-mouth our business, we wouldn’t be in business.” Arlene Howard’s phone bill said she made a bunch of calls to Cuba, which she didn’t.
Failing that, take us back to the old days of , when we at least got to make fun of everyone equally instead of whiplashing between stereotypes of women ranging from husband-hungry to sex-crazed to messed-up to mean to men or to the worst of all, sad and pathetic.
Because these depictions of women are as false and one-sided as are any rules of dating.
Can a dating show ever allow a woman to be happy, to be having fun and owning her life and doing what she wants to do, evolving as she does it?
