Going Dutch? Dating in 2014


Guests: Elizabeth Tannen, Daniel Post Senning, Steven Petrow

[From the Radio Times archive] Who should pick up the tab on the first date? In a recent survey of 1000 people in straight relationships, 77% of respondents said that men should pay. Surprised or do you agree? In this hour we talk about dating in the 21st century – what’s changed and what’s stayed the same. We’ll get advice on navigating online dating and text message breakups from guests writer ELIZABETH TANNEN, whose blog is “Dating in the Odyssey Years,”  DANIEL POST SENNING, author of Emily Post’s Manners in a Digital World: Living Well Online, and STEVEN PETROW, who writes the “Civilities” column for the Washington Post ans is the author of Steven Petrow’s Complete Guide to Gay and Lesbian Manners. Marty spoke with them earlier this year.
