Many college students aren’t 21 and can’t order drinks to smooth first-date jitters.

When my dad first asked out my mom, she told him to get lost and started to shut the door in his face.

And a couple of dates became something more: The divorced engineer who always brought flowers and seemed plucked out of a romantic comedy, until I stopped talking long enough to realize he wasn’t talking at all.

Or the policy guy who made me laugh until my face hurt but revealed he’d had a vasectomy in his 20s and would never have it reversed.

But I think it’s because our system of courtship is broken, or at least badly beaten and lying in a ditch somewhere.The absence of body language and expressive tone, however, can make texts difficult to decipher.
