I don't use dating apps, but I still manage to get dates the old-fashioned way: meeting a woman circumstantially, asking for her number, and arranging to meet up later. A friend remarked to me that women these days must be so used to men not doing that, that they give up their number out of pure confusion. Which might be true.

“Why yes, I DO come here often!” they figuratively gush. “What a unique and thoughtful question! Here are my digits.”
