Guests: Ruthie Dean,
It used to be that if you wanted to ask a girl out, you walked up to her door with a bouquet of flowers. When telephones began to grace every home, a simple phone call became acceptable. But in today’s culture, it seems that anything goes. Even texting has become the norm for starting, ending and sustaining relationships — or worse — non-relationships. Ruthie Dean, coauthor (with her husband, Michael) of the new book Real Men Don’t Text, thinks that our standards have sunk too low, and it’s time to reclaim them.
