What was once explainable using a single digit binary code now requires the decimal system. Looking from the outside in, on the other hand, gives shape to the confusing and convoluted dating culture that we have created for ourselves.Here are the more easily recognizable stages: Regardless of whether you met on the street, in a coffee shop, at your yoga class or in the park, the first date tallies up to one thing: either a successful or failed one-night stand. Don't get me wrong, I am on my phone and am always on social media as much as the next millennial. and add in the fact that someone is probably going to tweet about it later makes it 10x more complicated.

These are only just a handful of questions that run through our minds when we become the least bit interested in someone.Everyone has been in this situation before, so that leads us to believe it's going to happen over and over again (even though the person you're talking to is probably the sweetest person ever).You managed to black out sometime in the middle of it all and can't figure out whether the person was the best or worst sex of your life. You have officially dubbed him/her, or have been dubbed, worthy of sexual pursuit. In this stage, it isn't recommended that you refrain from calling the person or see him/her without drinking heavily or taking drugs – it may be awkward.I mean, you've only been intimate a dozen times or so… This is the first stage when you actually matter to the person more than any other slab of meat would.It doesn't matter what the initial intentions are – not as if you know what the other person's intentions are anyway – on the first date you're either sleeping together or not.Depending on the results of this stage, you'll move on to stage 2. It turns out that you and I (but mostly you) are criminals, as it is apparently illegal to lie in your dating profile.A law written in…wait for it…1984 makes it a federal offense to … We all think this more times than we'd like to admit. However, we can't fail to admit that this has made dating a little more complicated than it was in the first place.
