Modern sense of "disembodied spirit of a dead person" is attested from late 14c. Most Indo-European words for "soul, spirit" also double with reference to supernatural spirits.
Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.
I am getting terribly uncomfortable just thinking about it.
RD: From your experience, do you think dating sites can be at all useful for girls? I know people who have had great successes with online dating! I have a strong preference toward meeting people in person FIRST, instead of online first. RD: How did you eventually end up meeting the guy you ended up marrying?
RD: If there are guys looking to actually get the attention of a girl on these dating sites, do you have any advice for them? AW: We lived across the hall from each other our first year of university.
Anonymous Woman (AW): I can’t remember the exact year I signed up… Actually, now that I think about it, that was how most of the messages I got started.
I don’t know, maybe some girls might think of that as a compliment but personally, I would have preferred a simple message like, “Hey, would you like to talk?
Words on a page can only tell you so much and often, they are not the best “first impressions”.
