It is it acceptable to actually date a guy who asks you out via the Internet?

Eva Longoria Parker may have only been off the market for the last three years while married to Tony Parker, but she’s living in a whole new world now — one in which social media sites like Twitter and Facebook have taken over. Will she have to say hasta la vista to good, old-fashioned dating techniques when she’s ready to start meeting men again post-divorce, or should she start accepting invitations from men like Dane Cook via the Internet?

Granted, Dane’s ‘proposal’ was pretty shoddy. “Is it too soon to ask Eva Longoria if she’s ready to date?” the comedian asked his Twitter followers Nov. 26.  “I’d like to take her to dinner, a divorce and then a movie.”

But if Dane, 38, had genuinely been asking Eva on a legitimate date, should she have accepted? Is asking someone out via Facebook, email or Twitter socially acceptable?

My answer here is ‘yes’ — but I have my reservations when it comes to using social media as a dating practice. Sure, it’s modern, but I definitely prefer to be asked out the old way — via phone call or face to face, as there’s something more personal about it. Even a text will do! But when a guy DM’s (that’s Twitter speak for ‘direct message) me asking if I’m free Friday night? I’d be less than impressed.

Would Eva be a fool to turn down a date with Dane simply because he asked her via the web? Heck, no! But would I prefer to be asked out in a more personal way? 100%. Wouldn’t you be?

Would you or have you gone out with a guy who asked you for a date via Twitter or Facebook? Let me know below, HollywoodLifers!
