Cosmo’s lovably awkward lawyer Bachelor of the Year is back with even more interview gems.Ryan Chenevert, a 25-year-old lawyer in Louisiana, sat down with Hoda Kotb and Meredith Vieira of “The Today Show” to give his thoughts on the modern dating scene.
Chenevert, sex and relationship therapist Ian Kerner and 31-year-old author Debra Goldstein sat down to discuss the controversial New York Times’ op-ed The End of Courtship?
The opinion piece, which Kotb called “depressing,” suggested texting and the rest of the digital age had killed traditional courtship.
Despite modern technology, Goldstein said girls could teach guys to be romantic and follow traditional courtship rules. But Chenevert wasn’t so sure men could pick up on their clues.
“Guys are stupid,” he said. “We don’t get that. You know, some guys are going to text regardless.”
The group also discussed the merits of hanging out in a group versus traditional dating.
And once again, Chenevert had no problem bluntly laying it all out there.
“I’m not a fan of this hang out dating thing because I want to screen the girl before I go and introduce her to my friends,” he said.
