Every person you encounter who tries to subscribe you to a strict methodology of dating “rules” or “etiquette” is living in the 17th century and should take several seats. The incessant stream of opinions and tidbits of advice can only steer you further away from your own feelings.No one knows your relationship better than you and your partner. If something is bothering you, address it with your partner directly.I see women who continually find men who, for whatever reason, never step up to treat them the way they deserve. I realized that it had very little to do with the men, but more to do with how the women approached dating.
If you can work on your assertiveness and confidence, you will find a relationship with someone who respects you. A man who genuinely wants to spend time getting to know you will put in the effort.6. OK, this isn't a concrete rule, but the point is that you should not accept a date on Wednesday or Thursday for that weekend. RULE 6: After getting a girl's phone number, wait at least two days to call her to avoid appearing desperate. Not to talk about weather, current events, how her day went, etc. RULE 8: If you call a girl and get an answering machine, don't leave a message. Girls, as a general rule, do not return phone calls. Doing so makes it appear as though you are attempting to purchase affection. RULE 15: If a woman disrespects you or your time, particularly early in the relationship, don't hesitate to get rid of her. RULE 16: No relationship is a committed one until both people agree that it is. The harder something is to obtain, the more valuable it is perceived to be. RULE 28: Don't reveal too much about yourself too soon. RULE 11: Girls will test guys to see how much they can skate by with. Speak your opinions, stand by your convictions, and don't put up with excessive amounts of BS. Until then, anything is fair game for both parties involved. It is heartbreaking to see them make the same mistakes over and over again. All too often, I see friends continually devastated by their dating experiences. Don’t give them your power by allowing yourself to feel bad.
