Men rule of dating
It’s far more fun to allow a natural mysteriousness that comes with slowly getting to know someone rather than overdosing on their Facebook status updates from the last five years. These days more relationships start from what were once casual affairs—meaning that the sex came before anything else.
While there is nothing wrong with this per se, it does complicate things when we introduce the hormone surge from physical intimacy that can sometimes cloud our vision. While marriage and children is just as much a modern concept as a traditional one, it’s important not to approach every single date as though you are interviewing a potential life partner. Ultimately the term “rules” implies that there is only one right way to date; something which I do not subscribe to.
You must maintain a life that is entirely your own and offers you support outside of a relationship. I totally get the hunger to know someone better, especially at the beginning of a connection.
Nothing is creepier, however, than stalking a potential mate on social media. While this may not seem all that modern, it be when taken in context of current trends.
Getting wasted on the first couple of dates is still a major no-no.
There are very few things that are as bad a red flag as seeing your date get totally pickled on the first date.
Expect to split the bill, but accept if the other party offers to pay for the whole thing.
Sadly, the days in which guys were expected to pay the entire date are over.
