Rules when dating
Not only is it annoying for both parties (especially if you're hungry), it reads that you're not respectful of your date's time. You want the date and your location to be a reflection of you, a place where you feel comfortable and your date will be at ease too.It doesn't have to be the hottest or most expensive restaurant in town.That's like two dozen long-stem roses on Valentine's Day — it's cliché and unimaginative.With social media, you have the resources to find out your date's interests before the big night.
After all, your friends are a reflection of you and have probably known you much longer than the person you're dating.Ditch: Assuming that your friends' advice is the be-all and end-all."Do this." "Don't do that." It seems like every time you log in to Facebook, flip through a magazine, gossip with your friends, or text your mom, there it is: dating advice you didn't ask for. Rules of dating are hard to define because every relationship is different. I'm not saying you need to go out of your way to be unavailable to this person, but not always being at their beck and call proves you have a life outside of them, which will make you more attractive. Playing hard to get shouldn't mean hurting the other person. With a plethora of advice out there, how do we decide which advice to do and which to ditch? Only you can really decide what works and what doesn't. You're a whole person, and you should be looking for another whole that you mutually complement, challenge, and bring out the best in. Have a sense of humor but not always at your date's expense.
If you can cater your evening to something you'll both enjoy, you'll have a great time.
The Rule: Always ask for your friends' advice before you have any contact with your date. If this date turns into something long-term, of course it's important for your significant other to get along with your friends.
