Modern rules of dating
The Rule: You meet someone, you like that person, you wait three days before you make contact in hopes of not appearing "too desperate." Do: Maintain some space. And even if you convince yourself this is your new soul mate that you can say anything to, you don't want to scare him or her away by appearing too needy or desperate. We are a generation who loves nothing more than instant gratification. And if your partner is attracted to meanness, well, that's a whole other issue.
Sure, we remember what it was like waiting for dial-up, but now that we can get everything instantly, we never want to wait again. The Rule: Wine and dine at the best restaurant in town, cause you're worth it. There's nothing worse than picking up a planned date and then not having a plan. You don't have to break the bank to impress your date.
Pretty sure your date asked you and not your five closest friends out. And if that date is terrible, well, it beats not doing anything.
Maybe Wednesday's date never called because you were playing too hard to get?
Just like how the things your ex liked are probably not the same as the things your current lover adores. So let's take a glance at the traditional rules of dating and uncover what we should do and what we should ditch. You want to have something to talk about on your first date! If he or she also gave you their number, they want to hear from you. With Tinder and other dating apps, options are at our fingertips, literally. If they ask you out, and you want to hang out with them, don't say no for the sole purpose of "playing the game." Again, there are other options out there.
