Rules for relationships and dating

The process of actually finding your ideal partner can be even more of an arduous process challenge.Especially when so many conflicting sources spew outlandish advice for dating. If you want to call the next day after a date DO IT!This is why I have comprised a few anti-rules to dating. If you get asked out the day of for a date, you have no plans, and you actually want to see this person then why the f*ck not? #Live Your Life As a friend, I don't mind listening to relationship problems and offering a bit of advice, however the issue arises when it becomes an ongoing practice.Because let's be real, at the end of the day no one really knows what the hell they're doing.“Never kiss on the first date.”“Wait a x minutes before responding to a text message so not to seem too eager.”“Let him make the first move.”“Wait at least three days after your first date before following up.”“Wait (insert arbitrary amount of time here) before having sex.”“If he asks you out last minute that means his other plans fell through and you're a backup.”We have all heard some variation of these rules. If you and your partner are in disagreement, try to keep the details of that problem between the two of you. 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. Speaking of texting, if you don't do it, you might want to learn ... Especially if you are returning to the dating scene after a long haitus.

"If I can reach you on Facebook, can text you or tweet you - there's no mystery. It's just instant hook-ups and contact and everything's last minute," says Schneider. "Women are texting guys in the middle of the night, back and forth for hours, and they're not getting dates.

Until then, it will just be the same guy with a different name.3.

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.

Avoiding any "inebriated" tweeting is also highly recommended!
