DATING RULES….thank you to Diane Owens

This is a good questions in my opinion….what are the rules to follow

It's a New Day...

Day 177 Question 177:

Do any dating rules really apply?  What are some that you strongly believe in/strongly disagree with?

 I have written about this topic before.  I am FULL of opinions when it comes to this topic.  Am I am expert?  Absolutely not…but then again who really is????  About 4-5 years ago I became absolutely obsessed with reading articles on relationships and the do’s and don’ts of dating.  I read every rule there was to read and let me tell you…the list was far from short.  Through this experience I realized that a majority of these rules were geared toward women.  So, in this post, I will admit that it is swayed more in the direction of women.  Men (from my personal experiences) seem to be more casual when it comes to dating.  Us women tend to think and analyze and evaluate almost everything (again, not all…a lot though). …

    Rule 1. Personally, I don’t see why the man should pay in this day and age. A woman who expected me to foot the bill on a first date probably wouldn’t get a second.

    There are of course exceptions. If I knew she was short of money but offered I may refuse and this will be fine. If we had some sort of agreement (say, she chooses the place so she pays and the next time I choose so I pay) that would also be fine. I think it is important to make sure that you both know where you stand before it gets that far though.

    The issue here for me is expectation. If you expect me to act like a meal ticket then don’t expect to hear from me afterwards. Fair’s fair after all.

    Rules 2 and 3… in this age of social networking, are they even relevant any more?

    4. Not so sure. I don’t think you can make it a blanket rule. If they both want to and one isn’t pressuring the other then why not?
