Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again! When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Do not ask us what we are thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun formation, and NASCAR. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Shopping is NOT a sport, and no, we are never going to think of it that way. If we accept that dating is a game, then there are rules to that game. If you know the rules in advance, it gives you a head start. Always let men do the chasing and always allow yourself to be the chooser.If men know the rules by which you are playing, you may change the rules to suit the situation to keep the man guessing. Always stay safe and never risk yourself for the sake of attending a date. Men love a challenge, so feel free to adapt rules and add them as you feel inclined. Gorgeous hair and some lipstick with rags will still turn his head. I probably don’t need to tell you this, but there’s a lot of shitty dating advice out there.
If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done - not both. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle. When my relationships eventually faltered, I’d spend hours online trying to figure out exactly what went wrong.It’s something that so many people do — whether they’re in a relationship or not — and my guess is that it might have something to do with a need to feel in control. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. Christopher Columbus did not need directions, and neither do we. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials. There are things that we make happen that excite, stimulate, create interest and confound. And yet previous generations managed to succeed on a far less complex courtship criteria list.Many arranged marriages work all too interestingly.What happens is that we forget most of them after the age of 21, and then realize we need to relearn them.I wish there weren’t any general rules, but courtship is a ritual. If we just threw ourselves together, then the chances of long term happiness might be compromised. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out.
