8 Dating Rules You Should Go Ahead And Ignore

8 Dating Rules You Should Go Ahead And Ignore

Dating rules are stupid. Sorry, but someone had to say it!

There shouldn't be rules for dating. Every relationship is different, and following the same advice over and over again, won't always work. 

Think about it. Have you ever waited to text a guy back? Or, declined his first date offer? Have you ever played hard to get? Of course you have. We all have. But, have those games gotten you the guy? Noooo!

Don't get me wrong, following certain dating rules can work (keyword: can). They've worked in my favor before. But only a couple of times, and with guys who turned out to be complete jerks. 

Which leads me to my point: Dating rules are pointless and they don't help you fall in love (at least, not with the right guys). 

Here are 8 dating rules that you should delete from your memory and never use again.

Don't Kiss On The First Date

Why shouldn't you? If the date's going good and you want to kiss him, you should kiss him!

The Guy Should Make The First Move

There's no need to wait for a guy to make the first move. If you're interested, don't be afraid to show it! Plus, guys like a girl who isn't afraid to go for what she wants. 

Never Text Back Immediately

Waiting to text back isn't going to make him like you any more!

The Guy Should Always Pay

Dating is expensive and guys shouldn't always be responsible for the bill (unless they've got it like that). It isn't fair to expect a guy to pay for every meal and activity you do!

Don't Show Too Much Emotion

They say you shouldn't act interested in the guy you're interested in. That makes no sense! Yeah, maybe you shouldn't be confessing your love for him on the second date. But if you like him, you should tell him that. 

Use Social Media To Creep

This might not be a "dating rule." But, it's something people do far too often! PLEASE don't stalk a guy on social media. Trust me, it'll only lead to questions and a false perception of who he really is.

Only Date A Guy With A Good Job

You're young! It takes a while to land that dream job. Not every guy you meet, at this age, is going to be successful. Plus, it shouldn't always be about the job. It should be about the person.

Wait To Have Sex

Hey, at the end of the day, you've got to do what's best for you. Make your own rules and create your own sex timeline. Just be sure you're not being influenced by anyone but yourself.
