Dating And Playing By The Rules

Seth going in for the kill. Now that Rach-Rach has broken her engagement, maybe she should get back together with Adam, non?

A few years ago, I designated my friend S as my ‘love coach.’  She who mercilessly dated the gamut, shared her wisdom and guided me through the deep and treacherous waters of dating.  This was during the time of The Rules and He’s Just Not That Into You;  but I am an eternal optimist and romantic.  I won’t allow myself to be jaded by love. 

She provided me with a list of dating rules to abide by when beginning to date a new crush.  This past weekend, we reconnected and reminisced, ‘Whatever happened to the rules?’  Well dear readers, it is your lucky day!  S having been amazing at saving great emails or very redundant at deleting old ones, unearthed a treasure chest of laughs.  These rules, when you think about them ring true, however, should still be taken with a grain of salt. 

1. Always talk on the phone before meeting
2. Give the person a compliment if you are interested (“Oh…you have a nice shirt on tonight”)
3. Share your food with him
4. See what kind of beer they order- Only import…not domestic….Gross
5. If you want a kiss at the end of the night, stroke his arm
6. Never talk about your ex on the first date
7. If you can not picture kissing them in your head…there is no point to the second date
8. Always leave them wanting more.  Never kiss on the first date even though you know you want to mack their @ss bad!
9. No going back to the apartment for herbal tea!!
10. When caught with a speeding ticket, make sure that the police officer hears you say loud enough: “He has a great ass!”  Works like a charm!

Haha.  I think the last one was more about how to avoid speeding violations than dating but we’ll take it.

Do you have any dating rules that you live by? Please share your comments.
