Dating Rules We Should All Live By

Every individual is different. Therefore every couple is different. In fact, you could say that when it comes to dating, there are no rules! That being said, there are a few rules you can stick to that will make your dating life much more interesting.

  1. Keep Text Conversations Interesting

OK, if you’re conversations go like this:

  • Hey!
  • Hi.
  • How are you?
  • Good thanks, you?

You’re doing it wrong. Seriously; only ever text somebody if you have something interesting to say. Making small talk like this is a surefire way to kill any spark. Be intriguing and mysterious with the texts you send. Be funny. Be yourself and don’t be apologetic about it!

2. Date More Than One Person

Who says you have to date one person at a time? Go on as many dates with as many people as you like. How else will you know if somebody is right for you or not? Don’t feel bad for dating other people if you haven’t made anything exclusive.

3. Pay Sometimes

Who says the blokes should pay every time you go out? It wouldn’t hurt for you to foot the bill every once in a while. This will greatly impress a man, and we’re living in a modern world after all!

4. Don’t Get Too Attached

Try not to get too attached to the person you’re dating. You both still need to have your own lives. Living in each others pockets will not be a good idea. Let each other be free to do what you want with your friends and with each other. Don’t stress, especially if you’re not exclusive. Even if you get exclusive, you both need your own lives.

5. Say Yes Last Minute

Many women turn their nose up at invitations they get last minute. Why not just say ‘why not?’ and live a little. You’ll get out, socialise, learn new things...and you might even make an interesting friend, even if you don’t end up in a long term relationship. Check out my date night outfit inspo if you need it.

6. Be Honest if You Don’t Like Them

If you know early on that you don’t like your date ‘like that’, you should be honest. When speed dating in Clapham, you’ll just move on if you don’t like the person sitting opposite you. Don’t lead them on for any longer than you need to. It’s only fair to the both of you that you know where you’re going.

7. Don’t Bother With the 3 Day Rule

Some say that after your date, you should give it 3 days to get in touch. That’s a load of rubbish. If you have something interesting to say, then say it! Men get sick of doing all the texting first anyway.

8. Don’t Jump Into Bed Straight Away

It isn’t usually wise to jump into bed on the first date. If you do this, your date will be less inclined to come back for more. This being said, only you know when the time is right - there is no specific rule to tell you when to do it!

Do you live by these dating rules or have any of your own? Let me know!
