As we all know, dating comes with a lot of rules that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all. Some of them are spot on, some of them don’t really have any point, and there are those that fell out of practice. So, regardless of whether you are a member of the biker dating scene, or prefer going out cowboys or widowers, here is a list of rules you should no longer follow.
Well, if you are looking for a fling, having fun with someone you have nothing in common with can be amazing. However, if you want something more meaningful, you should look for someone who shares your values and goals. Otherwise, you will always end up with butt heads and because of all those differences, you will drift apart.
Don’t make the first move
Several decades ago, women had to obey this rule and let guys come to them. Luckily, times have changed and now we are free to make the first move without being scared that we will seem desperate or easy. Moreover, this gesture is considered a sign of confidence nowadays, so if you like a guy, just go for it.
Be irresistible to everyone
Sounds exhausting, right? Which woman wants to be perfect 24/7, constantly trying to make herself irresistible to every single person? Instead of focusing on everyone else, focus on your interests, hobbies and try to become the best version of yourself. One day, a person whose personality and tastes match yours will come along. It really doesn’t matter if someone doesn’t like you, as long as the right people do. After all, it is all about quality, not quantity.
Make a list of things you’re looking for in a partner
Don’t get us wrong, you should have standards you must stick to, but looking for a partner who checks all the boxes on your list might be close to the mission impossible. Instead, be flexible about it. If he checks most of them, who cares if he doesn’t know anything about French wine, hasn’t seen your favorite movie or is not spontaneous? If you’ve clicked, nothing else matters.
