A light look at the 5 top rules to dating.

Anecdote - Dating - Ramblings

I don't claim to be an expert on dating, so read this with a pinch of salt. To be honest, at one point I was really rubbish at it, and thanks to these rules, I am a lot better now. It is strange to find out though that there are some dudes out there that are really crap with girls and haven't bothered to fix themselves. So these are the few things I have picked up.

Rule 1.
Do not talk about Star Trek or Star Wars, lightsabers, laser beams, photonic whatever or anything about space. Girls don't usually like this. There are no romantic dramas set in space is there. So unless they mention it first, and trust me its rare to find a girl who likes it, you shall purposely leave this out of conversation.

Rule 2.
Your Mom! Please talk about her as little as possible, mention you have one, since you do exist. Show your respect and move on smoothly. You don't want to sound like a mommy's boy. If you are not sure on what to say, mention you were brought up by wolves or something. Say what you have to to not sound like a mommy's boy. Girls usually don't like mommy's boys. You want to be independent, you have your own life. If you can't manage this then leave and say you have to go because your mom has a curfew.

Rule 3
I can't stress how important this is. On a first date, don't talk about death. Its depressing and ruins the mood. See it has ruined the mood now. If I have to explain more on this then you need help.

Rule 4
Your image, dress the way you want as that defines you. The only thing is be respectful, be clean, and be confident. Nuff said.

Rule 5
Be fun. She will remember the joys of hanging with you more than anything. Girls are more emotional than men and fun is a key ingredient in this 'chemistry' concept they keep talking about. To avoid the 'it lacked chemistry' scene, then think of this little formula, fun + independence = girls   

Well, I am sure there is more to this and this is only a little overview. If you have anything more to add, feel free. Happy dating.

    Make sure you do not spend so much time thinking about what you should do that when the time comes you are too preoccupied with your thoughts to behave in a rational and interesting way. Remember that women are not aliens and you poor (male) mortals have to jump through a few hoops (of our design) before you attain an acceptable level for acknowledging (let alone dating!)

    It's true, always make sure you are in control of yourself. One could add this to rule 4 as part of your image. The one thing I might disagree with though, is jumping through hoops. Apologies already but I find a guy would be more of a challenge if he didn't do so and should only do it as a respectful gesture. Jumping through hoops doesn't show independence and free thought, just neediness and desperation for approval. Do you want a guy who beckons to you call all the time. One might loose interest maybe.

    This is so true, I think I have experienced all of these at some point or another, except the mum thing... thankfully, but I did have a girl freak out on me once because I mentioned BABIES! (I guess they just don't qualify as fun anymore...)
