These days the dating game has changed and a lot of men and women play games. I know sometimes it makes sense people in relationships tell you what to do and you think they know best as they have a partner. But they aren't always right, and here are some do's and dont's for dating
Rule number 1 Don't use your past to fear commitment- Everyone is different and the next guy/ girl you meet is not going to be the same as the last one you dated so give them a chance.
Rule number 2 Don't try pretend not to care so they will care more- I've heard people say you wait for someone to text or call you after you have just met. Usually a few days. It's not something I would recommend. If you meet a girl Friday night and don't plan on texting her until Sunday she might go out and meet someone else Saturday night.
Rule number 3 Don't try to make someone jealous- By flirting with someone else you might not just make them jealous you might also make them think that you're not interested in them but in the other person, and they may move on.
Rule number 4 Go on dates- You may have heard it's a good idea to invite a potential partner to a social event with lots of people, that way if it doesn't work out its easy to ditch them and carry on. However, if you go on a one on one date you can get to know each other better.
Rule number 5 Do make exceptions- Ok, so you shouldn't alter what you want, but in the beginning it is good to make exceptions. Say the guy you like isn't Prince Charming. He may have some little thing that bugs you, but it may work out. Like guy I once met who I found out liked camping. I like 5 star hotels. I was willing to give him a chance. It didn't work out, but at least I can say I gave him a chance.
