Modern Dating Rules Women Must Follow

Times have changed and so, you can just expect that dating in the modern world has changed as well. So, here are the modern dating rules that every women must follow. By doing so, you can have a more exciting and pleasurable dating experience.

Avoid using any gadget during your date

Nowadays, a lot of women can’t take their hands and eyes off their gadget. They love chatting with their friends and visiting social media sites to see how many likes their photos have. That is not a good etiquette in dating for your date might think that what you have in your phone is more interesting than them to you. 

Be honest

If you are not interested in him, then you should honestly tell him about it. That way, it would not be too awkward for the both of you when you suddenly run across each other on the street. In addition to that, if you think that there is no chemistry between you, then there is no need for you to further waste each other’s time. 

Classic communication still rocks

Surely, there are now messengers, emails and even texts but nevertheless, classic communication still rocks. By classic communication, we mean talking over the phone, where you get to hear each other’s voices. 

The perfect time to follow up

The perfect time to contact him to follow up depends on what mode of communication you prefer. For example, if you want to follow up through text, then 24 hours after the date is ideal. However, if you plan to give him a call, then it would be best for you to wait for a few days first before your follow up. 

More than anything else, when dating, you should let him feel your genuine interest in him.

    I agree that to follow up with someone too quickly makes you appear "needy" for the other person and needy is one of the worst turn off traits to have. But who made the steadfast rule of 24 hours for a text and a few days for a phone call? If you like someone and there is chemistry contact them sooner. If the chemistry is mutual it will be appreciated and is important to keep that alive. Just don't over do it the next time. The constant texting does appear needy and as I said a turn off. Waiting too long however will be received as "Who is this?"

    Hi Jason, I'm sorry but can we PLEASE stop perpetuating ridiculous advice on both men and women about "The perfect time to follow up"...


    There is NO such thing...

    and the American dating rules about: you can't contact her for at least 24 hrs or you shouldn't call him unless his shows interest [or whatever - i'm making them up here]... 

    Where's the spontaneity? 

    Sure, one shouldn't inundate your date with 5 text [unanswered] text messages in the first 24 hrs or anything crazy but can we please stop following rules when it comes to love and dating... no too people are the same and so why bind us all to ridiculous rules...
