6 Dating Rules That Shouldn’t Exist Anymore

Saying you “had a nice time”

Well, if you had at least a pleasant time, say that. And thank him. But, if you didn’t like the guy, don’t let him live with the delusion that you do for the night. Don’t let him go home and dream about you all night. Don’t get his hopes up. Tell him right there and then–as uncomfortable as it may be–that you don’t see it going anywhere, and that you didn’t want to waste his time.

    Hmm, jealousy is a huge red flag.  Run the other way!  Let’s not play games here – anybody will think you want sex if you invite them to your place alone.  If you’re not ready to have sex with him yet then don’t play with his head by inviting him to your place alone.  It just sends a message.  Have one or two family members there if you must.

    I disagree with the the ex thing.  If things did not end well in your last relationship and you still harbor some resentment, it will be obvious to your date.  The last thing a guy needs to think is that you’re not over your ex and that he’s now going to be punished for whatever this dude did.  He will exit stage left immediately.

    As for wanting a jealous man that can work against you as well. It’s good that he’s into you, but a man too jealous can turn out to be possessive. Can you say stalker?
