Consider these 10 modern dating “rules” to create a bit of a road map helping you reach your destination of a happy, healthy relationship more efficiently. Before you venture to add someone else to your life, be sure you have cleaned your own emotional closets.Nothing destroys even the strongest of connections as pursuing love from a broken place. If there is someone you are interested in, make the move.“It’s perfectly good etiquette for you to meet your date for the first, second, and third dates.” “Texting is what you do to save time,” Masini says.“Relegating a date to the same method you use to get low bank balances is insulting. I hear a lot of younger people using Facebook to do what they should be doing in person when it comes to romance and dating.” The idea is to use the different ways to reach out as a starting point, but definitely don’t use it as the only way to reach out. If you’re comfortable enough with adding a new date to your personal networking sites, then more power to you.It’s no longer necessary for men to pick up women at their homes.This was largely appropriate in times when women lived at home with their parents and they knew exactly who was coming to their door.Too often we place importance on things that simply hold no meaning. Be you; leave your representative at home on your date.Waiting for him to approach you is no more significant than if you were to approach him. All too often we are so afraid of making a bad impression or their not liking us that we end up putting on a front when we are on a date. There are no rules for when or whom should contact after a date.
The ethnicity of who you date is still an important personal preference, but it is less a fundamental of compatibility. Your dates are digging around in your past before they even shake your hand.
Avoiding any "inebriated" tweeting is also highly recommended!
In the past ethnic differences often meant other significant differences as well - differences in faith, geography, and cultural preferences.
Todays dating culture differs vastly from even five years ago.
Everything from texting etiquette to when to become intimate makes for a sometimes-confusing modern dating landscape.
