After Steve Harvey's book, and much anticipated movie, many are still left with questions concerning dating nowadays. I, myself, went through scrutiny with disagreeing with some of the "old" rules. I didn't think they applied to me. I felt that a person, or persons, involved with each other that decided to take the relationship to a more intimate step should make the decisions--not some rules for a game that people are tired of playing. It's hypocritical to say, "I don't want to play games", then to 'make someone wait 90 days' to make sure they stay. Or to judge someone else for being intimate on the third night. Really?
Are some of the rules old-fashioned/outdated? Let's take a look at a few:
1.) 90-days, no sex, no play. If he comes back he's willing to stay.
2.) If you show it you might blow it. (refers to women who wear revealing clothing.)
3.) Give it up, you're a slut! (refers to sleeping with someone on the first, second, or third date.)
I looked around online and even asked my friends what do you think about dating/sex rules and there were so many opinions, so many judgments that I couldn't keep track.
Essence has some old-fashioned rules that we still may use today which include:
-Always look your best
-Bad breath kills
-Confidence is Sexy
-Gentleman offer to pay (regardless of who asks)
...and others....OLD FASHIONED DATING RULES THAT STILL APPLY
After careful consideration and reading thousands of comments, I realized that many dating rules are individualized and depend on the couple. If we followed and maintained some of the rules we all might be on the same page. But, following one rule, breaking another, condemning or judging another for their choice says we will never be on the same page.
