Modern dating is nothing like the movie Fight Club – we SHOULD talk about it! Like any other social skill, dating is an expertise that can be learned and polished, which is why we decided to provide you with a brand new set of dating rules for 2018.

If you want to be a pro dater, make sure you follow these rules:    

Making The First Move Is Hot

Good things come to those who wait, but not in the modern dating game. Dithering is never sexy, and if you decide to wait for the other person to make the first move, someone else will snatch them away from you. Someone who knows that making the first move goes a long way.

The Three-Day Waiting Rule Is A Thing Of The Past  

Waiting 3 days before calling the person you like after the first date should be left in romantic comedies from the 90s. If your date went great, feel free to text that person immediately with a witty comment and reference on something interesting that happened during your date. Being funny is always sexy.

Being Confident Is Sexy As Well

Remember, being confident is extremely attractive, but being arrogant isn’t. Learn to make a distinction between the two.

Looking At Your Phone During A Date Is A Turn Off

Yes, we know that smartphones have become a modern day necessity, but if you are on an important date, for the love of god – put the phone away. Memes and fake news can wait.

Do Not Go All In Right Off The Bat

No matter how great things are going in the beginning, make sure you don’t romanticize your newfound relationship too much and steer clear from setting unrealistic expectations, at least until you are sure this is the real deal. Focus on truly getting to know one another first.  

Do Not Lie About Yourself, Especially On A Dating Site

Being your true, genuine self from the beginning goes a long way. If the person you like starts to fall for a false representation of you, and not the real you, your relationship is pretty much doomed right from the start. Do not lie about your age and keep your profile pic up to date.

Learn To Listen

Being able to listen (but really listen) to the person you fancy is one of the most important traits when it comes to dating. Ask the right questions and show some empathy. Empathy is so rare these days, thus it is extremely sought after.

Don’t Waste Your Time With A Wrong Person

If you feel that the two of you are simply not clicking, nip it in the bud and end things before the other person starts to develop deeper feelings for you. Follow your heart, it’s better for both of you in the long run.

Be Clear About What You Want In A Relationship

Modern dating is all about efficiency. There’s plenty of fish in the sea, so make sure the two of you are on the same page about what you both want from this relationship. If one person is all about casual fun, while the other is planning kids, that romance is bound to crumble.

Don’t Be Late

Being late is unacceptable in 2018. We all have smartphones in our pockets; you know what time it is at any given moment; you can google if there’s traffic; you can always order an Uber; and finally – you can simply leave your home on time. It’s all about respect.

Sex On A First Date Is Ok

As we already mentioned, some rules are meant to be left in the past. If you are both feeling it and you are both attracted to one another, feel free to have sex on a first date. Intimacy can be a crucial part of any relationship, so checking if there is chemistry in the sack right away is nothing but a catalyst.
