What is your dating etiquette?

I don't have any, don't usually date many men cause I fall for the first one that I hang out with... lol. I don't want to settle anymore because I always find myself in bad relationships.

I am asking because I am curious and because maybe it could help give me some help in the futureb when I do decide to date.

  • Don't sleep with the guy on the first date. Wait until you have a good idea of what kind of relationship you have.

  • My suggestion is getting some help to figure out WHY you put yourself out there emotionally so fast. and work on yourself for a while before dating at al

    No alcoholic drinks on the first or second date.

    I used to be the same as you. I would fall hard for the first guy with the personality traits I liked. Then find myself with losers. Then I decided that no matter how much I intitially I liked the guy I wouldn't say anything about it. Not to friends, not to family, not even to myself. I would pretend like he's just a cool guy. I would keep hanging out and keep getting to know him. Then after a while I'd either realize he was a complete douche or he was truely a great guy. I taught myself how to not fall hard on the first meet. It was hard, not an easy road, but I did it. I realized that I talked him up soo much in my head based on a few likeable traits, that I ignored the red flags. Then once the red flags were ignored he became perfect. Bad idea. Just be realistic with yourself and be honest with yourself.

  • ROTFLMBO... it never would have occurred to me to list no sex. I guess Im not that slutty.

    It has been well over 20 yrs since I have dated. I would say you need to choose wisely - they need to have a life, and afford the life they have (meaning have a career not just a job/ be a forward moving man/ be moral/ active/ etc). You need to be interested in them... no dating for a free meal. They need to pay, open doors, speak appropriately, etc. NEVER settle... always aim high.  Dont be/act desparate. 

    hummm... there is probably much much more.
