New Dating Rules For A Modern Single Woman To Follow
A recent study about the new rules of dating are based on a recent Match.com survey. This survey outlines some interesting facts for anyone looking for dating and relationship advice. The survey revealed that the rules of dating have yet again changed and they want to world to know these new rules. Dating has become a strange world, but a few of the classic dating rules still apply to today’s dating habits. A relationship expert for Match.com believes that it is important for single people to know that some of the rules have changed. Whitney Casey talks about how dating habits vary between the ages. Younger people tend to focus on the social media side of dating whereas older people still want to be cautious when it comes to social media.
The first new rule suggests that these days women are more likely to want to pay for the first date. The classic rule is that men should pay for the first date, and maybe even all dates, but that is not the case these days. The survey by Match.com found that 41% of women are willing to pay for the first date. This rule is a nice change of pace.
The second new rule discusses hot all it takes is about 15 minutes to feel if there is any chemistry between two people. The survey showed that 31% of people, men and women, collectively agree that it only takes 15 minutes of a date to decide if there is any chemistry there. This may be discouraging to some and they might fear that they may leave them after only 15 minutes into a date, but do not worry. The survey also found that only 12% of people would ditch the date before it is actually over, even if they do not feel the chemistry there.
The third new rule agrees that honestly is still and will always be the best policy to follow. If you are not enjoying a date, it is best to tell them right away instead of string them along or make yourself uncomfortable. Match.com’s survey showed that 52% of people believe that the right thing to do is to just tell your date that you are no longer interested and save yourselves some pain. It is not fair to either of you to lie about having a nice time, so just be honest!
The fourth new rule argues that you should now “go all the way” until after your first date. The survey showed that 80% of people do not think one should have sex on the first date. They believe that it is best to wait and get to know each other better first. They argue that holding off on having sex can help build mystery and tension. It has also been shown that if you do sleep with your date on the first date, they are less likely to call for another.
The fifth new rule wants people to know that it is okay to follow up! Do not be afraid to tell your date that you had a good time with them as quickly as possible. Women especially like to get that reassurance. Despite this new rule, the survey showed that 68% of men like to wait at least three days to follow up, while women tend to follow up within the first 24 hours.
The sixth new rule is that classic communicationis a healthy way to live. In this modern world, there are so many ways to talk and to follow up, like text, e-mail, or social media. The survey showed that 80% of people would still like to talk on the phone rather than use newer forms of communication.
The seventh and final rule of this article is: you can friend you date Facebook if you want to. It all depends on when you are ready, but generally these days, it is okay. Younger people would rather wait until you have gone on two to three dates. Older people tend to want to wait a while longer until the relationship is exclusive.
