50 Newbie Dating Rules For Anyone Putting Themselves Out There For The First Time

Here are a few modern dating rules from Ask Reddit.

25. I’d also point out don’t be ashamed to not date the “hottest” guy or girl in school. You will be shocked to see how the hot girls/guys really lose attractiveness after a few years and the average girls/guys become super attractive well after college.

Source: I’m old and girls I had crushes on in high school I wouldn’t even date now and girls who I friend zoned because I wasn’t interested in are jaw dropping gorgeous.

26. I know this is very obvious but a lot people don’t really realize how important this is. BE HONEST. There will be times where your S/O will be talking about their interests and you will have no clue what they are talking about. But that’s ok!! Just simply tell them that you are not familiar with the topic but you are interested to know about it. If your S/O doesn’t like something that you like, that’s ok as well. There will be moments where people gets hesitant and they make a white lie, or lie in general to impress their S/O. Honesty is key, I know he/she is hot, and you want to impress them but at the end of the day, looks don’t matter. You don’t want to end up with someone that you can’t be yourself with.
