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

Here are a few modern dating rules from Ask Reddit.

39. My first real date in years was basically me talking about myself for two hours. Naturally, there wasn’t a second date.

So my advice would be to not do that. And also compliments, everyone likes being told they look nice.

40. Work on managing your attachment – that is, don’t go crazy for him/her in the first 2-3 weeks. People often need time & space to build real connection. IMO Nothing is worse than having to backpedal out of something or push someone away because the other person fell instantly and they’re 3 stages ahead of you.
