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

Here are a few modern dating rules from Ask Reddit.

45. On cheating: If they’ll do it with you, they’ll do it to you.

46. Keep conversations positive. You don’t know yet what they care about and going negative can have bad results.

Example: I had grown up in a family that loves dogs but makes fun of purse dogs. I was talking to a guy who told me he had dogs. I started in with some of the jokes about little dogs not really being dogs. It turns out he had a chihuahua that he loved.

47. You still have other friends. Way too often I’ve seen people get into a relationship and spend every waking moment with their SO. Almost always ends badly. You need fresh air.
