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

Here are a few modern dating rules from Ask Reddit.

12. Don’t look too much into things – stay busy and don’t be super focused on just dating. Try to have a life besides “getting out there.”

13. On a real note, relationships aren’t always going to be a 50/50 for putting in effort. Sometimes your SO will be having a bad day and can only put in 20% of the effort, and you will have to pick up the other 80%, and vice versa. There are struggles in relationships that come from outside the 2 of you, and you just have to acknowledge it, and work together to get through that rough patch.

14. Don’t talk about exes or previous dates.
