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

Here are a few modern dating rules from Ask Reddit.

15. The feelings you feel at the beginning of the relationship will not last forever. Make sure there is substance to someone you date if you plan on it being a long term commitment.

16. Please please please don’t insult yourself on the first date. You shouldn’t really insult yourself ever, but no one needs to see your emotional baggage when they’ve just met you.

17. Communication is the single most important factor in a relationship. Took me until my 30’s to really get that. If there is something about them or your relationship that you feel you can’t discuss with them, then they’re probably not the right person for you.
