So we keep a few other people “warm.” Why this is bullshit: I can’t say this rule is unfair. This is the time it takes for you to respond to someone’s text message.I personally don’t like dating more than one person at a time and I’m definitely not going to sleep with more than one people at a time because that just doesn’t feel right to me, but I’m learning there are lots of people out there who find this perfectly acceptable. It should be equivalent or approximate to the time you waited for their text message. The idea being, “I waited for you to get back to me and now you’ll wait for me since I don’t want it to seem like I was waiting by my phone for you to text me back.” Why this is bullshit: Again, it’s just not being authentic. Most of the time, we all have our phones on us and we get text messages as soon as they come in.
Supposedly, texting twice in a row indicates you’re a little too into someone, and that is not good.So having sex on the first or second date just happens.I don’t think we need to feel guilty or be slut shamed for this.If it’s someone we aren’t trying to seduce into liking us, we respond right back.When it’s someone we’re interested in, we get a little giddy and then play the wait game…so it seems we’re a little hard to get.So we meet someone we like, we exchange numbers and the games begin!
Here are some of the rules I’ve recently learned and personally think are total bullshit: You need to wait at least three days to get in touch with the person you had a date with.
Why this is bullshit: If you had a great date with someone and you’re interested in them, why would you wait to get in contact with them again?
I think we run the risk here of giving someone the opposite message that we want.
Why people follow the rule: if we don’t know where the relationship is going, we don’t like to close off all of our other options.
And we do tend to be a bit cynical in the beginning and fear we’re going to lose interest in the person or the person is going to lose interest in us.
Why we think it’s important: we don’t want to look desperate or appear that we’re actually into someone.
