Dating Rules For Girls
~Tried & True, Old & New~
dating rules for
girls have not changed much over the years. There are some that are
more modern, however the evolution of the rules has come with changes
Long gone are the days when girls sit by the phone and wait
to call them. Back in the day they did that because it was wrong for
them to call a guy. The only way they would hear from a guy is if
they were home when he called. Today it is within the dating rules for girls for her to
call a guy, however it is not in the rules for her to call him
following is a list of dating rules for girls to follow before, during
and after her date. Some may seem outdated, however they have been
tested over time and have been proved to work like a charm.
Before the Date
- Look your
best for the date.
Taking time for proper grooming is always a good idea. It takes time
for a lady to get ready, so plan enough time to shower, do your hair,
nails and make-up. When my husband and I go out on a date I always make
sure I do a little extra to show him that I am excited to be spending
the evening with him.
- Wear an
appropriate outfit on the date. If
you can, find out what you will be doing, so that you can pick clothes
to match the activity. It is never fun to show up for a bowling date
wearing a skirt and heels. If he wants to keep the activity a surprise,
it is appropriate to ask what type of clothes to wear. Make sure your
clothing and dress are modest, clean and match.
- Be on time.
It is just good old fashioned dating etiquette to be on time. This
shows that you respect him and the time that he has for you. It has
been said on many occasion that a woman should keep a man waiting, I
don't think they asked the man who is waiting and waiting what he
thinks of that.
During the Date
- Allow him to
be a gentleman. Chivalry
is not dead. The right kind of man loves to show his respect for you by
opening car doors, holding open doors, ...etc. It is a way that they
can take care of you. If you are unsure he is this type of man, lag
behind a little bit to see if he will open the door for you. You will
know soon enough and will be able to adjust accordingly.
- Be a lady. I
grew up surrounded by boys, and in so doing adopted a lot of boy
attributes. When it was time for me to date, I had to learn with dating
rules for girls (the hard way) that men do not like a girl who is good
at belching, farting, swearing and so forth. Use your good manners with
them and they will appreciate it.
- Be confident.
all starts when you are getting ready for the date. If you look good,
then it is easier to feel good about yourself. Men love women who exude
confidence (not arrogance). Avoid fidgeting, biting your nails, filing
- Keep the
conversation balanced. By
this I mean do not control the conversation with things about you.
Asking a man questions about his life, job, family, hobbys will show
him that you are genuinely interested in him. Look him in the eyes when
you are talking. When he asks you questions answer them honestly. Keep
the conversation informative, but not skeleton in the closet
- Avoid the
of the worst first date conversations you could have is who you have
dated, how/why you broke up and the scars you carry. If he asks, you
can politely decline answering. Your baggage should stay at home where
it belongs, with the skeletons.
- Offer to help pay for the date. Politely
offer to help pay for dinner, however don't make a big deal out of it
if he says no. Guys should never expect the girl to pay. Also, they
know when you are trying to get out of it by conveniently 'going to the
bathroom' when the check comes.
every date is the best date ever. There are times when the guy is not
who you thought he was and starts acting inappropriately. Respect
yourself enough to say no and end the date. Do not worry about hurting
his feelings, worry about keeping yourself safe and happy.
- Enjoy the
a lot. Life is too short, so laugh and have fun. Even if you know the
relationship with this will go no further than this evening, have a
good time. Dating is all about experimenting, so live it up.
After the Date
- Show your
him for a great time. Again, smile and look him in the eyes so that he
knows you are sincere. Let him know if you are interested in seeing him
- Give him some
time to call you. Don't
expect a call the next day. If it happens that is great, however if it
doesn't give him a few days. Calling him a few days later to thank you
him again for a wonderful time is appropriate.
- Know when to
give up. If he hasn't called you after a few days, let it
go. It is time to move on. It is not
in dating rules for girls to sit around waiting for a phone call that
will not come. This only puts you in a bad mood and nobody likes
Let's face it ladies, we
love the amazing men out there
We love it when they are interested in us. We love it when they treat
us with respect and make us feel like the lady we truly are. They are
incredible balances in our lives.
rules for girls is the best way to be confident, have fun and give them
the respect that they deserve all at the same time.
