Old fashioned dating rules that still apply
Source: i Stock Repeat after me: you don't owe anyone sex for being nice to you.
This whole "well, he bought me dinner, so I should probably touch his penis" rhetoric has to stop.
But, who says that being the one to initiate is a turn off or not ladylike? The same people who believe that "men should be men and women should be women." Cool, got it.The idea that a first date should end with a first kiss and that's the barometer with which you decide whether or not to go on a second date is antiquated and kind of puts a ton of pressure on both of you, don't you think?Kiss someone when you feel like it and hope that you're pleasantly surprised.For example, if you want to try oysters with someone on a first date, don't ask to split the check (happened to me - those things are expensive, it's a bad move).So, keep that in mind when you propose an activity for a date.
Of course, when you think about it, doing what you want when you want to is kind of an overwhelming amount of freedom to have, especially when you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing when it comes to dating.
