5. Set absurd rules
Steve Harvey time! Let’s get this out of the way right now, Steve Harvey and his 90-day rule is the dumbest sh*t on the planet. You might end up waiting 90-days to have sex with someone. But if that’s a hard rule in your book, you got problems. Let me break this down for you.
If you tell me you’re trying a 90-day rule before you have sex with me, I’m going to ask you a question: “Why?” You’re going to attempt to answer that question and no matter what you say in your head, I’m going to think that in your past you’ve had problems keeping your legs closed. If you need a rule as silly as that one to make sure you make the right decisions when it comes to sex, we can’t date. I’m not saying that you should have sex on the first date. This is when you should have sex: when you’re ready, you trust him, and you know you won’t regret it.
Guys, you don’t get off easy either (||). I’m snitching. These are our top three rules that make no damn sense:
- Don’t talk or chill with each other two days in a row.
- If I don’t have sex with her by the third date, it’s a wrap.
- Seasonal barriers to relationship. Oh you know what I mean, you’ll be with the girl of your dreams in July, but tell yourself, “I’m going to wait until after Labor Day to wife it down.”
Stop it. Stop all of it, all of it is just ridiculous as hell!
This is my list, but what’s on yours? What are some things that one should definitely never do when they first start dating a person? We’ve got a mix from your man Carver The Great here, the playlist is in the comments, and this week you’ve got a special interlude from me describing a dating experience of my own. Cheers.

61. Facebook stalk them
It seems as though most people’s first reaction to meeting someone and finding out their last name is to immediately “friend” them on Facebook. After the friendship is complete, ladies go straight into your pictures looking for any recurring faces… like your ex-girlfriend. The men go straight into your pictures looking for Spring Break pictures. Both of these are wrong. Facebook is a great social networking tool, but it shouldn’t replace good old-fashioned getting to know one another.
