Often, people feel uneasy if the level of desire isn't equal in a relationship.Being needy is also seen as a huge turn-off in today's society.You must wait approximately three days after a first date before you contact someone again.Why People Follow the Rule: You don’t want to come off as desperate or too interested.You must never assume the person you are sleeping with is only sleeping with you.Why People Follow the Rule: Our generation has officially ruined relationships, and casual sex is becoming very casual in our society.But, I feel this is only an issue when you are in your early 20s.
Most first dates go badly because of nervousness and anxiety. If you’re still not into that person after giving him or her a second chance, be honest and move on. We are by no means "put together." We have no idea where we are going, what we want or what we are going to do when we get there. I’m not talking about the rules your parents made for you when you were 15 and screaming at your mom to let you sleepover at your boyfriend’s house. You shoot him a text, letting him know you had a fun night. Two days later, you're debating whether to write off that apparently perfect person you met on Saturday night, or to pitifully send another text because, maybe, the message didn't send. We spend our rent money on plane tickets, and we are always searching for something more.Or perhaps, you want the person to know he or she only looks good in the dark.Sarcasm and bitterness aside, I believe people follow this rule because they are too nervous to call someone up for some afternoon delight.The fact is that no matter how in denial you are, these so-called rules exist.And members of our generation actually follow and endorse them, although they’ll never admit it.If you had a good time meeting someone, you should let the person know whenever you feel it. You could literally drive non-stop across Canada in three days.You could watch four seasons of "Grey's Anatomy" in three days. If you’re on the other end of this situation, and your date texts you within the next hour, evening or day, and you do not feel the same happiness and urgency, then be honest.Cut the bullshit, and have a mature conversation if being exclusive is what you want.And if it’s not in the interests of you and your “friend,” then make sure you’re being safe.
