Rules dating book review

Here is the caveat; the strategies our grandmas used were good a hundred years ago.

That was when women stayed at home and when men worked and provided for the wife and the kids.

I handed my phone over to Friend #1- she spent some time typing what appeared to be a message a little on the longer side; something to the effect of- “Hey! I had an awesome time last night and would love to see you again! Make this shorter.” I took back my phone and combined the advice of my two favorite ladies into a message I felt comfortable sending. A message that expressed interest but didn’t take things too far.

But I needed a little help crafting the message (come on ladies, don’t lie, you know you’ve done this, too).

And most importantly, you must remember that when a man acquired a wife, it was like acquiring an asset, a servant, in other words free labor to care for the man, cook for him, clean his house, and raise his kids.

There are still places in the world that live by the same standards.

And frankly, those days women settled down with whomever their fathers choose for them.

Often, it was not ok to kiss a man, let alone sleep with a man before marriage.

It worked for them, so why wouldn’t it work for you?Let’s pave our own path, create our own set of “rules” and see where the ride takes us.(Oh and also, according to the book, this blog post is the kiss of death when it comes to dating.
