Here are rules you should quit now.

90-day rule

Girl! It’s time to get over yourself and get laid. Anyone who still adheres to the idea that they should wait until the 90th day or after three dates to have sex is ridiculous. According to psychologist Jill Weber, no arbitrary amount of time correlates with what truly helps to build enjoyable sexual experiences for men and women. In order for sex to be enjoyable and safe, most people need to feel trust and emotional intimacy.

Play hard to get

This whole ‘I’m going to make him think I don’t care so he likes me more’ thing is much done now. You wait for him to make contact first because if you let him know how you really feel, will take away the mystery, or the thrill of the chase, and make him lose interest. That’s the dumbest rule ever; if you love the guy just be straight forward.

Ask a guy out

It’s totally fine for a girl to make a first move on a guy she likes. If you’re crushing on a guy, you shouldn’t be afraid to approach him to start up a conversation and ask him out. It’s confidence and flattering so take control girl!

Guys always pay the bill

During the first few dates, take turns paying; it shouldn’t be a guy who does that. Yo can’t just assume he’s going to pay for everything all the time. Meet the guy half way – you’re trying to build a relationship right?
