the rules dating guide-3

Sometimes the woman wants to pay for a night out -- and sometimes it's the guy who stays home to raise the children. It's not just Jennifer Aniston and Demi Moore who look amazing and decades younger than they actually are.

This means your old fashioned dating rules will have to be a little more flexible nowadays... We are all living longer these days, and in many cases aging alot more gracefully.

That’s why you have to take extra care with the timing and content of your texts.

And that includes—ahem—“self-portraits.” Take the initiative but then let the lady lead the way. “If you want to avoid getting a bad reputation, stick to one date a night, don’t contact other women while on a date, and make sure you make a note of who’s who so you don’t use the wrong name,” Kerner says.

With the emergence texting, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, BBM, i Phones and online dating, Fein and Schneider have added extra tips and chapters to guide 'Rules' women through this type of communication and how to stick to The Rules.

'Rules Girls', say Fein and Schneider are 'savvy women who know how to return texts and emails to a man without seeming desperate, how to maintain a cool Facebook profile without giving away too much and how to spot cheaters and players, and avoid them like the plague'.

In sex, just like sports, it pays to play by the rules. In football, o„fficials moved the restraining line from the 30-yard line to the 35, with the intention of increasing touchbacks. Using eye-tracking technology, scientists from the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction found that women are actually more likely to have wandering eyes than men.

And in basketball, o„fficials dumped the no-dunk rule after fans complained that it made play less exciting. Women not only spent less time looking at a man’s face (when compared with men looking at women); they also moved more quickly onto his other body parts. “So take in her breasts or legs, but don’t dwell on them.” And make the most of your assets, too.

Avoiding any "inebriated" tweeting is also highly recommended!
