Who came up with these so-called rules for dating? It must have been someone with a timeline to get you in bed. You need to understand from this day forward you make your own rules! Let’s look at the Three-Date Rule which is a dating rule of thumb which states that the third date is when the decision is supposed to be made regarding whether a woman or man will consent to sex.
Like many longstanding traditions, it is difficult to trace the exact origin of this term. There are references going back to the “free love” era of the late 60’s and early 70’s. I think that it is where this so called rule and many others probably became popular. Having these rules promoted the free love lifestyle. In case you didn’t notice, we are in a new century, and it is time for new rules! No one can tell you anymore what you should or should not do!
An anonymous poll carried out by msn.match.com among 5,237 singles of different ages suggests that in general there is no such rule. Judging from the answers to the question,
“How many dates does it take before you become intimate?”
■Four or more: 34.18%
■Only after marriage: 6.66%
As you can see, many people set their own timetable for when they are willing to have sex. I have to say I was surprised to see almost 60% are having sex within the first three dates. I for one do not fall into that category.
When dating you should do what is right for you. If you don’t feel like kissing a man goodnight then by all means don’t. You do not owe anyone anything. When you were asked to go out on the date, they should be simply asking for your company. Sharing time with them is what you agreed to and nothing more. Is there a price tag on a kiss? If so, then my price tag is really high. A hug, kiss, or sex is something that you offer when you are ready and comfortable with; it is not up for sale. You are in control now, and no one can tell you what is right for you.
Here are my suggested dating rules. Throw out all the dating rules from the last century and make your own. I have only two rules; one is that I am honest about everything. I present myself as who I am, not who I think they want me to be. Next, I have no time limits on what I will or will not do because of the number of dates. I do what I feel is right, and I follow the Christian standards of my belief, and I conduct my life with the morals of my faith. I have to look myself in the mirror and I judge myself regarding my actions.
As humans, we all need and want sex. Don’t do it before you are ready for any reason. When I find the right man, and I am ready, he will be graced with a shared experience that he will never forgot!
