    Dude … fourth season of Coupling … there’s this guy who has a crush on Jane but can’t speak to her. There’s this awesome dialog where she insults him about his inability, as a heterosexual guy to speak to women.

  3. Ben says:

    1) No bedrooms until after the third date. Offices and back alleys are fine.

    2) Red wine. That’s all you need.

    Let your mind go, and your body will follow. That’s all.

    Unfortunately, there seems to be a lot of crap that gets in the way…most of the time.

  5. Kara says:

    Why does there have to be rules? I hate rules.

    I agree with A – rules are what get in the way.

    Pretty sure I once wrote a post on dating rules…and have since broken every single one. If I learned anything from (500) Days of Summer (what? not a reliable source?), it’s that contemporary dudes are kind of pussies.

    I’ve always been most interested in the guys who walk up, introduce themselves, make conversation, and then ask to take me out. Sounds terribly simple, but works every time.

    1) He should always call first. Since HE asked you out.
    2) Make me laugh. Make me tingle. Make me feel like you are George Clooney.

  8. 1. Never delete a phone number from your contacts because a.) you may need to screen some day or b.) you may decide you want to try round 2 with them.

    2. You know that place on a girl’s neck between her ear and her collarbone? Yeah, that. Whoa.

    Having spent my dating years in either long relationships or brief physical dalliances, I have scant actual *rules* for how to date. There are two, though:
    1. He must make the first move/phone call. Yep, fellas, sorry about that one.
    2. He must express genuine interest in you as a person and not just a potential romantic interest.

    After that, it’s all a matter of tastes and personalities. And actually, I really like how Tia said it – “find [your] own happiness.”

  10. rules? where we’re going we don’t need any rules.

    or maybe that was roads. whatever.

    i love you marty mcfly!

  11. Alyson says:

    1. Pick me up. I don’t know how to operate a vehicle so it’s a complete no-go if the guy asks me to bus/cab it to our date spot.

    2. Be a “cool nerd”. I mean internet-meme-quoting, movie-referencing, video game-playing dork who has other interests and hobbies, but will get my No cure for Cancer and 4chan references or play a mean game of Left 4 Dead with me.

    i inspired peter dewolf.

    i can now check that off the life list.

    lovely talking to you this morning, my dear.

    (and the whole “class on talking to men” thing? i’m just a natural.)

  13. Amanda says:

    1. Hook up on one of the first 3 dates. Every time I “do the right thing” and wait until I know the guy I’m surprised by some odd sexual fetish. It’s my new rule.

    2. Be chivalrous. Open doors, pull out chairs, pay for stuff. I dig it.

  14. Amanda says:

    I have NEVER disagreed more with a blog post in my entire life. Tia is going to hate me. That post is bullshit and I’m telling her so.

    I love the internets. She can’t punch me through my screen.

  15. datingtoilet says:

    YES there ARE rules. Just the same as there are rules like…you can’t tell your boss to go screw himself…and you can’t ask a woman when she’s due, no matter how big her belly, unless she has openly said that she is in fact prego.

    1. A rule I follow… Don’t think or act like anyone is “out of your league.” If you think like that it will show.

    2. A rule to win my love…Make me feel like the hottest woman in the room/world.

  16. Sarah says:

    1. Be honest and kind

    2. Do not order a giant unmanageable sandwich on a first date. You’ll wind up getting nervous and self conscious and incapable of finishing said sandwich and your date will feel compelled to carry the soggy remains around for you for the rest of the afternoon…no? just me?

  17. Tina Fabs says:

    1. I’m honest to a fault and I like setting aside certain days every so often just for “us” — you know, just me and him (whoever and wherever he may be) not at a bar/party/large group event.

    2. Give me the distance I need and don’t feel like you need to be with me all the time. No sunflower can bloom in the shade.

  18. Michael says:

    1) My wife doesn’t let me date.

    2) Laugh. Just laugh. As long as we can laugh, we can figure out the rest.
