The Infinite Possibilities in Life and Love

Welcome to the Dating Game; And the next contestant is……

The rules of the dating game are: There are none! This is a decoy designed to filter out the less qualified candidates that still may have potential.  These rules were enacted unofficially by the women-folk, lacking of any tangible arbitration by  us gents and devoid of any male input. Hellllooooooo seclusion for the uninformed! Wondering at this point if any of us were ever going to at least dig a decent fox-hole within which to avoid mortar shells!?

 

At the behest of the sensitive masses of heartbroken and disappointed thrill-seekers, the stakes have been revised! As if the ingredients of “where’s my perfect man” didn’t already come consistent with some untested preservative on the bottom of the back label,… per Emeril’s advisement, someone needs to ‘Kick it up a notch’! Now, before all the dazed and confused congregation of even more ambiguously uncertain gents have a chance to entertain this brand-spankin’ new series of requirements, I got a few answers for the late-supper crowd to ensure that things don’t get ugly for you!….

Here goes!…Firstly, where meeting someone new and getting to the first-date stage used to be, (and still is for some…*wink) an exciting time, the game has certainly changed ladies n gents!~ No more are the just be yourself talks with your buds or the ‘Hey, Ma, guess what’ convos that preempt these meetings. The great 80’s novelty leggings have worn off of the ‘Valley Girl’ and Nick Cage is no longer considered that ‘cute, weird guy’!

Welcome to the world of administrative job placement! That’s correct. The first date with that super hot blonde has turned into a job interview and your prospective new employer is watching for eye contact and giving the desk a few once-overs for sweaty-palm stains! Rather than hook you up with a few links to such online mags or priv URL’s, I’ll leave you to your own research on ‘The Rules of Dating’, there’s plenty of material to seriously consider. Make sure you’re seated comfortably and absolutely DO NOT eat first.

“What is a date really, but a job interview that lasts all night? The only difference is that in not many job interviews is there a chance you’ll wind up naked at the end of it.”
– Jerry Seinfeld   http://uk.askmen.com/dating/keywords/dating-rules.html 

Here are just a few of the ‘Rules’ I have come across recently;

  • Don’t appear too eager! In this day and age, everyone is suspect to the same social responsibility. If you seem a lil’ too anxious, it looks like one of two things; either you have limited experience in these sort of situations, (which is questionable as to your character or ability) or just old-fashioned desperation which turns any average person into a world-class sprinter……quick!

 

  • Innovation and creativity is expected!  The same ol’, same ol’ just doesn’t cut the pork chop anymore, (even if it is a 5 star chopper) and more intimate, yet ‘safe’ activities are being explored. Time to break out the inner sous-chef and get to the boiling point people! A trip to the arts n crafts store wouldn’t hurt either. May find yourself crocheting by eve’s end!

 

  • The art of the compliment! This can be tricky! Too many, “Wow!, you’re hots” can lead to a perception that you’ve either never been with someone of physical-value or that you’re just looking for that all-too familiar romp in the sack at date’s end. Be selective and use constraint when doling out the flattery! It could become detrimental to you!

 

  • Let the ‘ex’ go! I hope that It’s safe to assume that most of us don’t have too much of an issue with this but nonetheless, it’s never appropriate to bring up shadows of the past while attempting to create something new! It only invites questions that you’re not prepared to fully answer. Besides, it’s a direct statement of your inability to get past……the past!

 

  • The night spontaneity died! If you were under the impression that you only needed a day-planner for work, sadly stated, you were wrong. Planning has become an integral point of entrance for everything and dating is no different. Being well prepped for your ‘State of the union’ may catapult you to elite status and you could possibly be meeting the parents for din-din in no time!…….Uh, oh!……….

Personally, I believe that  the incorporation of so much political bureaucracy into meeting someone with the ‘Right-Stuff’ is complete hogwash, the statutes have changed and so have expectations. Therefore, you may have to revise an earlier copy of your campaign statement!
