Dos and Don’ts

I have gone on a ton of dates in the past couple of weeks. Dating really sucks, a few of the dates went well, the others… TERRIBLE. Here are the dos and don’ts if you want to date me.

DO open the car door for me. I think it is cute, and it makes a good first impression.

DON’T open the car door for me when I am getting out… that is just awkward

DON’T tell me to kiss you. If I wanted to kiss you I probably would. If I don’t than I won't, no matter how long you try to get me to kiss you.

DON’T try to force me to kiss you. I WILL make you leave.

DO show up on time. I just don’t do late, if you have a good reason, or let me know ahead of time that you are running late that is fine, but show up when you say you will.

DON’T call me a little before you were supposed to pick me up and tell me your roommate is taking me on a date instead. I agreed to go on a date with you, not your roommate, I probably would rather just stay at home, it’s not like I’m desperate.

DON’T call me after midnight and tell me you need to see me, and after I say no come over anyway. No means no.

DO tell me I look pretty. But only when you think I do, if you say it too much it gets old.

DON’T tell random people we are engaged. I know you were kidding but it really wasn’t very funny.

DON’T make me unfold my arms so you can hold my hand. Especially if we are on a first date.

DON’T keep scooting closer to me as I inch away. I am inching away on purpose.

DO keep it really relaxed on the first date. If I say yes to a second date, then maybe you have a shot. (Probably not, Scott comes home in about 9 months, but maybe)

DON’T text me a million times if I don’t get back to you right away. I don’t always have my phone on me, and I will get back to you when I can.

DON’T text me at midnight if you want to hang out… Otherwise I will assume that you aren’t just texting me to hang out and chances are I won’t text back. (Richard is the only person this doesn’t apply to)

DON’T kiss me and then avoid me for the next couple days. If you’re not interested, I will be just fine.

Dating is such a funny thing. Some days I hate it, some days I enjoy it. Some guys are retarded… need I say more?


  1. the "roommate substitution" is hilarious. that is so bizarre.

    great list. some guys really need to know these things. i agree that waiting for the guy to walk all the way around to open your door is awkward. it's such a long wait. and then when they don't do it, you feel like an idiot for still sitting in the car. :)

  2. I feel like you posted this just for me... Although I'm going to assume the two events are unrelated. These are some pretty interesting things...

  3. Did these things really happen to you? That is so sad that guys would do that! You think it would be common sense. At least you only have nine more months of it left :)

  4. Did someone actually do that with the roommate? Wow. What a A-hole!

  5. Oh my God you're absolutly right! I think the best one is: "DON’T tell me to kiss you. If I wanted to kiss you I probably would. If I don’t than I won't, no matter how long you try to get me to kiss you." That's should be a law.
