New Dating Rules for 2015

Dr. Luv writes for New Growth Magazine

We are moving into the Age of Aquarius and the new dating rules are much less traditional. The good ole days when a woman patiently waited on a guy to ask her out on a date are gone. It’s more like, let’s hang out, let’s hook up, and see where things go from there. The New Age rules aren’t as clear as the old traditional rules. So for those of you who are looking to get back into the dating world, here are some rules that will help you navigate through 2015’s dating scene.

Be Honest

Let’s face it, everyone hasn’t recovered from The Great Recession of 2008. So please stop faking on Social Media if you are still dealing with financial, emotional, and past relationship issues. You can’t complain about dishonest people when you engage in false social media advertisement. In 2015, honesty is sexy. If you really want to get the attention of the opposite sex, tell the truth. Tell her that you find her attractive, that you can’t afford to take her out three times per week, but you are willing to take cooking classes to impress her with home cooked meals. Tell him that you aren’t a bank Vice President but you are the Head Teller who has plans to climb the corporate ladder.

Get Real

In 2015, we have grown women who believe that Prince Charming is coming to slay a dragon, swim through a crocodile infested moat to rescue her, take her to Neverland, and then marry her so they can live happily ever after. On the other hand, we have grown men who believe that an extremely attractive woman will approach him in a sports bar and whisper sweet nothings in his ear. Afterwards, they will immediately have sex in his car. Both sexes are living in a dream world. Some women want to bring their childhood fairytales to life and some men believe that their favorite porn star is their Soul Mate. Let’s get real! Prince Charming was looking for a Princess in medieval times which was nearly one thousand years ago. Porn stars that randomly approach men in bars probably have Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Herpes, or another life changing sexual transmitted disease that wasn’t a part of your favorite porn movie.  In 2015, we must replace our immature views about our ideal mate with practical possibilities.

Be Patient

In modern society, information moves at a rapid pace. Our culture has taught us that faster is better and this need for speed has spilled over into human relationships. But no matter how hard you try, you can’t rush relationships. Why? Because it takes time to understand people. Unfortunately, our society has programmed women to get married and have children before age 30. So between the ages of 27 and 30, some women are in a rush to get married and establish a family. Planning to start a family is like planting a garden. Before you begin planting vegetables, you must find suitable soil and then start digging your beds. All of this takes time. You can’t rush nature or relationships.

On the other hand, most men aren’t in a rush to find a wife or start a family. Most men are rushing to get women in the bedroom. Most women aren’t in a rush to have meaningless sex but some women are in a rush to have a baby and start a family. It’s important for men to be patient so that they don’t feel like they were tricked into starting a family. Men can’t blame women when they were in such a rush to get them into bed. The moral of the story is be patient.
