[What Should Be] Common Sense Rules

2 Sep

After conversing with some friends – I decided I should post a list of what I would assume to be common sense.. but apparently is not.    These have come about because they have actually happened to either myself, or friends.

1)  Don’t tell a female you are not attracted to her, and then get angry when someone else finds her attractive.

2) Don’t show up at your ex-girlfriends house and announce that you are there to hide from another ex-girlfriend.

3) Don’t spend any length of time on a first date explaining how you just filed divorced papers and that your spouse is pissed about it.

3b) Or.. how about don’t go on a first date on the day you file divorce papers.

4) Don’t dump your girlfriend to “try out” the same sex, and then never actually try out the same sex.

5)  Don’t make plans with someone, then completely ignore them when they are attempting to finalize the plans.  Cancel like a decent human being.  (In the words of Velvet – “Everyone has a grandma that has died 700 times.”)

6) Keep your goofy shit to yourself on the first date – i.e nose licking and meowing.

7) If the girl doesn’t order another drink and starts to look at her watch,  that is not your cue to order another drink.  She’s leaving.

8)  After 93 messages back and forth,  you either need to ask her out, or fall off the planet..  Either way,  make a decision.

9) On a first date, it’s probably not a good idea to bash in a political side when you have no idea what side of the political spectrum your date is on..  cause as luck would have it – it’s most likely opposite to yours and you look like a tool.

10) When you refer to someone as “your date” multiple times, and they correct you every single time — It is NOT a date.   Additionally,  don’t throw a passive-aggressive tantrum the next day on Facebook.


Let’s keep this list going!  I want to hear yours!

    Please do not do that thing where you put your camera up in the air over your head and take a picture of yourself. Look, I understand why you’re doing it, I really do. There are some harsh double standards in society, and it sucks. However, you are not fooling anybody, and if you actually do fool someone, is that really what you want their first impression on a date with you to be?

    I would SO rather the goofy stuff come out on the first date… So that I don’t waste my time on a second date with a guy who is a total loon.

      Agreed- however.. sometimes the goofy stuff can be endearing and not frightening after you have gotten to know someone..

        I think that meowing and licking one’s nose crosses the “goofy stuff” line and goes right into “WHAT THE HELL”. I agree that if you’re going to do that, it should probably wait for a later date. Like, the “this is a part of me that I will keep to myself” date.

    I’d actually rather the political stuff come up right away, I was on a third date once when my date announced to me his hero in politics and I wanted to throw a glass of water at him (total fascist). I’d rather have a dud first date then get my hopes up!

    If you’re still living with your ex because you’re still “good friends”. umm, no. You’re still with that person in every capacity other than it’s no longer Facebook official. 🙂

      True.. I read a saying on Facebook that said “Two people who broke up can’t be friends. If they are, they are either still in love, or never were.” That one hit home.
