VIP: Very Important Poll

10 Oct

Tonight,  @A_Dude79 gave some tips on “How to Win Guys Over” (in response to my “How to Win Girls Over”) on our podcast.   He had some excellent reminders for us girls, and I’d strongly suggest you take a listen. (The Podcast)

However,  one of his suggestions seemed a little off to me.   Keeping in mind that these tips are for people who have been on a few dates, he said “Be yourself.”   I countered that most people are on their best behavior at the beginning of a relationship.   He believes that people are only on their best behavior for the first few dates.  I believe that people are on their best behavior for much longer, maybe even so much as 6 months to a year.

We need you to help settle the score-  and A_Dude79 will share the results with he podsturbates next week Wednesday at 10:00pm Eastern Standard Time.

    I answered three dates, but I think it would be longer than that… Just not three months. I don’t see going on dates as a relationship. When my boyfriend and I started dating, I was seeing other guys. I think in the pre-exclusive stage, no matter how long it lasts, people are on their best behavior. For me, that meant I wore make-up and jewelry on all our dates, two habits that are definitely NOT daily for me. I guess I did agonize about hiding the shocking fact that I poop occasionally, but I got over it the first time we shared a hotel room for a weekend. If we hadn’t been long-distance, I think I would have gotten over it a lot sooner.

    TL;DR People are on their best behavior until they’re exclusive.

    I’d say best behavior three months. Though personally I get slack with shaving my legs and making sure my hair and make-up looks good a lot quicker than that.

    I would tell you if I knew. At the moment I haven’t gotten past date 3 yet… 😦

    I think most of us are on our best behavior for at least three months but after three months, then you start seeing people letting more of their bad behaviors start slipping into their lives. They do this as a Litmus test to determine how their romantic interest will react to those behaviors, this also allows them to figure out what will kick start the big fights in a relationship. Also it allows them to add the spice of drama to their relationships. Also remember there are those though that will be on their best behaviors for as long as it takes to really lock that other person into that relationship.

    I used to think that 3 months was the magic number, but I’m currently 5 months in, and my gf just brings out the best in me. I haven’t experienced this before, for this long. Sure, there have been accidental farts and the occasional bad day, but we communicate really well, which might be the big difference.
