Via Essence Old-Fashioned Dating Rules That Still Apply by Paul C. Brunson. Some of these had me on the floor!!!
There is no question the dating rulebook has changed. Just in the last 50 years, societal events such as the feminist movement, birth control, increased lifespan, and the Internet have created new rules of engagement. But just as some things change, some things stay the same.

Dating is thought (rightfully so) to be a confusing process but the more we go back to the basics, the more successful we’ll be. Here are 19 good ol’ fashioned rules that still apply today.

WhY Buy the Cow When You Can Get the Milk for Free?

Don’t rush sexual intimacy. Early sex is one sure-fire way to ruin a relationship. Make him prove his love for you before you get intimate. This rule is gospel!

Honesty Is the Best Policy

Drama is avoided when we tell the truth. There must be a balance you strike with this rule and the former (because omitting the truth is also lying).

It’s What He Does, Not What He Says

Actions speak louder than words… PERIOD!
