Have “The Rules” Bit Me in the Butt?

So dating has been on the brain lately. The problem is I have never really dated before.

I have been in the throes of a crush the last week- which was a complete surprise since my long-term (I thought forever) relationship only hit the wall three weeks ago.

But I am so out of the “game”- I didn’t know what to do so I over thought it, acted rashly and now that is likely a non-starter.

Oh well, c’est la vie. It really doesn’t matter. I am not really ready for anything but it was comforting to know I could still feel.

One of my friends asked if anything came out of it. I shrugged and said no. She gave me this knowing look and said that she knew nothing was going to come of it because the “rule” is the guy has to make the first move.

I paused and gave her a gentle WTF look.

But seriously, WTF?

In all honesty, I don’t know even know what “The Rules” are. I know of them but I balk at the idea of them.

So, out of curiosity, I asked her what a girl needs to do to get the boy to make the first move. Flash the girls. (She used a slightly more vulgar term.)

I laughed but she was only slightly kidding.

Well, I am not doing it.

I don’t care.

If that is what it takes for someone to notice you, forget it. I would rather be single.

I know so many amazing single women. What are we all doing wrong?

Is it really not waiting x days to call someone back? Lame.

Do we really have to be slutty? SO not me!

Where are all the guys who like funny tomboy-ish girls with varied interests and a mind of their own?

I have a feeling that I will just continue to navigate this blind, go with my gut and if it works, great, if not, I’ll lick my wounds and laugh about the stupid things we put ourselves through to find love.
