For some reason my reader on WordPress is full of hapless tales of dating by men and women. Totally not a problem, although there seems to be quite a pattern of “rules and regulations” you are apparently meant to follow in the dating world which I think is quite ridiculous (and obviously not working for a lot of people).
So, as someone who has been in many a relationship (current one 4.5 years) and never actually been on a date myself – I think I’m totes the right authority here to give you all some advice on how to go about this dating bizzo!
So throw out all your The Game and He’s Just Not That Into You bibles and guides and check out my Unicorn Guide to Dating.
What to Wear
Spending hours standing outside your wardrobe trying to concieve the right outfit to wear on your date? Do they like heels, is my skirt too short? Should I wear a tshirt? Well, here is a well hidden secret that fashion designers will hate you for…..wear whatever the damn hell YOU want. That is all. Wear a dang potato sack or onesie if that makes you comfortable.
But NU, what if they judge me for my potato sack?
Tell them to swallow a rusty whisk and GTFO. Do you want to be with someone who is going to fob you off for what you wear? Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not, be you! This coming from someone who has picked people up when dressed as a dog, transvestite and a onesie.
When you should call/ text/ email
There seems to be a strict formula out there, where you should divide the time you spent together on the date and multiply that by 543 then square root to the power of 4 to get the exact time and date of when you should contact them again. Wrong by 4.34 of a decimal? BOOM they’re gonna hate you forever!
My homies, just message when you want to talk to them. Next day, next week, whatever. If someone is gonna be all “ermagherd he texted me like 32 hours after our date, what a needy beedy” then stuff them!
Disclaimer: just don’t be a total stalker messaging fifty billion times every second before they respond to you, that is a little much…
When should the P go into the V (or P into A, or V into V… whatevs)
My current boy pretty much is a one night stand that wouldn’t go away, and now we’re totally happy and crazy living together with fur babies and shenanigans. Actually, pretty much all my relationships (bar one as a youngun 18 year old, we waited like 3 weeks…) have been clingy one night standers. Sooooo I reckon when your pringle gets the tingle then your privates gotta mingle!
If they think you’re a hoe or man-whore after that, then they’re not worth your time. The right person will know you’re worth sticking around for!
And I think that’s enough advice for now, or you all are gonna be getting married and loved up left right and centre! Maybe more to come when I could be bothered – I am a unicorn after all and have pretty important sparkle parties to attend to.
