We got to college dropped the 20 questions game and picked up the Netflix account. We created our own culture of watching the cliche / corny scary movie on Netflix and “chilling” with a significant other. Post college though we are going to be thrown into this new world of DATING! face to face talking with strangers, the friend of your friend or the guy/ girl you met at the coffee shop the day before. This calls for dropping the chill and picking up the bill! The Rules of Dating like an Adult.
1: Being financially stable
We just got out of college finally are out of our minimum wage high school jobs and are either interning or just starting up at a full time job this is the time to start saving up. No girl or guy will wants to go out to McDonalds for a first date, save up enough to enjoy a coffee or drinks date. It’s all good though because we are all in the same situation of being poor.
2: Know how to dress
Sadly the sweatpants and a sweatshirt we wore to our Monday 8ams are not in style. Not implying dressing like you are going back to prom, wear something that fits to your style and personality, if you are a t shirt and jeans sort of girl or a dress with boots sort of girl dress to your strengths, and don’t over think it! Even though you will still try on thousands of different combinations and not like any just make a decision and own it.
3: Don’t Over Eat
Do not stress eat on the first date or stress drink! Stay calm and enjoy your food/ drink and enjoy the conversation, we all get nervous just know how to show it!
4: Don’t act desperate
You don’t need a relationship, dating is meant for people to see what works for them and what doesn’t work for them it’s like taste testing ice cream. Don’t expect a relationship to come out of a first date just see how it goes and take it slow.
5: Be outgoing
If you are interested in the guy/girl at your local coffee shop down the street or co- worker don’t be afraid to just ask for their number, because why not!? whats the worst that could happen we are all in the same situation of dating. You will never know your type if you never look.
6: We will get the Hang of it
Dating isn’t easy but sooner or later we will become less awkward, learn how to dress,and become pros at it. Dating is a fun carefree environment of trying on several different shirts and seeing which one fits best.
