The Dating Games Need to Stop Now

So, you head to dinner one night with your girls. You go out for some drinks after and you meet a group of guys. Fast forward a few hours, a couple of drinks and possibly a shot or two and you have exchanged numbers with the one that you think is attractive. The second that you exchange numbers, you have, inevitably, started the relationship game.

So, now what? Who texts who? How long do you wait to respond to a text? When do you see him again? Do you include emojis with your text messages? 

Let's face it - the questions are endless. And confusing. And are just not fun. They make the process of getting to know someone just not very enjoyable. 

I say...If you want to text him, DO IT! If you want to send him a selfie, DO IT! If you want to mention seeing each other again before he does, DO IT! If you don't want to talk to him anymore, just DON'T!

Just be honest. Be yourself. Say what you want. Contact him when you want. 

If you feel that you are in "limbo" with him, bring it up to him. Especially in the beginning, you want to make sure that the two of you are on the same page. Most likely he is having the same thoughts, so the conversation won't be awkward. If anything, it will move your relationship in the right direction.

The Dating Game Needs to Stop Now

I want to be clear - there is nothing wrong with being in the "dating game". It is fun to go out to dinner, catch a show and get to know someone. But don't pass go without promising yourself that you will stay true to you. Be confident when you message him, don't add him on social media right away, and always make sure that you are honest with not only him but yourself as well. 

Stop playing the dating game. It brings unnecessary stress to your life and I'm sure you have enough going on as it is. If you like him, go for it. If you just want a hookup, keep it there. If you don't like him, then stop wasting your time.

Just, go for it!

Live fab, repeat! XO, Rebecca
