My doodie brown TIPS for dating

I truly believe the only thing good about rules is that they can be ignored. So that's why I'm calling these TIPS!

Tip 1. LADIES, if you ever have to choose between true love and owning a dog, remember four legs will bring you more happiness than two.

Tip 2. If you've forgotten how to make yourself happy, you are screwed. Men in relationships need to be given the HOW TO manual. Otherwise, what you are left with is a THING that has been put together upside down, minus a few parts.

Tip 3. Don't be too eager for someone, anyone to love. From "Why Men Marry Bitches": You'd be ... turned off by a guy who brought two dozen roses to a first coffee date and told you he felt like the luckiest SOB on the planet in the first five minutes."

Sharing is caring -- add your OWN top 3 rul um tips!

1. Date someone who makes you laugh. Not by making fun of others or you, but by being himself. A relationship can go through a lot if you can make each other smile after the first six months.

2. Be decisive. No one likes having a 20 minute conversation: "Where do you want to go for dinner?" "I don't know. Where do YOU want to go?"

3. I'm going to steal a tip from Sarah and from the Oracle at Delphi: "Know thyself." If you don't know what you're looking for, he's definitely not going to figure it out for you!

alice you're SO RIGHT about the being decisive thing.

there is nothing worse than the "i dunno" couple who can't even decide where to SIT, let alone what they're going to ORDER for dinner.

i think those are the types who end up watching a lot of television and eating a lot of pizza;)

Well, I've come up with these rules based on one of my friends attitudes on finding love. One of the reasons why she's not going to our ten year HS reunion because she doesn't have a boyfriend (feel free to roll your eyes here...She doesn't realize how stupid an excuse that is):

1) never feel like you need a man to exist in the world. You just have to beleive in yourself and have confidence in yourself and the rest will follow.

2) You need to love yourself before you can expect anyone to love you back

3) Don't expect perfection, and don't expect somone from the pages of a magazine or a music video to come crawling to your door. Nobody's perfect, so don't demand it from anyone else. If you do than you will be miserable your entire life.
