Dating Rules As We Knew Them
I’m speaking mostly about America and the European countries.
The day that the clock hit 12:01 in the year 2000, for me, everything changed. We jumped forward.
*.Whatever rules people were using to create relationshipswent out the window.
*. Sexwas completely open.
*.People were expressing themselves.
I think it’s wonderful that women are allowed to be sexually empowered and not chastised for that.
At the same time, you have an individual who is evolving and you have a world that kind of erased all the rules. It’s a free for all. Everyone is out there.
If they didn’t want to evolve, they have to now. The whole construct is all messed up.
No More DatingRules
In a way, we’ve had a forced evolution where people have to deal with a system that has no rules. They know the rules of the old system but no one is willing to play by it.
Now they have to deal with life the way it is and dating the way it is.
No one knows what’s going on.
Effects of No Dating Rules
You still have people who want love, partnership and meaningful connection, however they interpret that. That might mean for two or three months, or for a lifetime.
Now, everyone is faced with having to get very clear on what they want and having the courage to be able to state that and not worry what the other person feels.
You may have to say goodbye to eight or nine prospective suitors because you just told them the truth. “I like monogamy. I’m sorry. I’m not into polyamory. I’m not into being number two. I want to be number one.”
That may be a drag for some guys who are dating aroundand want to have a good time but you have to say goodbye to those people to be clear. Someone will want what you want.
Conversely, there are many people nowadays who are exploring open relationships, which demand an incredible amount of trust.
