After an in-depth assessment of the market, we kicked off an exploratory process (thanks Liz and Mette!
) and decided to pivot, refining the key concepts around visibility preference and real-time tracking.
However, I have news for you: When it comes to dating, other than, “no means no,” THERE ARE NO RULES! Constantly telling any and everyone about your dates and conversations is essentially spreading and tainting the organic energy of the relationship.
This may come as a surprise but please take this as a statement of fact. Consequently, the circumstances which surround the joining of these two energies cannot abide by some fictional rule book. When it comes to your relationship, how much does the opinion of anyone who is not your partner actually matter?
This is why I have comprised a few anti-rules to dating. If you get asked out the day of for a date, you have no plans, and you actually want to see this person then why the f*ck not? #Live Your Life As a friend, I don't mind listening to relationship problems and offering a bit of advice, however the issue arises when it becomes an ongoing practice.
Because let's be real, at the end of the day no one really knows what the hell they're doing.“Never kiss on the first date.”“Wait a x minutes before responding to a text message so not to seem too eager.”“Let him make the first move.”“Wait at least three days after your first date before following up.”“Wait (insert arbitrary amount of time here) before having sex.”“If he asks you out last minute that means his other plans fell through and you're a backup.”We have all heard some variation of these rules. If you and your partner are in disagreement, try to keep the details of that problem between the two of you.
If you must get advice about your guy, take it from a friend who is in a happy and healthy relationship.
We felt we had to get ahead of the game again and predict the next bounce of the ball. With hindsight, we were undercapitalised at that point.
