Dating Etiquette for the Social Media OBSESSED โ€“ BeautyBeyondBones

Dating help & how-to’s for millennials. From Snapchat, to chivalry, to communication skills, romance is a lost art. There is a right way to treat a lady.

Shop this look!

After receiving aย literalย miracleย ofย finallyย having my hormones restart after aย decadeย in recovery from a severe case ofย anorexiaย in high school, letโ€™s just say, Iโ€™m not wasting any time in the man-friend department.

And I think Iโ€™ve finally discovered the truth behind the old adage,ย youโ€™ve gotta date to find out what youย donโ€™tย want in a partner.ย 

Sheesh.

Leave it to NYC to show you the absolute highs and the absolute lows in life. And in this case, the dating scene.

This post is coming after an episode of being absolutelyย miffed. Like, just picture me, pacing, scratching my head, annoyed, slightly angry, feeling likeโ€ฆwhat in the worldย just happened?!

Human decency, people. Human decency.

I never in a million years thought that this would have to be saidโ€ฆI meanโ€ฆcommon sense, right?

But alas, here isย how to treat a ladyโ€ฆ

DATING ETIQUETTE FOR THE SOCIAL MEDIA OBSESSED

  1. I donโ€™t know, maybe donโ€™t make firm โ€œTBDโ€ plans with someone a week in advance, and then not give specific details until 25 minutes before sheโ€™s supposed to arrive.
  2. Chivalry isnโ€™t dead:ย offer to pick her up. Or at theย veryย leastโ€ฆcall her an Uberโ€ฆdonโ€™t make her call her own. Especially not in the rainโ€ฆ
  3. Hereโ€™s a shocker: maybe tell her she looks nice. Every other guy in the bar is noticing, perhaps you could justย acknowledgethat she put some effort to look nice.
  4. PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY!ย For crying out loud, go without your phone for an hour and a half. Itโ€™s not fun to feel as though youโ€™re a distant second to a personโ€™s technology.
  5. Same with a sports game. Unless youโ€™re at a sporting event or a sports bar with the purpose of watching the game, peel your eyes off of ESPN. And for the love of all things good, refrain from shouting at the TV.
  6. Do not incessantly text, Snapchat, Instagram DM and Tweet intense conversations and build up how excited you are to hang out, and then fail to actually follow through. Some people actually believe that words have meaning.
  7. Do not ghost.
  8. Do not ghost.
  9. Do not ghost.
  10. Honestly, putting in the exhaustive emotional effort to get to know someone for three weeks, and then to vanish without a trace, is the epitome of rude. I get it, things come up, you meet other people, but have the decency โ€“ even a text message โ€“ of signing off, wishing them well, peacing out. You are not a child. Donโ€™t act like one.

Oh the red flags I experienced are justโ€ฆwow.

And not that Iโ€™m looking for a perfect prince charming, but there are just, some things that are non-negotiables.

And surely, Iโ€™m guilty of some red flags of my own, that Iโ€™m unaware of.

So hereโ€™s my question to you!

What isย yourย dating advice?

Truly. Hit me with it. Iโ€™m here to learn, because the good Lord knows Iโ€™ve got a long way to go!

What are some of your experiences?

HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH TO EXPECT FROM MEN THESE DAYS?
