To be clear, not knowing who The Fugees are or simply missing someone's references doesn't make you a bad person.It makes you ignorant of great music, and definitely not a match.' A number said they had noticed big differences between what men and women are like in the bedroom.
For example, generally, you try to avoid people with two first names or those who abbreviate the word probably as “probs.” But you never know; that one awful abbreviator could be your soulmate.
So, I'm proposing this "8-year rule" in dating as an absolute.
Here's an example of what I'm talking about, from a date I recently went on with a 22-year-old girl: In discussing how she planned on getting home after the date, her answer was simply, “Oh, my dad picks me up from the train station after work every day.”Her reason for this wasn't that she didn't have a car or that she was saving money.
It was that she truly wanted to be able to drink as much as she desired any and every day, on a whim.
But let's be fair: There's a reason we tend to date people who are closer in age.
So, if something seems too good to be true (read: he or she is too hot for you by about eight years), it probably is.
These women aren't uninterested or uninteresting; they simply haven't had to learn how to communicate with real people in real situations based on the world they grew up in. But just because you can also try Farmers if you're not technically a farmer, doesn't mean it's a good idea.
But what is a first date other than a test of communication between two strangers who are tossing around the idea of potentially engaging in sexual and emotional trust with the other? For these reasons, I beg of you to stay within the 8-year rule.
I could've saved a ton more money, and essentially, my social life as it is wouldn't be any different.
