Rules mormon dating
All of this goes against the teachings of The Rules.
I’ve read “The Rules” (both the original and updated) a few times. I’ve broken every single one of The Rules at times. The women feel like they have no choice but to be proactive, invite the guys over, flaunt what they got, and make sure they are noticed and remembered.
Here is the upside for the women- the reason why you should put your baking pans away, and stop being the go-getter. Without The Rules, you may throw more parties, and talk to him more, but you’ll never know if he was ever interested in you or the parties.
You’ll never have to send another text to your sister analyzing his every move.
So when The Rules suggest that a woman should never instigate a conversation, or angle herself into the seat beside his, invite him over first, etc., it might seem like a really bad strategy. I’ve been a Rules Girl, and I’ve been the anti-Rules Girl. (It’s possible she only ever planned the dinner just for this reason.) Every Sunday she makes it a point to talk to him, sit near but not too close to him, and repeats the same at family home evening, and Institute during the week.
How else will a guy ever notice you in a sea of other women, if you don’t help him out a bit? I’ve asked out men, and I’ve patiently waited and wished for a man to ask me out. She conveniently got his phone number when she invited him over for dinner. How much more does she have to do to get him to ask her out or fall in love with her? If she had never done any of that, she wouldn’t have to ask.
I do believe there are many exceptions to The Rules.
": All of us can communicate loud and clear without using words. I'd like to do this again very soon.'" You may laugh at first, but think about that for a minute. We communicate loud and clear with our actions, and if we're not careful, we could be telling lies! Ashton: You mean, you can be dishonest by kissing someone? If putting your arm around someone means "I like you," and holding hands means "I really like you," than maybe kisses mean "I love you." What do you think?You can meet a new person, have a fabulous conversation with them, and then it may be months before you spot the person at church again.There are so many people in our ward it can feel like Where’s Waldo in there week after week. Girl invites Guy over for dinner with her roommate and a few friends. Do The Rules apply or work for women in a singles ward where the ratio of women to men can be staggeringly not in their favor? And I can’t help but wonder, if Mormon girls in singles wards changed their approach, and followed The Rules, would there be more dating and relationships?
