How hard can modern dating be? In truth, it’s actually not as hard as many people think. However, there are men out there who just don’t get it. Because times have changed, modern dating is not just a simple boy meets girl type of situation.
What Men Need To Learn About Modern Dating
So what does happen when you are on a modern date? What do men need to learn from how dating is done today? Here’s a list that men need to memorize:
1. Women know they have a choice.
Women are not obliged to say yes to you. Every woman you encounter knows that she has rights and that she is strong and independent. She can say no when she doesn’t like the situation or if she’s not into you. You just need to accept this.
2. Nice guys don’t get friend-zoned.
No, nice guys don’t always get friend-zoned. Women do prefer men with an aura of mystery and danger because it is exciting. But, in the long run, several studies have proven that nice guys are more “in demand” for serious or long-term relationships.
3. Ghosting hurts, FYI.
The urge to ghost someone online is strong with the male species. You need to know that being upfront about not wanting to talk to or date someone is better than just disappearing out of thin air. Trust us when we say that being verbal about breaking up is better.
4. Feminists are not man-haters.
Have you ever encountered an online dating profile that says “feminist” on it? Feminism isn’t about hating men so you shouldn’t, at all, be intimidated by this. Feminism simply means that women want equal rights.
5. Drop the macho act.
Negging and being too confident (acting like the alpha male) does not work in modern dating anymore. It’s a clue as to what your character is and you don’t want your date to think that you have bad character.
There are more lessons that men need to learn about modern dating but let’s cap the list off with these five essential ones. Men simply need to up their game and get with the times. For more updates on dating, read more posts on our blog.
