Last night was the fourth and last night of Dating Bootcamp for me and Lostplum. We’ve had a lot of fun over the last four weeks, sometimes at our hosts’ expense. Serves them right – they invited ME to an event where they were trying to sell the idea of waiting 90 days before having sex with a new guy.
Last night’s theme was built around the premise that you’ve met someone you like and are going out on a date with him. So kind of, “How to Not Screw Up A 1st Date.” Some of the advice was helpful enough, “don’t mention therapy” but other things just seemed weird to me, “don’t order sushi”.
The one big thing that I took issue with was their advice in regards to communications with guys. According to their rules a women should pretty much never call or text a guy, unless it’s to return his call or text, during the first couple of months of a relationship. They call this man management. They feel that initiating communication is showing yourself to be too eager and therefore giving up control.
I really don’t like this. Really. It just sounds like old-fashioned game playing to me. Girls don’t call boys. Boys need to be the ones who do the chasing. Ugh.
But maybe old-fashioned game playing is what works?
What do you think? Do you think women should call guys during those first couple of months?
- No. Men should be allowed to do the chasing. It makes guys happy. (27 votes)
- Are you kidding? If a woman wants to call she should pick up the phone and call. Or text. Whatever. Rules are stupid. (103 votes)
