Rule #5: Don’t Beg

Because phones are ubiquitous Rule #5: 'Don't Call Him & Rarely Return His Calls' is one of the hardest rules to follow. I've got three reasons why you should.

When do you stop trying to make it work?

I just dated a woman for a month, but now it ended. She really liked me, and freely expressed it. I had some feelings for her but they were not strong. I mentioned this and that I wanted to see if it would grow, but then she ended it. Should we talk, or go our separate ways?

Rule #2: The Hunter Hunts The Deer

Rule 2 is where the modern woman starts to feel a little angsty with The Rules. This time we get into how to cope with sitting back and waiting & why feels so against everything you know.

My long distance relationship is taking all my time

I haven't been in a serious relationship in a few years and recently started dating someone. She lives in a different city (about an hour or 1.5 hrs apart) and we've been spending about 3 days a week together. Basically, I feel like this is too much time, or at least more than I want right now, because when we're together we don't get anything done other than spending time with each other (I'm a student).

Could we have an open relationship?

I have been in a relationship for a little more than a year. I do LOVE my girlfriend, but I'm still a man. Sex - over a year into the relationship is outstanding... at times she initiates sex with me - fun. She tells me that I make her feel SO good. She is LOUD in the bedroom.

The Rules Deconstructed

Here begins the journey through the quick and dirty. 'The Rules' is the sort of book you either love or hate, but regardless... there is truth within. Knowingly or unknowingly, Sherrie and Ellen nail the feminine creature to the wall.
