I May Not Be An Expert But.....

"My boyfriend and I broke up. He wanted to get married and I didn't want him to." - Rita Rudner

I may not be an expert in dating but I do play one on the internet. And, despite my long and mostly unsuccessful dating history, I'm convinced that chivalry should not be dead - although it does need Viagra at times. I’ve learned that when a man is into a woman he will actively pursue her. Period.

Here are some clues that he’s digging YOU and not just digging at your clothes:

-- He used 3 types of lettuce in the salad he prepared for you.
-- He bought you a fabulous bottle of wine instead of jager shots.
-- He compliments you so much that you feel like you’re worthy of a Nobel prize.
-- He wants to meet your friends and family – and its not because he’s selling anything. 

-- He pretends to be interested in your interests. Bonus points for acting skills.

On the other hand, here are some red flags to keep your Dud Dating Ratio down. Let him go if: 
-- He’s at his local bar more nights a week than he's with you. He’s chosen his favorite dive and it’s not your vagina.
-- He doesn't call/text when he says he will. No, he didn't forget; no, your number didn’t blow away in the May tornado. He’s blowing YOU off. 

-- He goes on and on for hours about himself - his job, his band, his fantasy football, his childhood, his ear infection, his Athlete’s Foot…. Send him to On and On Anon.
-- He won't commit. He won't commit to plans for your next date, much less a relationship!

So many communication breakdowns in dating.
 Is it me? Is it you? Are we both commitment phobes?
 Is he too picky? Am I too picky?
 I vote for exit interviews when it comes to parting ways. Get together with your girlfriends and draft some exit interview questions. Guaranteed good time and lots of laughs for all. And sip on these:

Failure to Launch
3 oz freshly squeezed tangerine juice
1.5 oz vodka
1 tsp Cointreau

 Shake it up with ice like Beyonce.
