For example, generally, you try to avoid people with two first names or those who abbreviate the word probably as “probs.” But you never know; that one awful abbreviator could be your soulmate.
If it's not weird enough to have your teacher instruct you on how to flirt, it's even worse that these tips seem to come straight from the 1950s.
The tips include "Help plan the date sometimes," "Eat the food you order, don't waste his money," "If you think you're too fat, etc., keep it to yourself," "Be feminine and lady-like, don't use vulgar language or swear."Not OK.

It's apparently much easier to see if she wants to “hang out," which leaves so much room for interpretation, and inevitably lead to an exasperated girl finally asking the guy, “So are we just 'hanging out' or is this a date?

(Of course, this was back when girls had to actually call the “house phone" – a word I have had to teach my sons).
Girls, make the guy call you, not the other way around. If he doesn't have the guts to dial seven numbers and say, “hello," then he's not worth dating. Guys need to call it a “date" and make their intentions known.
Fellas, it's time to man up and actually use the word “date." Make your intentions clear from the beginning.
The 8-year rule states that you shouldn't date anyone outside of an 8-year age range. I've dated (or tried to date) women who are older, younger and, if you'll believe it, exactly the same age as I am.
I am aware there are possibilities where two people can successfully date with an age gap of more than eight years. (Seriously, she was born on the same day and same year.
Here are four problems you'll likely run into if you break the 8-year rule: I once went out with a woman who was under the impression that Lauryn Hill was made famous by being in “Sister Act 2.”Now, there are a few reactions you can have to this.
