“If you think you know the rules, some new app will come along and reinvent the rule book.” Here’s how to play the game now.
Apps such as Tinder have spoiled us for choice and made it OK to be dating multiple people at once.
Also, some of these aren't "rules" per se, but more like observations or insights. RULE 1: Women communicate in two modes: the way things are, and the way they WISH things were. RULE 2: Women desire attention the same way that guys desire sex. RULE 4: Confidence attracts women even more than good looks. RULE 24: Where women are concerned, pay more attention to what they do than what they say. Any girl that can be stolen from your best friend isn't worth stealing from your best friend. Chances are that you won't be able to get back with her. RULE 30: If you aren't sure about when to bend or break a rule, go with your instinct.
This is why you see fat, ugly, or dumpy guys with hot chicks. You will attract more women when you don't care if you're attracting women. Things involving some activity are best: pool, bowling, roller blading, mini-golf, dancing, etc. RULE 10: Do not give gifts early in the relationship. RULE 20: Never date a girl who has more problems than you do. RULE 25: Realize that women are tricky, lying, manipulative, devious, scheming, sneaky, cunning, calculating, shrewd, and Machiavellian creatures. Chances are also good that if you DO succeed in getting back with your ex, you'll wish that you hadn't. If it's wrong, that's a good lesson for next time...
