O.K. here you are wondering what to do next. Should you call? Should you not call? Should you ask him/her out first? Woe is we! Some dating issues are so plain cut and dry that we oftentimes do not recognize them; even when they're right in front of our face.
If you really did have a great time on that first date, yet he/she now seems hard to get in touch with, or you can get in touch with him/her, but he/she just don't seem the same... that ever happened to you? I know it's not fair for people to be dropping hints, but in a case like this one, take the hints and run with them. We don't have any precious time to waste, can I get an amen?!
If you haven't heard from him/her in a while, Please, please, PUHLEEZE don't call a person with this lame, weak line, "whatcha doing?" It's obvious he/she wasn't thinking about you, or they would have called you, not vice versa - PLUS people hate that line. Don't let anyone talk to you in a drab, boring, I wish he/she would leave me alone tone of voice. Again, if they're dropping hints, pick them up. You deserve to be happy and hanging on the phone trying to make a conversation alone isn't fun, not fun at all.
On to the commandments. These commandments should offer you insight on some of the dating dilemmas you may be experiencing right now. We hope you find them useful and take them to heart.
