The Golden Rule of Dating

The following is the absolutely 100% guaranteed way to determine if you should keep seeing her*: are you excited to see her again? If yes, you’re golden. That’s it; there is nothing more that matters.

*I intentionally used the female pronoun because I think it reads better than “them”. Also, I’m not interested in dating anyone again, and if I recant that vow, it won’t be to date men. And since this BS post is from my perspective, then that’s that.

What’s that? Too simple? Dangerous? Fraught with emotional and potentially physical landmines?

Answer:

Sure, all that shit could apply. But it doesn’t matter. As we’ve all heard ad nauseum: life’s short. I don’t care if she’s bad for you. I don’t care if she’s bad to you. I don’t care if your friends, family, shrink, and local law enforcement tell you to leave the state, change your name and never contact her again.

Life isn’t supposed to be always healthy and sane and pretty and safe and trigger free and logical. And dating is the same. You all have guts. You all have consciences. You all can hear them clearly. If those two entities tell you to go ahead, then go ahead. Hell, even if they disagree with each other, go ahead. I can guarantee you that when you’re on your death bed and looking back at all the crazy shit and crazy people you encountered in life, you’ll probably laugh about it.

And if my advice backfires and she burns your mansion down (RIP Left Eye), don’t come crying to me. Look at the blog subtitle: an Asshole speaks his peace. I didn’t hold a gun to your head.

“Enjoy yourself. It’s later than you think.”

Happy Monday!
