The new rules for dating: Stop looking for love

This story might be one to add to the realm of urban legend: a friend of a friend was a little down on her luck with love and money. In an effort to troubleshoot the easiest issue first, my friend suggested, “Maybe you can get a job as a nanny,” to which Debbie Downer responded, “I don’t want to be a nanny; I want to have a nanny!” Subsequently, she purchased a relationship book called The Rules and followed the book’s dating advice to the T. Six months later, she was engaged to the handsome wealthy man of her dreams. She’s now (presumably) happily married with two kids… and a nanny.

It’s taken me a while to face the fact that there are rules of engagement one must follow to properly attract and trap — I mean keep — a partner. For a long time, I acknowledged them but met them with resistance. I’d hear the usual, “Don’t kiss on the first date,” “Wait at least two days to return his call,” “Don’t give it up too easily.” When I was younger, I would adhere to some of these guidelines, but always netted out feeling, “It’s all too much. I don’t want to play games. I want to be honest about how I feel and let a relationship unfold naturally.” So, years later, when I finally read Not your Mother’s Rules: The New Secrets for Dating, a follow-up to The Rules, I was ready to roll my eyes before even cracking open its digital cover.
