I will soon be back on The Dating Scene and might b a lil rusty. So I'm going to axe my fellow MgoBloggers a few Dating Ettiquette questions.
First, it seems that the term "dating" is not in vogue anymore. Not from a definitional standpoint, but because our co-dependent culture has made the term irrelevant. Now, it seems as if you are "together" as a couple if you go beyond Date One.
The problem I have with that--and here's the crux of the situation--is that you can NOT possibly be "datING" or "a couple" unless three things are happening: 1) You are using HER bathroom, leaving skidmarks and odors that would make a skunk jealous; 2) You are openly farting in her presence; 3) You are belching the Belch of the Gods.
Nos 2 and 3 are important. This is your "True Self." Face it, we are NOT the guy we sell when we meet a chick. We hate any and all ghey movies. We do NOT like shopping. We are NOT sensitive (not counting the underside of our penises), and we LOVE to fart and burp. Purposely. Even Michigan Man, who suppresses any and all emotion and outward displays ofinelligence, objectivity, civil and social graces, and is usually self righteous to a point that he could give lessons to Mark Dantonio or Mitch Albom, burps and farts.
S I ask you: Is it two months? Three? And don't go into sex, because let's face it, if you aren'tbanging the girl by about the 9th minute you know her, you aren't Dating in the 2000's, and, of course, once you are banging her, all bets are off. Burping, farting, borrowing money from her, telling her she DOES look fat in that dress, and being truthful by saying her cooking sucks are now on the table.
I'm not exactly saying tell me when it's ok to have her "pull your finger"--just when it is OK to release those pent up gasses that magically build the minute you and she sit down for a quiet eveing of you pretending to like "Dancing with the Starz" or H&G TV.
