"The Rules"

How many of you have read the book “The Rules”? I have never read it, but I have a copy on the way. The reason being is because I’ve met someone. We’ve only been out once, so I’m not hung up on her. I am just a little curious about some of her actions. I won’t go into those here, but after describing them to a few friends, they have mentioned that she might be following The Rules. That’s why I ordered a copy. I want to know what I’m up against. I either need to figure out how to circumvent them and make her give them up or just say fuck it and not put up with them at all and kick her to the curb, if she’s not willing to stop following them. I’m certainly not going to let her follow them and keep me around. She’s sadly mistaken if she thinks that’s going to happen. But, before I can do any of that, I have to determine if she’s even following them. I’m going to give her the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

So, just in case she is following The Rules, I have a couple of questions for those that have read The Rules. What is your experience with them? From a woman’s point of view, do they work? From a man’s point of view, do you put up with them, get around them or don’t deal with women that follow them?

Thanks for your input,

I have not read "The Rules" but speaking as a woman. I am no instafuck babe and no doubt this woman you have met isn't one either. Now if you had a good time on your date and you want another go for it and ask her what it is she is looking for. Don't just assume you know and reading a book isn't gonna get you the answer you seek. Good luck.

Thanks for your input. I did enjoy myself on our date and I do want to see her again. I'm not trying to figure out what she's looking for. I don't assume I know and I don't think I can figure that out by reading a book. Maybe I didn't make myself clear. What I'm trying to figure out is if there is a game being played. If there is, I need to know the game in order to play it and beat it.

Freshmoe....I haven't read it....but I heard it discussed on Oprah one day. I don't know too much about it though. As a woman though, I think while it might be a good idea to read the book.....it would be an even better idea just to ask her what she's looking for! Good luck!

Maybe I'm the one missing something. You're the second person suggesting I find out what she's looking for. Do you mean what she's looking for in terms of a relationship? I'm sure that will come out in time and I agree that's an important thing to find out. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for your response.

You know my thoughts on this one already....

Personally, I hate games and "The Rules" from what you are saying is a type of "game play" handbook.

I'm just me but (and I know I am in the minority) but if I like someone I tell them. If I want to speak to someone, I call them. If I want to see someone, I invite them out.

Rules? My rules pretty much consist of dont cheat, steal my money or punch me in the face. Other than that I am pretty flexable.

Good to know. When you say flexable, do you mean figuratively or sexually?
