Dating tips for the modern woman(3/4)

When I was younger and (more) clueless about men, I wondered why someone couldn’t just knock on my door and tell me exactly what to do when it came to dating. Yes, I was talking to my friends, but it was like the blind leading the blind.

I needed professional guidance! I needed dating advice for women that actually worked.

Well, to cut the story short, I never got it. Instead, I had to learn from my own mistakes.

But, hey, there is a silver lining to every cloud. Now, dozens of heartbreaks later, here I am, wiser than ever.

And, here you are, lucky that you don’t have to wander around looking for your soulmate without the slightest idea of what you’re doing.

Why? Because I’ve got you covered. Here is other two tips and tricks that every woman wishes she knew sooner.

Better safe than sorry  

We live in an interesting time where “bareback” is used as an indication of commitment regardless of if there is a relationship or not. Despite our cultural movement towards unprotected sex, sexually transmitted infections do not care about our rationalisations or pleasure. So if you’re getting frisky with a casual partner whose STI status you do not know, it's always better to veer on the safe side of utilising condoms and other barrier methods. Why not take it one step further and get tested with your partner if you’re interested in feeling that skin to skin contact? 

Place value where it matters 

Sure, you might want to be booed up with the hot person everyone is after, and that’s a valid want. If however, this person does not offer you value in the areas that matter to you, whether that be consistency and effort, or simply doing what they say they’re going to do, you might be better off going Stag. Our society has placed a negative value on single women that is centred on a lot of patriarchal drivel. As you navigate this V-Day, if you’re sad about being alone, that’s understandable but don’t sit in that. Studies have shown that single women are the happiest demographic. Life is good when nobody stressing yuh out eh.
