Unfortunately, dating advice from more recent years doesn’t get much better.
The ‘90s brought an ambush of bad dating advice books, including Besides being impractical and kinda sexist—spoiler alert—these rules don’t work, even for some of the people who came up with them.

(And we don’t answer questions that are already answered in the article you’re commenting on.) If you ask a question and need a response , we partner with San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI) to give you free, accurate, confidential info on sex and reproductive health.
Their phone number is 415-989-SFSI (7374) and here are their hours.
(That’s also why there’s some lag time before your comment shows up.) We greatly appreciate your presence here and welcome your participation 24/7/365.
Just remember to be respectful and you’ll be good to go. One more thing: We do our best to answer questions in a timely manner, but we can’t guarantee an immediate reply.
So let your (real) hair down, and throw out the rulebook.
