Years ago, I used to be an avid Cosmopolitan reader (magazine not website).

But, with all the different life style/dating/relationship portals online, there are tons of places to get info!

So, when I saw the Cosmo article-slide show “10 Dating Truths You Can’t Ignore”, describing various male dating patterns, I forgot how much…I Love My Cosmo!!

“10 Dating Truths You Can’t Ignore”
By Holly Eagleson

Truth #1: You’ll regret that “Just wanted to make sure you got my last message” follow-up to an e-mail, text, or voicemail. (LOL – I’ve totally done this before!!)
Truth #2: If you don’t feel comfortable having a conversation with a guy about sex — especially condoms — you shouldn’t be getting busy with him. (Exactly.)
ItalicTruth #3: If a man breaks up with you out of the blue, the out-of-the-blue part is really only on your end. (I guess…wait, what?)

Truth #4: Just as it’s best to wait to drop the L-bomb until your man does, let a guy change his Facebook status to “in a relationship” before you do. (Not thaaat into FB, thanks!)

Truth #5: No woman in a healthy long-term relationship has ever said, “Gee, I really wish I’d slept with my man sooner. (I guess…wait, what?) LOL...

Truth #6: Keeping a change of clothes at work in case of an emergency walk of shame isn’t optimistic behavior…it’s career-savvy. (Uhm…hoe?!)

Truth #7: When a guy repeatedly refers to his exes as “crazy,” “psycho,” or “sluts,” he will use those same words against you one day. (Totally dated a guy that did this too. Wonder if he now describes me as psycho…whatevz, Douche!)

Truth #8: If a relationship feels like too much work after the first month, it’ll be 10 times harder a year from now. (it’s called a shit-tay relationship – Get.Out.Now.)

Truth #9: A guy who rates you or other girls as a number from 1 to 10 is a loser, even if he gives you a 10. You’re a woman, not county fair livestock. (Some guy just yelled a number out at me as I walked out of Daffy’s the other day.. WTF is wrong with some dudes? NOT HOT.)

Truth #10: A guy who talks about how skilled he is in the sack is like a man who brags about his money. Either way, he ain’t got it. The kind of man you want to be with knows that actions speak louder than words. And thankfully, there are plenty of those types out there! (Where? I kid of course, lol!)

Have you dahlings ever experienced any of the above “Dating Truths”???
