This is an age-old question that many women today don’t really like to hear. That’s because we most often only hear the words “cow” and “buy” and we are neither cows, nor are we for sale! Right? Right.

Well, like it or not, when it comes to old-fashioned dating in a new-fashioned world, there are still some wise old sayings and attitudes that still hold true even today. As modern women, we give away too much too soon, it is no wonder most of us are still “on the market.” This article on Essence.Com nailed it. Here are just a few of the headings that caught my attention:

Always Look Your Best. You never know when you will run into your dream man, so always look your best, even if you’re just going to the mailbox. First impressions are definitely lasting ones.

Gentlemen Offer to Pay. Regardless of who initiated the date, a gentleman always offers to pay. Deep down, many women still yearn for a man to prove that he can take care of her. Offering to pay is one such gesture.

Don’t Offer Too Much Too Early. That includes your chastity. We’ve all made mistakes, but it’s never too late to start getting it right. The next time around, just be sure you hold out until you’re sure he’s after your heart and not your booty.

Phone Calls Always Win. A man who is interested in you will pick up the phone to hear your voice. If he’s hiding behind text messages and facebook messaging you, get a clue, and leave it alone.

A Man Without A Plan Isn’t Ready For You. If you find yourself planning most of your dates because he always shows up with no plan, he’s not really that into you. A man who’s into you will show up with a plan hoping to wow you.

You Will Kiss A Few Frogs before You Find Your Prince. Dating is okay. It is how you weed the good one from the bad ones, while learning social skills, and finding out what you can and cannot tolerate in a man.

Why Buy the Cow When You Can Get the Milk for Free? The age-old question most of us dislike. But no matter how much we hate it, it will forever remain true. Don’t offer too much too early! Be sure what he’s in for before you give it up! Read the full article on Essence.Com
