Dating should simply be whatever brings enjoyment to the both of you while you're together. No rules or methods. It's not a 12 step program.
Here I thought I was removing constraints. I guess I just suck at saying what it is I'm trying to say. If you took it as me saying that's the only method, and not just trying to suggest a different way of approaching it to people who seem to be trying things I've been trying for forever that obviously haven't worked, then I'm definitely misspeaking. Also, there was a point to my "hash tags".
