Your habits play a huge role in your love life, you know.

Once upon a time, women were encouraged to follow The Rules, and guys are encouraged to play The Game, but it's 2016.

Dating life is different.

Some habits just aren't doing you any good.2

Worse, they may be sabotaging your efforts to find the right person for you, no matter who that person is.

They're immature and, in some cases, totally unnecessary.

Just think about it, huh?

Take a look at these dating habits and, if you recognize them, consider how useful they actually are.

1. Playing Texting Games

Playing Texting Games

I don't mean flirting or sexting through text – if that's your thing, go for it!

I mean, getting angry if s/he doesn't text back right away, over-analyzing every message, and setting arbitrary texting rules that affect your behavior.

2. Having a Texting Relationship

Having a Texting Relationship

Texting is efficient, convenient, fun, and fast, so, of course, it's easier to communicate that way.

Still, once in a while, wouldn't it be nice to plan a date over the phone or in person?

Wouldn't you prefer to have certain conversations in a more intimate setting?

Don't let the entire beginning of your relationship occur through texts.

3. Snooping

Snooping

Snooping – or trying to snoop – through texts, emails, DMs, and photos is just bad news.

Don't do that.

If you feel the need to, this probably isn't going to last, anyway.

4. Setting Arbitrary Time Limits

Setting Arbitrary Time Limits

If he doesn't text you back in an hour, he's cheating.

She has to have sex with you on the third date.

You have to be serious after a month of dating.

Staaahhhp.

Every relationship is different, every person is different, and there are no set rules!

5. Trying to Make Your New Boo Jealous

Trying to Make Your New Boo Jealous

Oh, honey, no.

No, don't do that.

You never need to do that.

It's just not a good look – on anyone.2
