Double Texting & Other Things The Right Guy Won’t Mind You Doing

When it comes to finding love, there seem to be endless lists of rules you need to keep in mind if you want a chance of making it last and keeping his interest. Forget all of the dating faux pas you’ve learned about in the past. When you meet the right man, he won’t mind if you do all of the things that your friends have warned you against doing. He’ll love you, no matter what.

  1. Double texting. The right man for you will want to hear from you in the morning, noon, and night. It shouldn’t matter if you double text him, triple text him, or quadruple text him with nothing but the poop emoji. He’ll still smile whenever he sees your name pop up on his phone.
  2. Forgetting to shave. If there’s a little bit of stubble on your legs or bikini area, the right man isn’t going to care. In fact, he probably won’t even notice. He’ll love you for you, which means he’ll be paying more attention to your winning smile than how stubbly your skin is.
  3. Eating more than he does. You don’t have to order a salad when he does. Order the lobster, like you planned on doing in the first place. Don’t stop yourself from ordering dessert either, because men like women who know how to eat.
  4. Cuddling without sex. If he loves you, cuddling won’t have to lead to sex. He’ll be just as happy to snuggle up to you in bed as he’ll be to flip you over and have his way with you. As long as he’s close to you, he’ll be happy.
  5. Wearing pajamas. He won’t expect you to dress up every single time he sees you. If you invite him over, you don’t have to do your makeup and change out of your nightgown. He’ll probably end up ripping your clothes off as soon as he arrives, anyway.
  6. Calling him at midnight. If you have something to say, you shouldn’t hesitate to call him late at night, while he’s at work, or two minutes after your date ends. If he’s the right one for you, he’ll be happy to hear from you.
  7. Mentioning your ex. The right guy won’t mind hearing you mention your ex, as long as it doesn’t become a habit. He’ll be so comfortable with you that he won’t feel intimidated by the fact that you’ve slept with other people. After all, he knows he’s the last one you’re going to sleep with.
  8. Making a mess. Don’t worry about spilling your drink on your lap or getting spaghetti sauce all over your face. The right man for you might make fun of you for it, but he’ll never mean any harm. He’ll probably grab a napkin and wipe up the mess himself.
  9. Swearing. If you’re angry enough to curse a bitch out, then he’s not going to tell you to act like a lady. He’ll be just as riled up as you are, because all of your problems will become his problems. So if you start cursing, expect him to join in.
  10. Stealing his stuff. If you go through his closet and steal a shirt, he’s not going to mind. In fact, it’ll probably turn him on to see you wearing his clothes. There’s something sexy about a woman in nothing but an oversized shirt and socks.
