Dating


 Dating is complicated. It feels like a game where everyone seems to know the rules except you. Like…does he call you first or do you call him? Or wait, do people even call anymore?! Truth is, there really are no “rules”... But there are things you can do to make sure you’re ready for all that dating will throw at you.
