When Should I Leave Her Alone?

You’ve known that women like to be pursued and you’re more than willing to pursue them. But, when you meet a woman you really like to get-to-know better and take out on a date…
How would you know when to stop pushing and pursuing? How do you know when to back off?

Title: When Should I Leave Her Alone?
So, when do you know when to back off? The first time she genuinely, explicitly rejects you, that’s when. No one can blame you for making the overture, but she’s not under any obligation to accept it, either.
Sure, now might not be a good time for a particular girl due to any number of circumstances, but she’ll let you know that. There’s a difference between “thanks for the offer, but I can’t this weekend” and “thanks, but I’m not interested.”
Now, is there such a thing as a woman who’ll meter her affection based on how much and how hard you pursue her?
Yes, but those women are looking to take …

We All Might Be Better Off If We Went on Blind Dates

They say expectation breeds disappointment. So why not jettison your perfectly manicured, full-bodied, blue-wearing online dating profile picture for a blank gray avatar? Blind dates might not be so bad after all. They don’t have to be dead.
That’s just one of the big reveals that came out of OkCupid’s recently relaunched OkTrends blog, the cultural phenomenon that in years past has discovered that people who have sex on first dates love the taste of beer and people who use Twitter obsessively don’t stay in relationships for very long. The blog, which had been on a far-too-long three year hiatus, is back in action and quick to confess that it’s been experimenting. With all of us.
Christian Rudder, co-founder of OkCupid and writer of the legendary blog, explains that if you’re on the internet, you’re bound to be the subject of hundreds of experiments. Because, as he puts succinctly, “that’s how websites work.” While Facebook might still be getting heat for giving us a dose of the sads via a news feed experiment, OkCupid’s been tinkering around with your dating profile to try to understand what makes dates actually work.
In order to promote their blind dating app in January 15, 2013, on a day OkCupid likes to call “Love Is Blind Day,” the company removed all pictures from the site. The effect? Mostly everybody stopped using OkCupid (c’mon, people want to know if other people are hot!). But here’s where it gets interesting: of the people who stayed on OkCupid during the 7-hour blackout, they were responding to first messages 44 percent more often, conversations went deeper, and contact details were given out more rapidly. What about the early adopters of the blind dating app? Data showed that they men and women had a good time on their dates, regardless of how good-looking their partner was. So why didn’t looks matter, however briefly, in these two instances? Most likely because the initial, photo-free connection was pretty genuine. Unibrows, funky hairlines, and questionable shirts didn’t matter as much in light of real rapport.
But once OkCupid flipped the switch and the pictures came back, conversations were halted. Phone numbers recoiled from the outstretched virtual hands. “Hey cuties” dwindled. The takeaway: “people are exactly as shallow as their technology allows them to be.”
OkTrends‘ other findings include comparing personality vs. looks and the power of suggestion. But I won’t spoil the fun for you.

Every Stage of Your Relationship as Represented by Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream

Ben and Jerry’s just announced their new “core” collection of ice creams with a column of fudge/caramel/jam running down the center. You won’t have to dig around for the best parts anymore, the Huffington Post explains, because the core structure means you’ll always have access to the best parts. At the Date Report, we were excited. This will improve all relationships, we thought! This will revolutionize the post-coital snack game! The binging-on-ice-cream-in-front-of-the-television game! The breakup game! And then we realized: Ben and Jerry’s is an essential component of every stage of a relationship. Whatever’s happening in your life, Ben and Jerry’ve got a flavor for that:

I Am Currently On A First Date And We Are Eating Ice Cream Ice Cream

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
You’re playing it safe. You’re on your tip toes. You’re grabbing for childhood nostalgia. Cookie dough is tentative hand-holding and almost-kisses and realizing you both grew up with family dogs named Ruffles. Also, no one but a monster is going to criticize you for choosing cookie dough.
I Just Got Home From A First Date And It Was The Worst Ice Cream

Everything But The…
That date was terrible. You know what is not terrible? This ice cream. Think about the Heath Bar bites. Think about the chocolate covered almonds. And white chocolate chunks. And the peanut butter cups. Think about everything other than the fact that you just spent two hours of your life you’ll never get back listening to some guy explain the ins and outs of your own job, you know, the one in an industry he has never personally worked in.

We Just Had Sex For The 134th Time Ice Cream

Greek Blueberry Vanilla Graham

We Just Moved In Together Ice Cream

What A Cluster
You know what else is a cluster? Moving. That was awful. But it’s finally over, and now you get to reward yourself by sitting among your boxes, eating your peanut swirls right out of the carton. You two earned it. Also, you two haven’t unpacked your bowls yet.

I Just Broke Up and I Am Totally Fine Please Stop Asking Ice Cream

Chocolate Fudge Brownie
You’re okay. It was time. They’re okay, too. Everyone is okay. It’s sad, yes, but mostly, it’s an excuse to eat Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. Everyone says that’s what you’re supposed to be doing, so you might as well dig in.
I Am Single And I Do What I Want Ice Cream

Coffee Caramel Buzz
