We’re entering 2011 and we’re going to enter it well. This is going to be the year we men do online dating with a touch of class. There are certain commandments we must follow. There are 5 to be exact. Feel free to imagine Charlton Heston all dressed up as Moses and shouting these commandments out off of a stone tablet – it’s much more fun that way.

Commandment #1: Thou shall not cancel, or be late.

Being canceled on blows. You shouldn’t do it, unless your arm gets bitten off by a bear or you get front row seats to The Strokes. Cancel on a girl and you risk never seeing her again. On the topic of lateness – if it happens, it should only happen with the same woman once, and if you’re going to do it, make sure you text or call her immediately to let her know what’s going on.

Commandment #2: Thou shall not go through the bill, item by item.

It’s cool if you want the woman to pay for her half – no worries – most chicks are fine with that now. But don’t be an adult dating douche and go through item by item checking how much more her latte cost than your espresso. Just pay for a straight up half.

Commandment #3: Thou shall not think paying for dinner means paying for sex.

Sex with her is not a good. It can’t be bought. Sex is the exchange of one person’s pleasure for another’s. Period. Just cause you bought her some wine and pizza doesn’t give you ANY right to expect any type of sexual favor in return. And you’re a douche if you ever actually thought it did.

Commandment #4: Thou shall not get fucking hammered out of thou’s mind.

Tipsy, even happy drunk, is a-okay. But the stumbling-mumbling-obnoxious-grabby-you should definitely not make an appearance on the first date. No way, no how.

Command # 5: Thou shall not talk non-stop about the ex-girlfriend.

She doesn’t want to hear it. So just shut up about her already.
