We’ve all heard the expression ‘working at your relationship’, or ‘working at your marriage’, but if you spend the vast majority of your time working at work then where will you find the energy, head-space and the time required to be just as successful in matter of the heart?
There’s nothing wrong with a little enthusiasm, but if you’re over-zealous and smothering your date with proclamations of love and suggestions of co-habitation as early as the first date, then don’t be surprised if your dating partner doesn’t match your eagerness and stops returning your calls.
Is chivalry declining, moribund or already dead and is that a good or bad thing? The rules of the dating game, in terms of the more traditional social behaviours, is in significant flux and this has brought with it no small amount of confusion for men and women alike.

Being rude on a first date is not exactly ideal behaviour if you fancy your chances of progressing to date number two. But, did you realise that the more subtle forms of impoliteness, such as clicking your fingers to beckon the wait staff, is just as likely to send a signal to your dating partner that you’re probably not exactly a great catch!
