What kind of things that you normally do should you not do during the initial dating process, and when’s the best time to go back to being your old rude self? At what point should you start telling people you’re a couple? When should you and should you not say, “I love you”?
If you ever wished there was some sort of manual or mutually agreed upon schedule for dating–there is. It’s called the Pre-Relationship Agreement. Here’s a sneak peak:
Should said relationship proceed past the first “fix-up” both parties mutually agree to use the following terminology in describing their said “dating”: For the first thirty (30) days both parties consent to say they are “going out”. (This neither implies nor states any guarantee of exclusivity.) Following the first thirty (30) days said parties may say they are “seeing somebody” and may be referred to by third parties as “an item”. Sixty (60) days following the commencement of the “first date” either member may elect to use the terms “girl/boyfriend” or “lover” and their mutual acquaintances may refer to them as “a couple”. Under no circumstances are the phrases “my better half,” “the little woman,” “the old ball and chain,” or “my old man/lady” acceptable.
To read (and/or print, sign, and notarize) the rest of the document, go to the Pre-Relationship Agreement page. Or visit the homepage of the IFAQ (Infrequently Asked Questions) site for more weird stuff and hours of time-wasting fun.
