After speaking to a few ladies, here's what they have to say....

Fellas within the first 2 months of dating…..

1. Please end all of the drama with your baby mommas, ex-wives, stalkers or potential girlfriends before pursuing a friendship with me.

2. Discussing your high child support payment from last month is not a turn on. It's a turn off.
Side note: If you are on your state's Most Wanted list for outstanding child support, you are not ready to date seriously.

3. Prepare in advance for our dates. Watch the news or check the internet for the latest trends or topics of discussion.
Please do not show up looking like you were just released from prison. Turn off!

4. Proper hygiene is a must.
That includes nails, underarms, teeth, breath, toenails, feet, etc.

5. If you must, please inform your mother beforehand that you are on a date and will call her AFTER I am no longer in your presence.

6. If I invite you to my home, please do not get too comfortable.
Take all of your items with you.

7. If you must use my bathroom:
Please put my toilet seat down...
Aim directly into the toilet...
If you do the #2 please use air freshener...
Do not leave a dirty ring around my tub...
Please do not leave hair in my sink or tub...

8. Please be honest about your current dating status.
This saves the both of us a lot of time.

9. DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT bring your unruly kids to my house uninvited.
I am not your babysitter. When you leave, they leave.

10. Actions really do speak louder than words.
You may talk a good game but if you don’t live by them your words mean nothing.

11. If I tell you I am going out with my girls, please do not flood my inbox or voicemail with messages or send countless text messages.

12. Make sure you are sending your text messages to the correct person before you press send.
Save yourself from trying to explain what you meant later.

13. if you decide to invite me over to your home, please clean up first.

14. Workaholic
It is okay to be a hardworking man but there's always limits. If you cannot find the time for me now while dating, you will definitely not have the time later.

15. Not being yourself or putting on an act.
Fellows we know the difference between lame pick up lines or an awkward personality. Just be yourself!

16. Not listening to your date
If I mention a special date several times, more than likely that date is important to me. Please make a note of it and do your best to remember it.

17. Full attention or end the date
While on a date please do not continuously send instant messages, surf face book, twitter or play games on your phone. It sends me a message that you're not interested or you're a childish man.

18. Don't give up so easily.
If the first date was a disaster more than likely I will decline your offer for another date. Don't give up so easily, try other creative ways to turn my no into a yes.

19. This is a date not a therapy session.
If you need to vent about your children's mother or your ex-wife, call your friends.

20. If my phone rings while I am in your presence, please do not drill me as to who's calling me. This is my phone!
If I am that into you, I will voluntarily give you that information or not...
