Your job is to pay attention to that red flag and not pursue them.Rule #3: Actions Speak Louder Than Words During the course of your dating life you will most likely find yourself on a date with someone whose actions speak much louder than their words.
In sex, just like sports, it pays to play by the rules. In football, officials moved the restraining line from the 30-yard line to the 35, with the intention of increasing touchbacks. Using eye-tracking technology, scientists from the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction found that women are actually more likely to have wandering eyes than men.
And in basketball, officials dumped the no-dunk rule after fans complained that it made play less exciting.

By going on a second date, you’ll gain a better understanding of who they really are and if you’d like to see them again.
Rule #2: Pay Attention to Red Flags Like those internal alarms that alert you to your gut feelings, you also have an alarm system to alert you to red flags. As a result, we often ignore red flags and find ourselves getting involved with inappropriate partners because we’re not paying attention.
If a potential date’s actions or words set off an internal alarm system, you owe it to yourself to pay attention and act accordingly. For example, if you’ve met someone online and they seem interesting, then you talk to them on the phone and they sound completely different (in a negative way), you may decide not to meet them in person.
A positive example would be if you were on a date with someone and they seemed nervous but well intentioned, your gut might tell you to give them a second chance.

"At some point you need to let him know you're interested by reaching out.
If the guy pays (even when I offer to pay for myself) is that an indication that it's a date for sure? I can't deal with religious doctrine, but when it comes to dating rituals I'm stuck in the 18th century (courtship as a process to getting married etc).7. I hear some Christians/Catholics wait -- but as I said I am not religious, I'm just not comfortable with the concept.
I am not very religious at all, but in comparison to what I understand is the norm in American dating I am probably too conservative for the average guy I would meet. Or suggestions on how I find guys who are not religious but can take the physical things slow as if they were?
