From The Archives: The Single Girl's Dating Rules

In September 2006, African-American chic-lit author Nina Foxx shared her Top Five Dating Rules. Here they are again as a reminder for the single ladies:
  1. Follow the little voice in your head. If it says, “Run”, don't waste your time.
  2. Don't hope that it will get better. It never does.
  3. Baby Momma Drama. Hmm. How much can you really take? It's okay to date a man with children, but realize that you are also dating his kids and their mothers.
  4. Being real about relationships will help you realize which ones are keepers. Not all are. Just because two people have sex does not mean they have a relationship. That iscalled a situation.
  5. You can never go back, time doesn't work that way. If it didn't work the first time around, it probably won't the second or third time either. He might still look and feel good to you, but chances are you will remember why you broke up eventually.
