Your friends may tell you things like, “Don’t respond to his text for two hours"; “Be a jerk. So if you can’t get advice from (self-proclaimed) experts or friends, how in the world are you supposed to get into a relationship? Relationships don’t happen because you follow a list of rules; they happen when two people feel inspired and thrilled by discovering all they can about each other—and themselves. And they can contradict our established narratives about who we are and what we need. Newsflash: Relationships involve the continuous possibility of hurt, disappointment, and embarrassment. And yet a budding relationship won’t survive if you waste your time with face-saving, pride-preserving tactics.

Spending an evening, or a whole day, with someone you barely know runs counter to our evolutionary instinct to stick with our known pack.
