The rules for online dating ellen fein
BECOME A FAN Ellen Fein is a graduate of New York University and lives on Long Island, New York, with her husband and two children.
Ever since she and Sherrie Schneider began weekly meetings in a Chinese restaurant years ago, lamenting their dating woes and discussing their friends' relationships, the two have been formulating and formatting their rules for dating that have now become so popular.
Millions of women around the world are meeting men on the Internet, or they've met in person and are corresponding by e-mail.
But though e-mail and Net-based dating services have revolutionized the dating landscape, they've created their own pitfalls and challenges.
You are safe about it, you don't have men pick you up at your house or your apartment, you meet them at a coffee bar for an hour with a very filled street.
You -- you write your ad, very briefly as if you -- as if a limousine is waiting to take you somewhere, and you don't have time to talk about how your last relationship didn't work out, and how your ex-husband or your ex-boyfriend hurt you. When they say what are you looking for, you say the least involved thing, a date.
The women who wrote the seminal — some say retrograde — 1995 dating guide “The Rules” have updated their book for the 21st century, but haven’t changed the main rule for women: Play hard to get.
Never Facebook, email or text a man you want to date, according to Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider, the original “Rules” girls. RELATED: THIS IS WHO NEW YORK WOMEN DESCRIBE AS 'MR.
Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider met 15 years ago, and have been formulating and formatting their rules for dating since then.
The first book, THE RULES, was highly successful and spawned several spin-offs, adaptations, and parodies, written by other authors.
