Enter the D8able five date rule.
Our five date rule doesn’t focus on how many sunsets occur between the time you meet and the time you umm greet your prospective love interest. Our five date rule focuses on something far more important, something many of us choose to ignore. The D8able five date rule explores what really happens during the preliminary time spent between you and your potential significant other. Our five date rule helps you to read the signals during your early dating life with someone.
