So how do you go about dating in your mid 20s?
Here is a list of things you should know about dating by the time you are 25
1. Don’t assume you are in a relationship
After dating a guy for a while and things are great don’t assume you are in a relationship. Things could be good and you are ready to get serious but is he? Ask him what you are in a relationship or even if he is seeing other people. Keep in mind that just because you are dating does not translate to being in a serious relationship with the person.
2. Gifts are important
Receiving flowers and other gifts from a guy means he is thinking of you a lot. In a relationship you should be sure the guy cares and values you. This is evident when he makes sweet gestures here and there.
3. A man should not complete you
Your happiness does not lie in a man. True happiness comes from self-sufficiency. The ability to love someone else lies in your ability to love yourself. A man should not complete you, know yourself then let it be the foundation of any relationship.

4. The chase is fun, but only at first
Playing hard to get in the beginning will help weed out the guys who are not serious. Anyone who is not seriously interested will not pursue you which will be good riddance. Whoever sticks around is the person you should consider dating because there interest in you is genuine. However, don’t overdo it and end up chasing away good men.
