What Is The Three-Date Rule? Women Are Slamming The 'Disgusting' Rule

What Is The Three-Date Rule? Women Are Slamming The 'Disgusting' Rule

The so-called 'three date rule' has been part of modern dating parlance for some time now.

But women are starting to turn their back on the old-fashioned approach (which dictates that women should have sex with a new partner after the third date) - claiming it makes dating seem 'transactional'.

Now, a thread on Reddit has sparked a furious debate over the 'disgusting' theory and exactly where it originated from.

"Who made up the disgusting theory that if a woman doesn't agree to have sex with a man by the third date, she's not interested in them?" one asked.

"It's not just a random theory that men occasionally use, it's something that I've witnessed quite often in my past dating experiences."

She went on to explain the theory that if women don't have sex on the third date, men are more likely to ghost them.

"Men will try to pursue you hard, wine/dine you, and ask you out on a second and third date. By the third date, if you're not receptive to his sexual advances, they usually ghost right after the date," she added.

"Is this magical 'three date" rule something that men have coined because of the pickmeishas [Reddit talk for women obsessed with bagging a man]? Or is this rule something their neanderthal brains actually believe?"

She added: "The three date rule proves that men think dating is transactional. They took you out on a few dates, and now you have to 'pay them back' by the third date."

The Reddit post has received a flurry of comments with women finding the rule 'ridiculous'.

The post has received a flurry of comments with women agreeing they find the rule 'ridiculous'.

One reader commented, "Indeed. I'm not into guys who believe in this BS."

Another added, "These men see sex as transactional. It's disturbing for sure."

A third wrote, "It's simply a way of guilting women into sex, and making them want to 'prove' they're into a guy by putting out."
