Three Month Rule

Time Out - Three Month Rule


One of my best friends has a “three-month rule” and she swears by it. She doesn’t have sex with a guy until they have dated for at least three months. Now I on the other hand, couldn’t give a shit about three months. If I like you, I will know within three minutes and if I want to make love to you then I will. But this whole concept of waiting three months took me way pass sex and closer to the notion of who deserves to be in my personal space for the next three months. Further, leaving me to question not what I expected from a guy, but what I expected from myself within the next three months. Will I have lived up to the goals I set for myself by August 22nd???

        With that being said, I am going to take this whole “three-month rule” concept to the next level. Within the next three months I challenge all girls to set guidelines for themselves and follow them like the bible. I’m going to set a few for myself and as you read, I invite you to mix and mingle. If number 3 sounds like you, live by it and if number 7 isn’t you, trash it. Bottom line – Let the strides you make within the next three months act as the stepping stones to your “ happily ever after”.

        Here are my first ten, now you add to the list – and remember to check in with yourself on AUGUST 22nd!!

  • NUMBER 1 – Don’t let FEAR of the unknown hold you back.
  • NUMBER 2 – Recognize your STRENGHTH and use it.
  • NUMBER 3 – Do not, I repeat DO NOT, put up with any bullshit in your life
  • NUMBER 4 -Seize your “ Tina Turner Moment”!!
    (Meaning: Be willing to leave it all behind and walk away with only your NAME and your DIGNITY.)
  • NUMBER 5 – Only kiss him, if YOU like him.
  • NUMBER 6 – Believe in yourself even when your friends DON’T.
  • NUMBER 7 – Wear ugly panties on the first date so you
    DON’T give it up. (smile)
  • NUMBER 8 – Be responsible for you own HAPPINESS.
  • NUMBER 9 – Be REALISTIC about what you can achieve.
  • NUMBER 10 – Don’t be AFRAID to be alone.

  1. Excellent goals Q! I’ll add an extra one to mine “Get Over Yourself & Let Life Happen”

    Great Post :-)

  2. I LOVE NUMBER 1O. WOMEN ALWAYS ARE AFRAID TO LEAVE A SITUATION OR A RELATIONSHIP FOR FEAR OF BEING ALONE AND MANY DONT REALIZE THAT WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES ANOTHER DOOR OPENS.

  3. My favorite is Number 7. That is hilarious.

  4. I like this post. Sometimes we all need to stop and take a “time out” and look at our lives and evaluate the progress we have made. This is an important step in the personal growth process. I will definitely be checking in with you in 3 months.

  5. Great post.

    Here are my sayings:
    1) never give up your dream
    2) wise is the person to listen to others and gain insight
    3) I’m not responsible for your stupidity.
    4) love your mate even when it seems impossible
    5) be you
    6) if you argue, yell or give a person a hard time, accept responsibility, apologize and move on. If the other person walks away because of this, they have the right to
    7) be fortunate and give back

  6. Number 8 – this is the truth.

  7. I’m completly digging Number 3.

  8. the rules are great to live by – I also do the panty thing because I just dont know if i will give it up too soon. But my last boyfriend that I had for 3 years saw my big granny drawers and stayed!

  9. 3 Month Rule. We do need to hold ourselves accountable for or own sucess.
