Our life is governed by rules from childhood to adulthood; eat your vegetables, don't run down the stairs, don't be late to work. Even our love life seems to be governed by rules.
18 years ago the dating world was introduced to a book called The Rules that we were meant to follow in order to guarantee a perfect love life. In those days before online dating there were rules like: Don't ask a man on a date! Don't ask him to dance first! Don't call him first! Don't accept a date for Saturday if he asks you after Wednesday!
Now that we're in 2013, it's clear there are no finite dating rules. There's no magic secret we can all follow to find the man of our dreams.
But according to Jenni Trent-Hughes, eHarmony's relationship expert, there is one tip that will help to bring you success or at the very least, remove some of the obstacles you may have stumbled over in the past...
THROW OUT THE RULE BOOK!
Jenni told us, "Rules are like walls and sometimes walls need to be demolished to let the light in. Step outside your comfort zone and see what happens - be the dater you want to be not the one you've been told to be."
Take a look at more of Jenni's top tips for rule-free online dating below...
