New rules for dating via facebook
Here are some of my guesses: On texting: Obviously, never text him first, even if you’re married with three kids. Don’t write on his wall, don’t send him Facebook messages, don’t let him see any of your photos—keep him on a limited profile view.
Don’t interact with any mutual friends you may have. You can pretend you’re receptive to a booty call, but when suitor arrives at your apartment, don’t answer the door.

While we admit that fixing the above issue wholesale would require a total brain-scrub of the world's populace, we are prepared to offer a few date-making tips for all you hopeless (emphasis on the hopeless) romantics.
