Dating Tip 6: Be a giver. Don’t just think of what you can take from another person. Think about what you can give him/her. Fast forward to the future. “Is this someone I want on my resume?” Swap spit with people you respect. This means: No more mo-peds! (moped: fun to ride, but you wouldn’t want your friends to see you). Quit using each other. Mutual giving is way more fun than mutual taking.
