If I could contribute any addendum, it would probably be INAPPROPRIATE GIFT-GIVING (hello, freshman year fling who sprang an intimidatingly expensive present on me after we'd been dating 30 days, which event he insisted on referring to as our "mensiversary").

Can we get a square for "stealth date?" That was always one of my pet peeves. You know, where some guy says something like "Hey some of my friends are hanging out later, you want to get a beer with us?" and you say yes thinking it's a casual thing, but oh no, half way through the night you realize this guy totally thinks you're on a DATE date and will get all annoyed later when you don't want to kiss him. Or worse, will think you're in some sort of stealth relationship. I once had this guy actually dump me when I was completely unaware of the fact that apparently we'd been "going out" for a couple weeks. That was a weird night.

Now I'm all for getting rid of outdated dating rituals like the guy should always pay and dinner must be included, but really people, if you want to impress someone, you need to at least pony up the guts to actually ask them out.
