Do Tell: Would an Instruction Manual Help in Your New Relationship?

There are instruction manuals for almost everything these days — whether it's how to install your DVD player or how to wash your intimates — so wouldn't it make sense for people to come with them too? Of course some enjoy the thrill of feeling each other out the old-fashioned way, but do tell, if your new crush came with an instruction manual, do you think it would save you a lot of time and aggravation in the getting-to-know-you stage, or do you feel that there's no such thing as the "right way" when it comes to matters of the heart?

Ha Ha I never read the instruction manual to ANYTHING. I find the manual even more vexing than trying to figure something out on my own.

Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend: For Every Guy Who Wants to be One/For Every Girl Who Wants to Build One This is a really funny book! Quite useful for both members of the relationship :)

it may be ridiculous, but it sure would be helpful. my guy can be difficult to understand sometimes. he has come from some pretty bad relationships and it can be hard at times to get him to realize i'm not those girls. i'm not going to do the same thing they did. sometimes i have no idea what to do.

I agree, what a ridiculous idea. People are not machines with stop, fast forward and play buttons. Isn't have the fun of a new relationship getting to know this person? If you need a manual date a robot!

Well said darkangel. Everyone is different, thank goodness. Although there have been times I wish I could see an honest "review" from a guy's past relationships.

This is absurd. There is no "right" way or only one road on the matters of complex human relationship. We all know that what works with one person/couple might not work for another.
