There are no golden rules to every situation, but in general, the best advice I have to offer from my own experience is this: 1). Be patient!!! (Guys are much slower to think "long-term" relationship), 2). Let him call you, and don't sit around waiting for him to call, 3). Don't analyze what he does and doesn't do (because it will drive you crazy and you will likely be wrong), 4). Go with the flow (pressure on a guy for a commitment - doesn't work), 5). Be fun and happy, and put yourself first (Guys hate drama, and they like fun, confident women).
When you meet the right guy, you'll have a chemistry that neither of you can deny. The relationship should be relaxed and fun. Don't start with a bunch of expectations. Keep in mind that you will be fine no matter what happens. And remember, it's OK to be alone sometimes!
