Ok so this guy I met last Sat asked me to dinner and after we ate he asked for my number. Anyways, he ended up calling me the next day asking my if I wanted to go out with him and his roommate and his roommate's girlfriend. We ended up having a great time and the night ended with a kiss...or two. lol
Now my question relates to when he called to ask me out. He had said that he wasn't supposed to call until three days later. Apparently that is the unofficial dating rule. So what other "rules" are there? Just so I am not completely in the dark about this.

Personally, I think whatever "dating rules" there are, shouldn't be followed anyway. If a guy likes a girl (or vice versa) and he wants to call before "3 days" are up, then he should call. It doesn't seem desperate, not in my eyes anyway, but it seems more like he's saying "I like you, and I wanted to see what you were up to, and if you were available for [insert event/occasion/date here]".
I've never followed any dating rules (could explain why I am single now, but that doesn't bother me) because in my eyes, rules are meant to be broken.
I've never been one to do what everyone else says, mainly because if I'm going to make mistakes, then I'm going to make my own mistakes. And maybe I'm being silly in my desire to not follow the "dating rules", but I do what makes me happy. If I want to talk to a guy, then I will call him, text him, email him, whatever.
This is of course just my opinion, everyone is different. If you want to know what people consider to be the proper etiquette of dating, that's your choice, and I hope it works out for you. But for me, I'm all about individuality. I do my own thing, and I will continue to do my own thing.1
