Whether you're dating again after a nasty divorce or playing the field via Tinder, dating can be hard work. Not only are there so many online dating sites to choose from, but the dating rules that applied in your 20s no longer work now that you're in your 40s.

On this episode of Forever 39, we review the dating rules that are no longer in, while also discussing the ones that will always always be in, no matter how old you are. For this segment, our discussion is based on an article published in Glamour that lists five outdated relationship rules that need to be given the heave-ho.

Glamour says these dating rules no longer apply, but do we agree? And what do you think?
