With all due respect to Pat Benatar, love doesn't to be a battlefield; we all just need to agree on a few basic ground rules. Stop picturing what Instagram filter you’ll use and start imagining your day-to-day relationship.
So, whether you're a guy or a girl, gay or straight, looking for love or just a good lay, here are your 10 commandments of modern dating.

As long as we can all agree to that, the other commandments will fall into place.
