From dating magazine
The piece — structured as a slideshow — included specific guidelines for scenarios titled "At the bar," "On a date," "In a relationship," and "In bed."In response to the backlash, the publication first removed some of the article, which was written by pick-up-artist Nick Savoy — notably the "in bed" section — and noted that it "had not met the editorial standards." Later, the entire piece was taken down from the site. It assumes there are places or situations where a woman could be deemed "unreasonable" if she doesn't want to talk to a stranger, completely removing her agency to make her own decisions.

Twitter users have made some helpful edits to the piece.

I repressed my desire for dating and relationships with the opposite sex and decided that courtship was the “holier” course of action for my life. But my immature mentality left no room for error, so I ended up staying in the relationship far longer than I should have—which caused heartbreak and a whole lot of wasted time. The Church has often created a “fear culture” around the topic of dating—putting so much pressure on singles to find the “right person.” On the other hand, the culture at large defines dating as this feel-good, romantic, emotionally-driven, sexual experience.Sometimes, rather than trying to navigate through the world of dating in a healthy way, we either avoid it or continue to do it in an unhealthy way.Consent is never brought up."If I want to wear a short skirt or a tank top, and I'm at the club and I'm having fun with my friends and I feel sexy, I'm not DTF," she explained.She also broke down how affirmative consent — "yes" means "yes" rather than simply "no" means "no" — still applies in the bedroom and everywhere else.
