7 Dating Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
In this modern and busy life, many women say that it’s not only difficult to find the right partner, but also to find and to keep him. But usually when dating someone that you really like, you can make some dating mistakes than can keep him away rather than keep him interested in you. Here are the 7 dating mistakes and how to avoid them:
Dating mistake #1 – Talking too much about you
It’s normal in the beginning of a relationship for you to want to get to know him as much as possible and you two to become closer. But if you immediately start to talk only about yourself and try to explain your whole life, you’ll get the opposite effect. In order not to frighten and bore him with your long talk about yourself, don’t talk only about you and what you like, but let him talk about him and what he likes to do. This way you’ll also learn what he likes and what he likes to do, and maybe you’ll find that you have something in common. If he’s the one for you, you’ll have a lifetime ahead of you to talk and get to know one another.
Dating mistake #2 – Not giving him enough space
Men usually want to be in the role of a hunter and usually don’t want someone that constantly runs after them. If you’re constantly trying to call him, sending him text messages etc., he’ll probably lose interest in you. Leave the phone aside and wait for him to call you. It’s good for him to know that you care about him, but let him miss you and let him be the one that calls you.
Dating mistake #3 – Acting about things
When you go on a date, don’t act like you absolutely love everything that he does. If he loves some band that you really can’t stand, don’t act like you love all of their songs. Or if he likes to do sports and you don’t like to break a sweat, don’t act like you absolutely love to go to the gym. You might think that a little acting won’t harm your date. But what if he really starts to like you and you to like him and you want to be in a relationship with him, will you continue to act?
Dating mistake #4 – Expecting him to change
If you don’t like something about him, don’t expect him to change. You have to know that people don’t change easily. If there are many things that you love about him, and a few that you don’t like, then you need to learn to accept his flaws. Don’t expect that he will adapt to all of your expectations in a second and be the perfect man of your dreams.
Dating mistake #5 – Spying on him
Are you tempted to ‘borrow’ his cell phone to find out with who he was talking last night? Or are you tempted to ‘accidentally’ walk into the same bar or restaurant where he’s meeting his friends? Don’t do it. There is no faster way to destroy your relationship and to lose his trust than to be caught spying.
Dating mistake #6 – Neglect him
Whether you are in a relationship or you’ve just started dating, you shouldn’t ignore and neglect him. Yes, you probably have busy schedule and you want to go out with your friends and have fun doing other things. But you also have to go out with him from time to time, not just go on a date and then not accepting his invitation for another date for weeks because you’re ‘busy’. If you don’t want to or you feel like you don’t have time to go out with him, then you need to ask yourself if you really want to be in a relationship with him.
Dating mistake #7 – Rush things
Don’t rush him towards anything, especially not on the first date. Don’t rush him to kiss you on the first date, don’t rush him to be in a serious relationship after few dates and don’t even think about rushing things towards more intimacy. There aren’t rules for these things, so both of you need to be ready to do them. If you rush things, he might get scared or think that you’re desperate and you risk not to be taken seriously. So don’t rush things and wait for him to also be ready to take the next step.
