If you're single, you'll understand how hard it can be to find the right man. After a while, it becomes frustrating to keep going out on dates that won't lead to anything long term. When the frustration sets in, mistakes are made. All women slip up on occasion, and it's probably to be expected after looking around for a while. Here are four dating mistakes all women make at some point in their lives.
Being too eager
I have probably been guilty of this in the past, but it's sometimes hard to contain the enthusiasm when you've been on a great date! If you get the urge to call or text him numerous times a day, you need to learn to stop yourself. Nothing scares men more than overenthusiastic women. It makes them feel stifled if you're always there. This mistake is hugely common, but something you will need to get under control if you want to see someone again.
Social media stalking
Facebook and Twitter have made it very easy to check up on potential new boyfriends, and let's be honest, it's something we've all done. A certain amount of "checking up" on who you're dating could be considered sensible, but be careful not to cross the line. A friend of mine was on a date with a man she'd looked up on Facebook, and she rather embarrassingly let slip that she'd seen the photos of a trip he was telling her about. Naturally, he found that creepy, and she never saw him again.
Male bashing rants
Speaking of social media, there is one other thing besides stalking that can really put men off. Male bashing rants. Everyone has that one friend who posts a daily whine about how she hates being single, that all men suck, and that all men are the same. It's really off-putting to see a woman making scathing verbal attacks on men, and any guys who may have been interested in you will soon change their minds!
I'm sure you've all seen a woman out on a date with a man, and instantly been able to tell that it was a first date by the way she acted. It's always best not to be the woman who is constantly pulling her top down to show off more cleavage, or hitching up her skirt to show more leg. It's not attractive. Ever. Sadly, at some point, we've probably all done it. Most of us learned to quit it once we passed the age of eighteen, but some still continue to do it well into their thirties.
