No one doubts that the rules have changed when it comes to dating, but over the years, a few things have managed to stay exactly the same.
Being authentic versus trying to be someone you think you should be is always the safest bet.
Going overboard telling him why you don't need a man doesn't give him a whole lot of room to imagine being in your life.Communication research has shown that men form their thoughts and articulate them at a different pace than women do.Count to 10 in your head before speaking again and give your date a chance to jump in -- 99 percent of the time, a man will continue talking if you don't interrupt him. The faster you move your hand forward trying to grab it, the more out of reach it floats. When we have healthy self-esteem, we lean back a little more, watch as things unfold and trust the process. Do you seem to go on scores of dates and talk to lots of men online but you never seem to make a connection or meet your man?If so it is likely you are making one or more of the ‘5 Big Dating Mistakes’.
Here are the 5 Big Dating Mistakes that women make, and what to do instead.1.Approach Dating With An Agenda So many of my women clients approach dating with an agenda and it really works against them and their success with dating.They are looking for their man, and if they don’t see him straight away in any of the men who contact them the man gets dismissed immediately and written off without the chance of another date to explore the connection (or lack thereof) further.And if they do get to the date stage, the woman carries that agenda to their date as well with less than satisfying results.It may seem counterintuitive to say don’t have an agenda when dating, after all surely the whole reason we date is to meet ‘your man’ right? Ultimately and long term this is the desire, however you drastically reduce your chances of getting to that stage if you approach dating with an agenda.At this stage in the game it is far better to view dating for what it is – a chance to meet and be around members of the opposite sex for coffee, walks, chatting and so on.
