Dating blunders

The following is a list of ten dating mistakes men make that quickly send your hope of a possible ongoing relationship into the crapper (Sadly, you’ll probably recognize more than a few of these from past dates-gone-wrong).

1) Trying to move things along too quickly Very few things are as much of a turn-off as a guy who’s discussing plans for dates seven, eight and nine, as the appetizers are being served on date one.

He is likely to be perceived as desperate, controlling, stalker-ish or all three.2) Not making definite plans or having a specific idea where he wants to go on a date Especially early on in the dating process, suggesting a specific time, date and place for a romantic rendezvous is very important.

Planning indicates a man cares enough to put a little thought into his date.

But, potential mates are probably judging you and perceiving your bio as overly parading your looks and accomplishments, according to research from Taylor & Francis.

The no-nos of picking up women in bars are fairly obvious. Online dating, on the other hand, is a bit more nuanced.A guy blathering on endlessly about subjects that are fascinating only to him, will most certainly assure his first date is also his last.9) Being a “yes” man Being overly solicitous and agreeing with everything his date says may initially be quite refreshing and appealing to her.Soon, however, a man’s refusal to offer an opinion of his own and reluctance to demonstrate he has a backbone, will cause her to lose respect for him, and without that, the relationship is dead-in-the-water.10) Regaling his date with stories of his wild past A guy’s buddies may be infinitely amused by his tales of drunken debauchery, but confessing his ill-advised exploits on a date, no matter how ‘hilarious,’ is a crap shoot at best.They’re your “ex’s” because they’re part of your past.Best to leave them there.4) Offering to split the bill No law dictates that a man, simply by virtue of his sex, is required to pay on a date.
