Taking a plunge into the dating world again after a divorce, you may find yourself making the same dating mistakes over again. These are some of the most common dating mistakes committed by women. It is important to recognize and understand them so that you will avoid repeating the same in your next dates.
1. Approaching Men First. Although most conventional dating advice encourages women to take the first step by flirting and striking a conversation, most of the women, who are struggling or having commitment issues with their boyfriends or end up with husbands who ignore them, are often those women who made the first contact. In general, women should not make the first contact and do more than a smile or a hello, no matter how attracted she is with a man. The better way can be waiting for the other person to make the next moves after showing him that you are interested. Let him take it from there. It is enough to show that you are interested but flirting is a different thing that may not bring you the results you are looking for. A man may date or marry a woman who approaches him first, but there are many times consequences later than when he is the one who first approaches the girl he wants. A man needs to participate equally in the flirting and now many women take total control of the flirting.
2. Deciding to Marry Too Soon. Another common dating mistake committed by women is that they desire marrying a man with only less than a year in the relationship. Rushing on marriage is not a good move. What many people do is to put their best foot forward in the first year and try their best not to show your flaws. In the second year, flaws from both of you will start coming out, and by the third year, you will see what you will get. The best advice is that you take your time to know each other well before deciding to get married. In the process, you will start becoming more committed in your exclusive dating relationship.
3. Quickly Jumping Into a Whirlwind Romance. As they say, men fall out of love as quickly as they fall in love. It can be such a wonderful and flattering feeling if a man you just met takes time to see you many times in a week and spends long hours talking to you over the phone. From there, you will find yourself entering into the relationship quickly. Unfortunately, as sudden as it comes, the hot romance suddenly fizzles out and burns up fast. Give adequate time to observe and know the person before embarking into a commitment. There is no problem in dating more than one person at a time as long as all parties involved know this is not an exclusive relationship yet..
4. Being Overly Chummy. How would you feel if you just met a man and yet he is telling about a guy he has an altercation with at his office or his fight with his brother or all the details of his recent root canal treatment? Remember, during the early stage of dating, you are virtually strangers so it is not good to share some intimate details about your life. Doing so would make you look desperate and worst, neurotic. The more that you talk about yourself, the more that you will be losing important time to observe your man carefully and to know if he is the right one for you. Just relax and enjoy your time together. Do not do the mistake of impressing him too much with witting banter or enumerating your accomplishments, or else, your man will be turned-off by you being overly chummy.
Avoiding these mistakes and using your female instincts can make you better relationships. If you do not want to end up suffering from the same pitfalls over again, change your ways and do not be in such a hurry to get into a new relationship. Stay away from headache and stress due to another broken relationship by avoiding the most common dating mistakes by women, as highlighted above.
