Common dating mistakes men make
As a matchmaker, I witness a lot of stories that involve how a newly mature-minded man had to go through certain guys to realize what not to do for previous potentials moving forward.
It’s always the same: relationships three and six months in length and then “something suddenly happened.” I see a lot of guys who are seen as needy because their job allows for a more open schedule and their dater has a stricter schedule.
When I was younger, I had to learn that although I was attracted to older men, they never wanted to plan anything.
This was not because they were being irresponsible, but it was because they already felt working from 9 a.m. was too scheduled and they wanted everything else to be on a whim.
Finding a guy who has the same working schedule and career goals can be really ideal when it comes to longevity. If you are dating someone, they deserve some sense of time and effort. It’s so much more authentic and endearing to hear your lover’s voice.
No one is ever too busy to send a heart emoticon to you or to say “I’m thinking about you” during his day at some point. We all know the 40-year-old dating a 22-year-old is for giggles. Love should be an easy reward and should be even and mutual. Sometimes chemistry just dies and there’s nothing you can do. Take every date opportunity as a chance to grow into a smarter and better dater.
Albert Einstein said, “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” This seems especially true when it comes to dating.You may accidentally call your date Bob when his name is Bill.You may spill a glass of red wine on his nice, new suit.You might get a glob of spinach stuck in your teeth (which you’ll notice two hours after dinner). But some women make mistakes by not thinking ahead and not being aware of what they’re doing at the moment. Talking about long-term commitment too soon Although it is untrue that all men are afraid of commitment, most prefer to ease into the subject slowly and after plenty of time spent getting to know their partner.It is a mistake to fish around for clues as to how your date feels about “your future together.” The first weeks and months of dating should be devoted to getting acquainted and enjoying each other—without the pressure of “what lies ahead.” If dating is destined to grow into a long-term relationship, you will both know when the time is right to bring it up.
