You have been dating and dating, hoping to find your Prince Charming. You have been dreaming of him and imagining how and where this would happen. Despite all this, you are still single, ending one relationship after the other, and never getting to your so much wished for happy ending. Has it ever occurred to you that it is not always the guys fault? Have you analysed your dating pattern and your behaviour in this area? Well, maybe you should. Without saying that you are the only one to blame.
Here are a few mistakes youíd better try to avoid when dating:
Ruling out too quickly
Thatís a big mistake many women make when dating. For instance, if they are browsing online profiles they take a look at the picture, read a few words, and quickly move on. When going on a date, they come with an already prepared plan B - the exit strategy in case they donít fall in love with the guy during the first 10 minutes. Do you recognise yourself in one of these scenarios? If so, maybe you should consider giving your guys a chance? Think if the situation was opposite? Would you succeed to impress someone in a few minutes? Is the picture on your online profile so mind blowing that he would fall in love with you only by looking at it?
Dating with a wedding agenda
Is your goal focused on getting married this autumn? Well, itís already April. You might consider postponing the wedding for a while until you find the right Mr. One. Having a wedding agenda even before you had your first date with your future husband is one of the biggest mistakes, if not the biggest of all, that a woman can make. This rigid planning puts a lot of pressure on both parties. Dating is supposed to be fun and casual, a way of having a great time and knowing each other. A date is not an interrogatory, and people donít fall into fixed categories. You cannot get to know your guy just by having him answer to a long list of questions. Moreover, this approach might just scare him off even before you had a chance.
Setting too high standards
Nobody says you have to marry the first guy coming your way, but sometimes setting too high standards might be why you are still single. You have a nice career, a good salary, and you feel very proud that you achieved all of this yourself. You are, therefore, looking for a life partner that is at least as good as you. Are you sure you are measuring with the right tools? Marital happiness has little to do with professional achievements. A relationship is more about common interests and a compatible vision on life.
