Dating Mistakes

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

The saying goes that there is someone out there for everyone and we are on a mission to make sure that you meet that special someone. We have rounded up some of the most common dating mistakes that could be preventing you from finding your ideal partner.

Going back to your ex

Yes, you miss having someone there all the time, someone who knows everything that there is to know about you and someone with whom you feel comfortable. However, your ex is your ex for a reason, if you were meant to be together, you would have stayed together. Going back to your ex is easy to do, but is not a good idea in the long run. It will stop you from meeting someone new and will create more pain than it is worth.

Being too fussy

Being incredibly fussy is an unconscious avoidance method to stop yourself from meeting someone who you think will break your heart. The more negative experiences you have, the more cautious you will become.

Try to reduce your list of ‘essential’ qualities one by one, until you have an open-minded view of what you are looking for. After all, your perfect match might not fit your usual criteria.

Leaving men to make the first move

We are in the twenty-first century, so it’s perfectly acceptable for women to make the first move and it’s essential for lesbian relationships to begin. If you’re a woman and looking to meet someone, then you should start contacting people whom you like the look of.

Expecting miracles

If you have been single for a long time, we are sorry to say that online dating isn’t a miracle way to meet someone. For most people, it can take many months to meet someone special, but by joining a dating website you are showing that you are keen to meet someone. You are also drastically increasing your chances of finding ‘the one’, by exposing yourself to thousands of new people.
