The 4 Most Common Mistakes that Women Make When Dating

When it comes to dating, neither men nor women can claim that they don’t make a lot of mistakes. Making mistakes is absolutely fine, because everyone makes mistakes, but repeating them again and again is something that you should ensure doesn’t happen. To err is to be human, but sometimes, there are certain mistakes that you can very well avoid. That is why we have decided to point out some of the most common mistakes that women tend to make when they are dating:

1. Discussing long-term commitment too soon

There is always a time and a place to discuss your future plans, but most women tend to make the mistake of over thinking scenarios and jumping to conclusions too soon. Men in general, aren’t afraid of commitment, but they do prefer taking things slowly and letting them all fall into place, rather than jumping head-on into a relationship.

For any long-term commitment to work out, you need to make sure that you get to know a bit about the person first. That is why all women should relax and not even think about long-term commitment during the first couple of months of dating. Just enjoy his company and life as a whole. Enjoy the process as the relationship naturally develops.

2. Unpacking the baggage of past relationships

Let’s get one thing straight. Everyone has baggage, and there is no one who hasn’t had their heart broken in past relationships. Over a period of time, old wounds heal and you learn to love again and begin dating. However, if you end up talking about your past relationships with your date, then you are already rocking the boat. No man wants to hear about your past experiences in the early stages of the relationship, so make sure that you’re not sharing too much information. Take the time to get to know him rather than focusing on the past.

3. Turning the date into a job interview

This is something that a lot of women are guilty of when they are dating. It generally puts men off, since they aren’t applying for a job position, they are looking for someone to date. Therefore, don’t ask them tons of questions, since many then feel like they are being “interviewed” and you aren’t having an actual conversation with them.

4. Being unappreciative and ungrateful

Majority of the women don’t realize that they are appearing ungrateful and unappreciative, but you should make sure that you are grateful and courteous to your date at all times. Men go through a lot of trouble to make sure that you have a good time and the date goes smoothly, so show them a little appreciation.

      Good advice! (Especially for first dates!)

      Bringing up exes and past relationships is a real downer.

      The whole idea of those early dates is to see if you can establish a nice rapport, have things in common, and find out if you have chemistry.

      If both people don't walk away feeling like they had an enjoyable time odds are there won't be a "second date".

      Dating is suppose to be a FUN social activity.

      No one is asking you to decide on whether to cut the red wire or the blue wire! Relax! It's just lunch, dinner, a play, a concert, or whatever. Enjoy!
