Default 10 Things Girls Do Wrong When Dating. - 01-11-2012, 07:32 PM

10. Honesty is the Best Policy
Dating isnít always the easiest thing to do. Sometimes you think that you know the person youíre on a date with, but maybe something unexpected comes up and youíre completely thrown off by the guy. If this is the case, honesty is the best policy. Women often like to pretend that they are still interested in the guy even though they really arenít. Telling the truth during the dating stage is very important. Remember, be honest.

9. Date One Guy at a Time

This mistake may not be as common, but Iíve definitely heard my share of girls that have done it. Generally you hear it most from men in the form of bragging. Some girls decide to date multiple guys at the same time. While these guys may not be considered ďboyfriends,Ē dating many guys at once can cause an issue. Try to stick to dates with one guy. Once you realize that he isnít ďthe oneĒ or you just arenít interested in him, you can move on to the next one and wish for better luck.

8. Only Trust Reliable Resources for Advice
If youíre one of those females that has a lot of female friends, it is very likely that you have run into this mistake. Say its Saturday night, youíre at a friendís house with all of your other girlfriends. The conversation switches to advice about dating and men and without thinking, you probably let your mind soak in all of this ďadviceĒ that is thrown around. Hello, mistake! Asking advice from people who know nothing about dating is a very common mistake. Maybe itís just me, but girls with boyfriends generally arenít spending a nice Saturday night with a bunch of their girlfriends. If you want dating advice, ask someone who knows about men and relationships. (This excludes ex-boyfriends, and parents!)

7. Stay Sober
If youíve been on enough dates, your date has probably invited to take you to a bar or offered to buy you drinks for the night. Though it may not seem like one, this is most definitely a mistake. While it may be nice to have someone else pay your alcohol tab for the night, allowing your date to buy you unlimited drinks is a mistake! As great as it may be, by the end of the night, especially if you donít know your limits, you might just find yourself drunk. If your date wants to meet at a bar, try to pick a new location. Drinking may be nice, but ending a date drunk and waking up the next day without remembering much isnít fun.

6. Dress Appropriately
A few days before the date, you and a friend are at the mall shopping. You realize that you have money to spend, so you decide to put it towards an outfit that you think will make you look the best on the day of your date. While clothes may look good in the shop, donít assume that they look good on you. The mistake here is buying the wrong clothes and not trying on what you buy. Though you might think your date will enjoy all of the leg that you are showing off, try to dress ďclassyĒ as they put it. Donít go all out, your date isnít looking for you to be wearing Cinderellaís dress, but donít under-dress either.

5. Be Conversational, but Keep it Interesting
During a date, talking is probably one of the most important yet nerve-racking (for some) things to do. Some women prefer that the guy lead the conversation and ask the questions, some prefer that they lead the conversation, and others want a fine balance between the two. If youíre on a date, keep in mind what youíre talking about. Itís safe to say that your date doesnít care to hear about your first pet, your entire life story, or stories that you and your friends find funny. Sparking boring conversation is a big mistake that girls make while on a date. If the guy asks you a question, answer it and make sure that you donít find yourself going off on a tangent. Keep it simple and understandable yet interesting.

4. Donít Jump Ahead
Once youíve gotten over the bump of the first date, many girls like to pick up the phone and yap about how special and nice this new guy is. Before you know it, and without even realizing it, youíre calling this man your boyfriend. Wrong! Not only is this a bad mistake, it could really ruin the ďrelationshipĒ that the two of you had made in the course of a day. To put it easily, going on one date and calling a guy your boyfriend is just crazy. It just makes you look clingy and way to into the relationship. You can at least save all of that for when the relationship really starts!

3. Donít Become Infatuated
Another mistake that many women make is jumping the gun and thinking that a guy automatically likes them. The date is over, youíre feeling the butterflies still, and all you can think about is the ďlookĒ that he gave you. You call your best friend and the ďOMGsĒ and ďperfectsĒ seem to spew out of your mouth. Mistake! Maybe he just had something in his eye, or maybe he was just being nice and trying to make eye contact with you. No matter what, itís fatal (not really) to jump the gun and assume that the guy automatically likes you. As much as we all want to believe in the lovey-dovey ďlove at first sightĒ thing, itís very doubtful that a man has his mind made up right after the first date. Donít assume anything, for you are dating a man, and for the simple reason that you donít want your hopes to come crashing down.

2. Know Where to Find a Date
A common mistake that girls make is simply looking in the wrong places for men. Thatís right, this mistake takes place way before the dating even begins. Really, do you think that youíll find your dream man at the mall, the grocery store, or the local town festival? Iíd say no, but I guess itís all personal opinion. Though looking in the wrong places are generally the easiest places to find men, try stepping outside of the box (the box being a mile away from your home.)

1. Be Patient
Right before the date is over, maybe he asks, or maybe you offer to give your phone number to him. In your head fireworks are going off, your heart is pounding and youíre excited. Once he has the number and the date has ended, you keep tabs on your phone as if it was your source of oxygen. You wait and wait until your ringtone goes off. Big mistake. Even though he might have asked for your number or accepted it, it doesnít mean that he is going to call you in an hour, four hours, or even the next day. Donít expect or even assume that he is going to call you; itís definitely way too much stress! Fact is most men wonít call when you want them to.
