Dating Mistakes That Guys Make

If you find yourself making the same dating mistakes, it is time to use a few good dating tips for men that will serve you well in the future. There are a few men’s consumer magazines that offer practical dating tips for guys and you can also get dating tips from relatives and friends who were successful in dating and who are now in healthy relationships. Even your mother and sisters can offer dating advice from a female perspective.

Buying Your Way To A Date

Too often men think that if they buy nice gifts for the women they’re interested in, this will be enough to convince the women to go out with the men and have relationships with them. You should understand that women expect more than nice gifts in order to have a great relationship with men. They want to be respected and liked for who they are and they want your quality time and understanding as well as nice gifts.

Not Being Dependable

So you are dating a nice lady and you sense that she would be a nice person to establish a relationship with. However, you have a bad habit of frequently showing up late for your dates or cancelling dates right at the last minute. Or if your date needs assistance with her car when it breaks down but you have an excuse for not doing so, your date will see you as undependable. You want to be reliable when dating a lady.

Treating Girlfriends As Second Moms

If you start to think that your girlfriend has to do the same motherly duties as your mom such as wash your clothes and cook meals regularly, drive you to work or to job interviews all of the time or even financially support you, you will not have a successful relationship because your girlfriend will feel as if she is being used by you. She is not your mother and when you treat her as such, it shows your immaturity and inability to do things on your own.

Being Too Clingy

Women are also turned off by men who are too clingy and if this has been your pattern in dating, you should stop this behavior immediately. You want to maintain adequate quality time with your sweetie but it is just as important not to have your life revolve around her. Get involved in new interests so that you will become a more well-rounded person overall and so that you will be more interesting to your girlfriend.


All guys have made these and other dating mistakes but it is not too late to make changes to your bad habits. Start by putting yourself in the lady’s shoes and ask yourself how you would feel if she had the same bad habits in the relationship, Also ask your friends and relatives to give you honest feedback on how you approach dating relationships. If your older brother says that your hygiene isn’t always the best and that you can be lazy at times, consider his comments and look for ways to improve. Finally. Maintain a optimistic outlook while improving yourself.
