– While on the quest to find a partner, there are so many mistakes we make. Certain things we say or do can easily trigger people to lose interest quickly.
Being in the right relationship at the right time and with the right people usually feels so good. However, while on the quest to find a partner, there are so many mistakes we make. Certain things we say or do can easily trigger people to lose interest quickly.
If you’re not aware of some of the things you could be doing that makes people want to run the opposite direction, you’ll be left wondering what went wrong and feel unworthy.
Ignoring red flags
This is a common dating mistake that people often make. A lot of red flags are covered when people are infatuated. However, this is something crucial that you need to look out for because it can land you into more trouble than you anticipated.
Always look at the person you are dating from different perspectives in order to notice when things are seriously off. You can also get some opinions about them from people you trust so that you can hear the truth.
Dating because you are lonely
When you’re lonely, you’re bound to select and settle with partners not because you truly like them, but because you want someone by your side just for the sake of it.
Having someone by your side is great but having an honest foundation is even better as this prevents feelings of mistrust. Dating someone for the sake of it will only make you lonelier so, avoid this dating mistake.
Revealing much too soon
We all have some baggage that we carry, but when it comes to dating, giving too many details of your life when you barely know someone is a no-no.
Doing this gives the impression that you don’t have your life together and that you have a lot that you are dealing with. Don’t get me wrong, we are all work in progress. However, sharing too much early on can be quite the turn-off. Take everything in its own time.
Having high expectations
Having expectations ain’t a bad thing as they help you be more aware of what you want and what you are looking for when it comes to a partner.
On the other hand, it can also lead to a dating disaster. If you are just casually dating someone and expect them to be your husband right away, it means that you’re more focused on the outcome and the idea of being married rather than the actual process. Learn to be more flexible and have fun in the process. You might even end up meeting someone else who suits you more in future.
