We came up with a few major indicators that you’re not trying hard enough – and it’s preventing you from meeting women. Don’t make the same mistakes as the other men out there and get ahead with some of our expert advice.
Your Dating Website Profile Isn’t Filled in Completely
You’re Late to Meet Her
This is one of the cardinal sins that you can make on a first date. Being late, especially on a first date, sends all kinds of negative signs to a woman, and you should be surprised if she even sticks around to wait for you. If you’re going on a date, make sure you’re on time. If you’re late, not only is she going to feel like you don’t care about seeing her, she’s also going to think you’re flaky. Obviously, unexpected things come up, but make being on time a huge priority. You’ll also get a bad reputation if you’re continuously late to meet people.
You’re on Your Phone the Entire Time
When you’re on a date, your ear should not be attached to your phone and your fingers should not be glued to the touch screen. In fact, your phone should be off or on vibrate, tucked into your pocket and only picked up in emergencies. There’s nothing more insulting to another person – whether a date or a friend – than when you pick up the phone in the middle of dinner or wherever you happen to be together. Obviously, you have to take a call sometimes or check work e-mail, but if your eyes are glued downwards as you text and e-mail in the middle of a date, the woman you’re with is going to be angry. Not only is it generally rude, but she’s going to think that you’re so unconcerned with her wellbeing and feelings, and it makes you look self-centered.
