When it comes to dating, you’d be amazed by the sheer number of bad dating habits from both men and women. The situation, in some cases, is so sad that some people are staying from the dating scene altogether.
Here are some bad dating habits which don’t produce the results you want, but actually worsen the situation:
1. Whining, Begging, Or Being Desperate
If this is the approach you’re following to find a date, then it’s very, very bad. You probably should stop dating, as it makes you less attractive to your potential partner. Also, it’s a clear sign you might not be a decent person by any means. If you’re trying to manipulate people into getting your way, you’re making a big mistake.
2. Lying About Your Wants And Needs
Don’t be the person who says you want to be in a committed relationship, but all you’re really thinking of is to have a casual relationship. By doing this you’re setting yourself up for failure and endless arguments and disappointments.
3. Pressuring Him to Stay With You
A lot of people do this. The thing is it doesn’t work, and it’s really abusive once you’ve experienced it personally.
4. Attempting To Buy His Love
Just like the previous one, a lot of people do this, and this too doesn’t work at all. It’s abusive, too. If you're really that desperate to fall in love, you’re better off having the services of an escort or prostitute, because literally, that’s what you’re trying to do here anyway.
5. Ditching Someone In The Middle Of The Date
This is painful and utterly disrespectful. If the person you’re dating is decent enough, be polite and just finish the date. When the date is over, tell him or her that it won’t work out, and you wish them all the best. It’s that simple!
6. Not Showing Who You Really Are
Most people hide their preferences, opinions, and interests from their dates only to impress them, and make that person like them. It’s wrong. At the end of the day, you’re setting yourself up for resentment from the beginning. You know very well that you’ll never be the person you're pretending to be around your partner, and he or she will feel betrayed and mislead if you show them your true personality.
7. Bashing Men Who Politely Rejected You
Talking bad about someone makes you look bad, not the man or woman who rejected you politely. Even a person who has half a brain will agree that the individual who refused you did the right thing.
8. Refusing To Be Responsible After You Get Committed
This happens a lot more than you can imagine, and it occurs mostly after the wedding or after a child is born. Men and women who refuse to take any responsibility in a committed relationship often get abusive or neglectful. If you see your partner in tears and miserable over something you did, you need to rethink your life and relationship. At the end of the day, no one but you will be to blame.
9. Dating Him For Money Or Status
Sadly this happens with both women and men looking for a date. If you don’t stop doing it, eventually your girlfriend or boyfriend will figure it out sooner or later, and when they do, they’ll make your suffer.
