Have you been playing the dating game for awhile only to have the results be less than satisfactory? Well, it may be because of your dating habits. Read on and you may find that you’ve been guilty of a few (if not all) of them...

 

Constantly self-deprecating

While some might see this habit as a way to project modesty, constantly talking down about and undervaluing yourself can get very old very quickly. The fact of the matter is that people are attracted to confidence. It’s a very sexy trait. While you may want to appear modest to your prospective love interest, it will be beneficial to incorporate some degree of confidence in the way you carry yourself. So, stop speaking so lowly of yourself and embrace the things that make you awesome.

 

Having a big fat ego

As much as confidence is sexy, having a massive ego can be a massive turn off. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but hear me out. There is a big difference between being confident and being an egomaniac. If you’re self-assured in the person you are, then you are confident. But if the only person that matters in your life is yourself, then you’re an egomaniac. See the difference? So, do yourself a favour and drop your ego or forever suffer a lackluster dating life.

 

Setting the bar too high

Now, I’m not saying that you should settle for the first person that pays you even an ounce of attention. What I am saying is that you need to give more people a chance. If someone doesn’t tick every box in your laundry list of “must-haves”, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they can’t be The One. While it is good to have an idea of what you want in a partner, be flexible with those ideas and you’ll open yourself up to a world of romantic possibilities. Not to mention build the foundation for a strong and healthy relationship.

 

Worrying what your friends think

Whether you don’t want to seem whipped or you don’t think your friends will like the person you’re dating, caring too much about what your friends think will inevitably have an impact on any relationship you wish to pursue. Believe it or not, your friends shouldn’t really have a say in who you date; that’s entirely up to you. So, stop letting your friends opinions keep you from dating who you want to. Go with your heart, give it time, and soon your friends will love your partner as much as you do!

 

Comparing your dating life to others

The worst thing you can do for your self esteem and your dating life is comparing it to others around you. Let me be the first to tell you that life is not a competition. So what if you’re friends are married and you’re not? That doesn’t make you a lesser person or a failure. Stop comparing yourself to others and let good things happen to you, because believe me, when you stop worrying so much they will happen!
