A Modern Girl’s Guide To The Mammoth Dating Mishaps To Avoid

When it comes to dating, most of us want to get it right first time. There’s nothing quite like getting all excited for a first, second, fifth or even four hundredth date and going oh so well. When you do or say the wrong thing, it can be mortifying, even worse when you have no idea that you’ve done or said anything wrong in the first place. And while to some of you it might give you something to laugh at with the girls, most of us want to avoid that where we can.

Today’s modern dating world is so different to what it was way back when. Dating is quicker, easier, and freer than ever before. And with that, comes a lot more chances to mess up. So, if you’ve just got yourself back in the dating game, or you’ve been around for a while and want to finally get it right, here’s a sweet and simple guide on how not to make the mammoth of mistakes when you’re on your next date.

Get The Name Right

So first things first, you’re going to want to remember your dates name. This might sound like an obvious one, but you really would be surprised. We’re modern women after all. How can we be expected to remember a date’s name when he may not be around next week? But, if you want any hope of him being around next week, really try and nail that name.

Get The Facts Right

Dating faux pas number two would be forgetting some very important facts. We all want to make a good first impression, so you’re going to want to avoid a colossal mix up of information if you can. Talking to Mr X and his cat and suddenly realizing that it was Mr Y that had the cat, and Mr X has a cat allergy, is not the one. So do whatever you can to stick to the facts for the right person and pronto!

Juggle Multiple Dates With Ease

Next, when you’re dating more than one guy at a time, you’re going to need to learn how to nail the multiple dating scene. And never assume that it’s going to be easy. You’ve got feelings to consider and your already overbooked schedule to work with too. And make sure that you don’t get caught out on your multiple dates by the other guy because then you’ll end up losing both.

Never Judge A Book By Its Cover

Then there’s the world of online dating to contend with. It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s definitely the way the game is going. So getting on board with it will widen your search area. But, be sure to keep your judgements to yourself. If you online date and put too much emphasis on looks, you might just get it wrong. We all know that drop dead gorgeous guy that’s an absolute ass and he knows it.

Only Take On What You Can Handle

And while we’re on the subject of online dating, let’s make sure that you only take on what you can handle. You might want to go for the works, but it could all get a bit too much too fast. So figure out how to cancel tinder plus because you do not need the international dating function when you head on vacation. Instead, keep your circles close and focus on one guy at a time (two at most)!

Never Give The Wrong Impression

Next, you’re going to want to make sure that you never, ever give off the wrong impression. No matter what the right impression means to you, be sure to stay to who you are. Look like yourself and act like it too. You don’t want to be taken for something you’re not and get hurt in the process.

Don’t Talk About Other Dates (Or Your Ex)

Don’t be that girl. Don’t be the one that sits and talks on and on about how bad Mr X was or why Mr Y just sucked. The guy you’re currently sat across from will not take to you bad mouthing other dates too well. And can you blame him? And while we’re at it, never ever talk about your ex. You’ll either seem too hung up on him or like the crazy ex-girlfriend that can’t let things lie. Either way, it’s a no-no.

Never Come On Too Strong

Because nobody likes a bunny boiler. Avoid openly stalking him if you can, and never let him know that you have tabs on all of his social media - it won’t win you any points, that’s for sure.
