Relationship Expert & Coach Bree Maresca-Kramer: Top Dating Mistakes Women Make!
Dating for women today has become a difficult place full of misinformation, bad guidance, and the loss of self-honoring. Over the last half-century women have rose in freedoms with their career options, ability to make money, and independence. However, at the same time many have lost their way when it comes to dating and having healthy relationships with men. In other words, the personal success of women has risen while the dating success of women has fallen. Here are the top five reasons that has occurred:
Being The Man!
Time and again, I have to help women learn how to stop acting like the man in the relationship and instead teach them how to act like a woman. A heterosexual man who is out there looking for a woman is not interested in finding another ‘man’ to date. Men today are tired of over bearing, bossy, and demanding women. They are looking for a woman who knows how to express her femininity while still being an independent woman.
Making The Moves First!
A woman must allow the man to pursue, when she does not she is short – circuiting the dating or courting process. A lot of women do not like to hear this because they want to feel that they are the ones in control or the driver’s seat. Actually, this is the worst place for a woman to be because she loses out in the end. She misses the courtship time and blocks the man from fall head over heals for her.
When a woman comes on too strongly to a man she appears desperate, even if she is not. Yes, men like to know a woman is interested but when it is too overt it is a turn off. When a woman responds to a man’s pursuit she is letting him know she is interested. For example, if a man asks a woman out and she says “yes” that is giving him the green light. She does not have to pour it on about how great it would be to go out with him, just a simple “yes, that would be nice” will suffice.
Accepting Bad Behaviors From Men!
This has to be the worst mistake a woman can make. When a woman tolerates being treated disrespectfully or even worse abusively from a man, she is telling him he can keep doing it. In addition, she is harming her self worth at the same time. Eventually, her self-esteem will take a hard hit, which takes a great deal of concerted effort and work to repair. It is vitally important for a woman to pick a man who will adore her and treat her well today and in the future. The fact is that if he is not treating her well during the dating period it will only get worse down the road!
Forgetting To Cherish Herself First!
When a woman goes out looking for a man to fill her needs she is setting herself up for a big fall. True inner happiness and peace comes from knowing, accepting, and loving oneself first. When a woman does this she is ready for a wonderful relationship with a man who will also know, accept, and love all of her, even the parts that still need some healing.
