If you want there to be more dates, then it is advisable you avoid committing the following date crimes:

  1. Checking your phone

If you are out on a date, whether it be in a restaurant or a park, keep your phone usage to a minimum. There is nothing more disheartening than thinking that you are less important than your date’s phone and who else they’re talking to. A date is about spending time with your significant other, so you should give them your undivided attention and actually engage in conversation. A phone screen should not take precedence over the woman you care for, unless it is essential.

  1. Talking about yourself too much

Being open and talking to your date about what is going on in your life or how your day went is crucial for an open, healthy relationship. Something to remember though is there is a fine line between talking about yourself and divulging your life story. For example, constantly talking about people your date has never even heard of and things they have done in the past can be quite alienating. Another thing to avoid is trying to out- do her and bring every conversation topic back to yourself. If she says “I had a bad day at work” don’t cut her off and say that your day was worse because of x, y and z. The conversation should be balanced. Talk about yourself for your significant other to learn more about you but don’t avoid asking her questions and listening attentively. The vast majority of women will always appreciate being listened to.

  1. Being too clingy

Some women are not pro PDA (public displays of affection). Not everyone is a fan of holding hands all of the time and kissing in public places. This typically becomes apparent after the first few dates and how you act around each other usually happens organically but avoid smothering your date. Also, you don’t need to share everything. You are your own person and so is the woman that you’re dating. You can have your own friends and your own plans independent of each other. This doesn’t mean the relationship is not strong, it means it is stable enough that you can both do your own thing and still remain close. It also gives you time to be away from that her so when you are together you enjoy it more. There’s a fine line between acting lovingly towards a woman and being clingy. A needy boyfriend can often come across as unappealing.

  1. Dressing to not impress

Dressing to not impress

It’s not overly attractive to show up with terribly ill-fitting or unclean clothes, hair etc. It’s not necessary to wear a suit 24/7 but women do appreciate it when you put a little effort into your appearance before going on a date. When you dress well you feel well and that can extend to how your date perceives you. If you’re not comfortable in certain clothes or styles, don’t force yourself to wear them just to impress her. Firstly because if you are uncomfortable it will translate in your body language and make your date feel on edge and secondly, you shouldn’t be trying to be something you’re not.

  1. Scoping the talent

Many women are of the opinion that there’s nothing more upsetting than catching your date eyeing up another woman. It can make her feel self-conscious as well as insecure and why would you want your date to feel like that for the sake of a lingering glance or inappropriate comment concerning another woman’s appearance. It depends on the couple and how they perceive it individually, but usually its best to totally avoid this as it may end in unwanted agitation or despondency.

  1. Don’t be late

This is just simple manners. There’s a huge stereotype that all women are late because they spend too much time getting ready but this isn’t always true. Men can also be the culprit. Being late occasionally is fine but if it’s a reoccurring thing it could lead to some tension or arguments. You should never leave your date waiting on you for every planned meet-up. If you are running late, contact them preferably a phone call but a text will do if you can’t talk. A human voice always beats the written word.
