Have your past dating experiences created a negative mindset, where all potentially new encounters and romances are doomed to failure? Are you typically pessimistic about your dating outcomes and about the likelihood of your next romantic partner being a cut above those previous partners who may have hurt you or disappointed you?
Are you rude, even unintentionally rude, when dating? Do you break conversation for a quick Facebook update or find yourself periodically checking your phone while your date attempts to maintain conversation? If so, you might be doing more damage to your dating life than you think!
Are you a victim of the green-eyed monster? Does jealousy overcome you when dating, or is your current or any past dating partners the jealous type? Here’s why, when it comes to dating, going green is rarely a good thing!
A little enthusiasm is generally a good thing, but being over eager to push a new relationship too far forward too fast can be frightening for your dating partner and has the opposite effect, ending the relationship prematurely. Take your time and enjoy the early stages and the pace will set itself.
There’s nothing wrong with a little enthusiasm, but if you’re over-zealous and smothering your date with proclamations of love and suggestions of co-habitation as early as the first date, then don’t be surprised if your dating partner doesn’t match your eagerness and stops returning your calls.
