Both sexes have standards when it comes to dating. Everyone is looking for that perfect someone that they can imagine building a relationship with.
When you’re left waiting for Mr. or Mrs. Right, you sometimes start to think the opposite sex is just far too picky.
It might surprise you to know that when it comes to deal breakers with dating, men and women are surprising alike in what turns them off and won’t lead to more dates. Knowing this can help you avoid a dry spell.
Not Knowing How to Communicate
Not knowing how to communicate on a date is something that a lot of women just don’t want to put up with. Things like this include not being able to talk clearly and not knowing the basic difference between commonly misused words.
Most people know how to be polite. Some don’t. If you don’t know how to be polite, that can be a deal breaker. If you haven’t mastered basic table etiquette, then you need to learn before you hit the dating circuit.
Not Taking Care of Your Appearance
Surprising, men and women aren’t looking for someone who doesn’t have any flaws. But both sexes do look for someone who takes pride in his or her appearance. This can range from clothing choice to hygiene habits.
Unresolved Personal Issues
Having experienced personal problems is nothing to be ashamed of and is normal. However, dragging these issues around with you, especially on dates is when it becomes a problem.
Not Being Dependable
Men and women are looking for someone who has a solid character. They know that if you’re not dependable, as the relationship develops, when they need someone, you won’t be the one they’ll be able to call.
Being Too Familiar Too Fast
When you date someone, there are certain physical boundaries that shouldn’t be crossed unless it’s clear that the other person is open to the contact. On a first date, you should have and expect personal boundaries.
Though it’s not easy to date in today’s world, there are plenty of good men and women looking for that special someone. Figure out what your deal breakers are and try to find someone who suits your personal preferences!
