The stars say this is your regular dating fail.
It’s inevitable that you’re going to make mistakes when dating anyone, and some of those dating mistakes are going to be huge fails. The question isn’t how are you going to avoid making these mistakes, it’s how are you going to come to terms with your gigantic fails when it comes to dating and relationships?
Somehow, you need to make peace with your mistakes, learn from them, and move on.
If everything you did was perfect in every way, life would be incredibly boring and you’d never grow as a person. The trick is not to completely crumble when you do something wrong, embarrassing, or stupid. You need to be able to fail, but then get back up and throw yourself back into the ring.
Yep, another similarity between dating and boxing — it’s best not to be down for the count. Some of these fails end the potential relationship before it really gets going, and others become the funny story of how you met or your disastrous first date. Dating mistakes get funnier as more time passes.
Actually, a sense of humor is the greatest weapon you can have when dealing with dating mistakes or unintentionally behaving badly. By being able to not take your failure so seriously, you take the sting out of it, which can be beneficial for both parties involved.
If you take your dating mistake too seriously, you might not want to date anyone ever again — hell, you might not want to ever leave the house out of a sense of pure humiliation.
Making a mistake is one thing, but making the same mistake repeatedly is certainly a cry for help. How many times do you need to make the same mistake? If some guy sends you a dick pic, he’s probably interested in a hookup, not in dating you; it’s the same if a second, third and fourth guy send you penis pictures.
It’s fine if you just want some no-strings fun, but if you want to eventually be in a relationship, then a dick pic dude isn’t who you’ll get it from. Astrology can help you narrow down the types of dating mistakes that you are likely to make. Here’s the dating mistake you’ll make, according to your zodiac sign.
You play too many games and that can get tedious for the person you're toying with. You want to keep your date on the top of their game, but they end up feeling as if they're always losing. It's OK to slow down and just have a simple date with somebody; they don't need to constantly compete for your attention.
You tend to get swept away by how hot somebody is and not take into account that there's not much behind that beautiful face. Once you start to have your quieter types of dates — such as a home cooked meal or watching Netflix — you'll notice how boring they really are.
You have a problem mistaking mental illness for artistic talent. He's not a great storyteller because he has talent, it's because he has no filters and is going off on a manic rant. He'll talk your ear off, but not in the fun way. Geminis like talking, but not in the out-of-control way.
You're so caring that you care yourself right into the friend zone. It's good to be an empathetic, sensitive, and loving person but you don't always want to be the trusted friend. Sometimes you want to be the boo, the significant other, or the partner.
You can date anyone you want and yet, time and time again you go after the bad boy. Do you really think he'll change for you? Sure, you're amazing but he's not going to change just to fit in with your friends and family. Next time, go after someone more appropriate.
Your dating mistake is that you are too dang picky. If they don't make enough money, you won't consider them, or if you don't like how they dress, it's over before it starts. Maybe try not to focus on external things and try and get to know them for who they are.
You tend to bring up your ex a lot. A passing reference to a past relationship is OK, but nobody wants a blow-by-blow description of everything that went right and everything that went wrong with your ex.
When dating someone, you get too intense, fast. You've barely said hello and you're already asking him if he wants children and what his goals are for the future. Hold back on the third degree and let any information come out naturally; don't try to force him into a serious relationship too quickly.
It isn't that you're full of yourself, you just talk about yourself too much. You're nervous that if you don't speak, there will be dead silence, but your date can't get a word in. You're not having a conversation, you're performing a monologue. Slow down, relax, and trust that your date does have something of interest to say.
You over-plan everything and when things don't go exactly as you wish, you flip out. Let your date have some say in what you do or don't do. This will take some of the pressure off you and could lead to some very fun and surprising dates.
You can't get to know someone the old-fashioned way by going out with them and asking them questions directly. No, you have to do full cyber searches, talk to his friends and co-workers, and you even ask your friends what they think of him. You do a full-scale investigation and that's before you've had a first date. Slow your roll — the only opinion you need is your own.
You love to be in a relationship and you're willing to wait however long it takes for your potential partner to make up their minds about whether or not they want to be exclusive. You can't move on when you're waiting for them to decide if they want to be with you or not. It gives them too much power over your happiness. Cut them loose and move on to someone who knows right away if a relationship with you is worth pursuing.
