10 Dating Mistakes Men Make When They're Interested In  A Woman
Want to win her heart? Here are 10 things to avoid like a social disease.

7) Not listening
Very few non-physical qualities are more appealing to a woman than a man who actually listens to them.  And conversely, nothing is quite so off-putting as a guy who doesn’t.

8) Insisting on discussing topics not of interest to his date
One of the key elements of successful dating is establishing a rapport.  A guy blathering on endlessly about subjects that are fascinating only to him, will most certainly assure his first date is also his last.

9) Being a “yes” man
Being overly solicitous and agreeing with everything his date says may initially be quite refreshing and appealing to her.  Soon, however, a man’s refusal to offer an opinion of his own and reluctance to demonstrate he has a backbone, will cause her to lose respect for him, and without that, the relationship is dead-in-the-water.

10) Regaling his date with stories of his wild past
A guy’s buddies may be infinitely amused by his tales of drunken debauchery, but confessing his ill-advised exploits on a date, no matter how ‘hilarious,’ is a crap shoot at best.  While his date may be entertained, she may just as easily question his character and judgment.  The smart guy keeps his liquor-soaked nostalgia to himself.

The above is by no means a comprehensive list.  There are virtually hundreds of things a man can inadvertently do to alienate his date.  On the other hand, if a guy is really attracted to you, there are only about two sure-fire ways of throwing cold water on his “fire:” 1) Tell him that under no circumstances will you ever have sex with him; or 2) Tell him you’re a dude.

Change Of Heart: Now She Wants Him Back

By

Question: My ex and I broke up several months ago after five years.
