Very often a woman's attitude about men comes from their upbringing. If a woman had her father present and he treated her and her mother with love and respect that woman usually grows up with a healthy attitude about men and relationships.
However, if a woman grew up in a household where the father was disrespectful or abusive towards women or he wasn't present it is quite common for that woman to create negative beliefs about men and relationships. It is these very beliefs that often prevent her from having the relationship she desires.

3) Are you putting yourself out there? Very often I hear women say how hard it is to meet men. When I ask what they are doing to meet them they say "nothing". Or sometimes they try online dating or going to a single's event. But after one or two disappointments they give up.
Now I can understand, dating can be very frustrating. Especially if you don't know how to do it right.
You can join a gym but that doesn't mean you will get in shape. You can join an online dating site but that doesn't mean you will meet Mr. Right. You can go to a single's event but that doesn't mean the type of guy that you're looking for will be there. And more often than not he's not. So, what's a girl to do?
As human beings we often want the magic pill, the quick fix and instant results. But very often in life the things we want do not happen magically overnight. Nowhere is this more this is more true in life than in dating.
The good news is there are things a single woman can do to make dating easier, more enjoyable and to increase her chances of finding the love she is looking for. The key is to know which actions to take. That is what Smarter Dating is.
Take a good hard look at the 3 signs above. If you have answered "no" to any of them, there is a strong indication you are not ready for a relationship. If this is true, do not judge yourself. Simply notice it and do what you need to do to make sure you answer "Yes" for each part.
Because when you can answer "Yes" to each sign you will be ready for that special guy to walk into your life and when he does you will have the relationship you always wanted...the kind you deserve
