Dating Mistake #1: Always Expecting a Man to Pay
Too needy? Learn the solutions to six mistakes women make in love and improve your love life.
My husband, Rory, and I recently had a conversation about common mistakes women tend to make when it comes to love. He has seen women he’s dated and been in relationships with, and his female friends making these six mistakes. Rory is very insightful and I feel compelled to share them with you since I’ve made many of these mistakes. If you can relate to any of these, try these solutions and watch your love life improve.
Mistake #1: Being needy.
We all make verbal oopses. Learn how to take the sting out of slips of the tongue.
Open mouth, insert foot. It's the verbal equivalent of walking through a restaurant with toilet peper on your shoe. We've all experienced the mortification of poor verbal choices. Sometimes, embarrassing stuff just happens. Letting those blunders happen more often than not, though, is a problem that goes beyond stuff that sometimes happens.
Don't treat a teen like an 8-year old. Let go! It's your job to send them out into the world.
It’s a fact. As your kids grow up, you must grow up, too!
If you are the parent of teens, you can’t treat them the way you did when they were eight. As they grow, you have to grow. What worked with a child won’t be effective anymore. The sooner you accept that, the easier adolescence will be on all of you.
A bouquet of flowers won't get you out of trouble! Remember these tips when you're in the doghouse.
When people find themselves in the doghouse in their relationship, they react in different ways like trying to minimize the situation and their partner's emotions, ignoring their partner's anger, apologizing immediately and profusely and/or purchasing gifts to try to make amends.
If you're dating and you don't follow these rules, you are truly doomed!
So you're dating that new guy and things are going swimmingly. You basically floated home from the first date and already had the drapes picked out for the home you'd be living in together.
Y'know what? Dates like that are the kind that we all dream about and it happens to us guys too, but slow down girl before you act on those feelings!
Therefore our Tip #1 is:
Regardless of your drive and goals, you may have set up your life as a failure waiting to happen!
As a woman, many things in your life can be made into winnable games that feed your passion, soul and self-esteem. Without knowing how to make your life winnable, you give away your power and simply allow life to happen to you. This creates overwhelm, frustration, anger, anxiety, depression and physical illness.
Feeling out of control of your life? Learn how you give your power away daily and how to avoid it.
As women, we are experts at one thing that permeates every aspect of our lives and that is giving our power away.
Most little girls are brought up to: keep it together; let it go; don't make waves and be nice to everyone. But the issues we deal with as adult women rely on our inner power and this programming is what contributes to the destruction of this power.

I love the song Firework by Katy Perry. I especially like this phrase:
"You don't have to feel like a wasted space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow"
