10 dating mistakes
If you only want to make out with me once and then go away that's fine, don't bother asking for my number because you think I need that. You know how guys put their big heavy arms on you and then you can't move and then they fall asleep and their solar-like body heat penetrates you to your bones leaving you drenched with sweat? I'm in the market for a pre-Viagra age range here, thanks.14. If you leave a date and you can't recite three facts about me, you failed.15.
Cuddle you oppressively for extended periods of time. If you get scared by that idea then tell me so I can spare my family and friends (and myself! Call you "babe" or "sweetheart" when you've known each other for 20 minutes. This is what 50-year-old men who want to date 19-year-old women do. I have a brain and eyes I use to read the same shit you do, and I've been on my own for long enough to know how to live in the world.16. Let me eat my dainty calamari and black rice and we can get you a pizza afterward!
I'll be ignored, say almost nothing the entire time, and pass on the nachos, not because I'm worried about my weight, but because I'm not sharing finger food with five man boys who have all visited the bathroom in this here dive bar.11. The family/friend introductions are a sign that shit is getting serious. When we go out for tapas I don't want to feel like I'm fighting for my meal. Call women "crazy." You know when you're talking to a guy about someone he was dating and he says, "Oh, she got Cr Az Y." Like, no, she didnt get crazy, you did something to make her crazy!
" Because his nighttime plans didn't work out and he's hoping that YOU will bone him now. Invite you to watch football with their friends as some sort of alleged date. Go so far as to meet your family and friends — or introduce you to his family and friends — and then ghost. Then you have to finish planning the date by getting in touch with him when the whole point of being asked out is not having to do that shit.29.
Count to 10 in your head before speaking again and give your date a chance to jump in -- 99 percent of the time, a man will continue talking if you don't interrupt him.

Tell you that you're The One and then do the slow fade. The best cuddling position is him on his back and your head on his chest.
Going overboard telling him why you don't need a man doesn't give him a whole lot of room to imagine being in your life.
Many women do this to appear laid-back and not needy -- but it backfires.

Ask you on a date and then the day rolls around on which said date is supposed to happen, but he never contacts you to confirm anything.
In two weeks you notice he found his next The One in a nightclub and is posting photos of them flirting on Instagram. Tell you to wear your hair down when it's in a ponytail. Never comment on a girl's appearance unless you're telling her she looks hot AF.
We don't tell you to stop wearing so much pomade that I can't touch your head without needing a baby wipe for my hand before I do literally anything else.3.
