Just at the start of something beautiful, before it fully blossoms into something colourful, you get ahead of yourself and begin to show behaviours that might freak the potential boyfriend away, or set yourself up for disappointment along the way.
Here are five of the things women do that might send guys away even before the relationship starts.
1. Moving too fast
This is a classic mistake women make. When a man is interested and you are, too, there is a temptation to jump right into it and start treating him like you have known each other forever.
While this works for some guys, for others, it might be too much. So, slow down and move at a pace that works for both of you.
2. Assuming the best of a guy
Assuming a guy is perfect will not send him running away, but you’ll most likely be setting yourself up for disappointment if you place him on an insanely-high pedestal after only few dates.
Keep calm, and let a considerable amount of time pass before you pass a judgement on his level of perfection.
3. Being possessive
Being too clingy is often a turn-off.
Just because you’re dating and getting ever closer to an official relationship doesn’t mean a man is obligated to spend all his time with you.
Expecting too much of his time at an early stage might scare him away.
Some men appreciate women who have stuff going for them, too. Asking for too much time might send a signal to him that you are either always idle or too clingy.
4. Avoiding serious conversations
As happy as you might be in the company of a new guy, don’t pass up the opportunity to discuss some important things with him.
“What do you want?” “ Where do you think this is leading?” These are some questions you should never be scared to ask.
Not asking will not send him running, of course, but it is better know what you are getting into than crying foul later. Don’t play yourself.
5. Too much talk about your Ex
So you don’t chase him away with an impression that you haven’t truly gotten over your former lover.
