You’ve tried everything to meet singles. You’ve asked your friends to hook you up, you’ve spread the word that you’re looking, you wear suggestive clothing when you go out, and you let it be known that you’re even OK with casual sex. So why aren’t you getting any dates?!
Well my friend, it might just be because you’re too desperate to date.
There’s a very thin line between putting yourself out there and putting yourself in an embarrassing situation. When you’re looking to date someone, of course you should make it known that you’re seeking, but not by words; by actions.
People get scared away easily by strong suggestions. Telling someone something like, “I haven’t had a boyfriend in 3 years and I’m really ready to get serious with someone again,” is enough to send any sane person running, but innocently flirting and getting to know someone is a great way to show that you’re open to the idea of dating.
Look closely at the dating lives of your friends. There’s a good chance that the people who are always single are the ones who are desperate to find a match, and the ones who always attract relationships are the ones who are care-free about their dating lives.
The more pressure you put on finding a date, the harder it’s going to be for you to get one. Next time you go out, don’t do it with the intention of bringing someone home. Go out and enjoy the time you spend with the people you’re around, and you’re going to be much more attractive to others!
