I don’t really know for sure, but my guess would be that if you did a search online for the term “dating advice for women”, you would get a ton of results. The problem is that most of the advice you get wouldn’t be worth too much.
I’m not a psychologist but I am a little older and have had some experiences, some good and some not so good, that I can share with you and hopefully help you avoid making bad mistakes.
I see several of my friends who are miserable because they ignored some common sense dating advice for women. If you aren’t going to pay attention anyway the best advice in the world won’t do you any good, so I hope you pay attention.
Here are some tips you need to keep in mind:
1. If you want to have successful relationships, you need to be capable of having successful relationships. I know it sounds like I’m talking in riddles but what I mean is actually pretty simple: you need to be a secure, confidant women.
If you are overly needy (I know we all have our moments, but it shouldn’t happen all the time) or insecure than you are going to attract a certain type of guy. What type of guy? Well, more than likely not the kind who will make you happy unless you enjoy being treated like crap.
You see, confidant, well adjusted men will not be attracted to needy women. The type of man who will be attracted to needy women is an insecure guy who likes being with needy women so he can control them and push them around.
Get yourself together first.
2. Don’t ignore early warning signs. This is another huge mistake many women make. There are almost always signs of problems early in the relationship, but women are either so desperate (though few would admit it) that they ignore them. They chalk up these disturbing signs to the fact that “no one is perfect”, or “he’s having a bad day”.
You can tell alot about anyone by the way they treat people they come into contact with. If your new guy is rude and impatient when you are out to dinner, do you really believe that he won’t act that way, or worse, when the two of you are alone? If so, why would you think that?
If the guy is mean or rude it’s just a matter of time until he takes it out on you. He may or may not get physical but verbal abuse is no picnic either. Why would you ignore such an obvious warning sign when it’s still early enough to get out unscathed? Run, don’t walk.
Look, you are a smart, funny, decent women (OK, I don’t really know you but I’m guessing it’s true) why would you subject yourself to being in a relationship with someone who isn’t man enough to fully appreciate you and all you have to offer?
Are you really that desperate that you would allow some insecure guy to treat you like garbage? If you are, your first step should be counseling and hold off on the dating for a while.
And that, my friend, is darn good dating advice for women.
