"We all make mistakes." Nowhere is the cliché more apt than when it comes to relationships.
As a dating coach I've been privileged to help other women recognize and break free of self-defeating patterns and habits that have kept them from realizing the relationship of their dreams.
The most common dating mistakes often spring from underlying issues of self-esteem (think too little of yourself, and you'll settle for less-than-ideal situations - think too much of yourself, and you believe bad behavior is absolved by your sheer fabulousness).
More often, dating doozies result from failure to recognize - or simply accept - the different ways men and women approach relationships.
Then there's the lack of faith in the abundance of the universe - the anxious sense of scarcity that propels us to "make things happen," instead of letting them unfold. It's uncanny how the women I coach all tend to commit the same mistakes (five of which I've outlined below).
Moreover, correcting the errors of your ways can be done with a bit of practice.
To avoid repeating the same mistakes over and over again, first you've got to recognize them.
So here goes: authors Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider emphasize this point as the most important.
It may go against conventional dating advice, which encourages women to flirt and even strike up a conversation.
While there are always exceptions, the women I coach who are struggling with boyfriends who won't commit or husbands who ignore them almost invariably made the first contact.
A man may date and even marry a woman who approached him first, but there will likely be consequences later on..he approaches the girl he really wants. Quick Fix: If you talked him first or even asked him out, you can try to restore some of the feminine mystique and you forfeited as the initiator by being a bit more elusive - a little less available, a little more mysterious.
