Your job is to pay attention to that red flag and not pursue them.Rule #3: Actions Speak Louder Than Words During the course of your dating life you will most likely find yourself on a date with someone whose actions speak much louder than their words. Until then, it will just be the same guy with a different name.3. If you can work on your assertiveness and confidence, you will find a relationship with someone who respects you. A man who genuinely wants to spend time getting to know you will put in the effort.6. OK, this isn't a concrete rule, but the point is that you should not accept a date on Wednesday or Thursday for that weekend. To get the most out of your dating life, it’s important to understand that actions speak louder than words.When someone’s actions are contrary to their words, this is not only a red flag, it’s gut-check time.If a potential date’s actions or words set off an internal alarm system, you owe it to yourself to pay attention and act accordingly. For example, if you’ve met someone online and they seem interesting, then you talk to them on the phone and they sound completely different (in a negative way), you may decide not to meet them in person.A positive example would be if you were on a date with someone and they seemed nervous but well intentioned, your gut might tell you to give them a second chance.
As a successful single, you owe it to yourself and the individuals you date not to play games. Do what you say you’re going to do, and be honest when the other person asks if you’d like to go out again.
Rule #5: Know When to Say “Game Over” Just as you should not play dating games, you will want to avoid getting played.
Like it or not, there are plenty of players on the dating scene.
An example of a red flag would be if you found yourself on a date with someone who could not stop talking about their ex.
They may be a fantastic person, and eventually make a great partner, but right now they’re not ready.
Especially when we feel insecure, we tell people way too much about us. The feminists are going to hate me on this one, but I think “I am woman, hear me roar” has done us a disservice in the dating department. If you go to his house on the first date instead of him coming to pick you up, I have two words for you: booty call. He is not a girlfriend with whom you should spend hours on the phone. You can bet he isn’t sitting by the phone waiting for you to call. We get far too emotionally attached when sex is in a relationship, but men don’t view this the same way. They don’t even stop to consider whether or not they even like the guy. Show up, have fun and if it works out, great, if not, on to the next one.
