9 Dating Mistakes That Could End Your Relationship Before It Begins

So after days of flirty texting and dropping subtle hints you’re finally going on a date. Congrats!
But before you start naming your future kids (don’t!) and wondering how his last name will sound with yours, make sure you aren’t making these common mistakes!

1. Be interested in them because of how they look.
We know that looks are important, at least at first. But wanting to be with someone just because they have alpine cheekbones or a thousand followers on Instagram even though they have absolutely nothing in common with you is one big mistake. I mean, when you’re actually on a date, what are you even going to talk about?

2. Pretend to be someone else just so they’ll agree to a date.
I know how tempting it is – to embellish your stories and alter your history to change what tomorrow might bring. I also know how tempting it is to alter yourself to fit their description of perfection. But that facade won’t last long, and in the long run, it’ll leave the both of you disappointed.

3. Make unnecessary requests.
It is only, only acceptable to tell your date what to wear when say, the date’s a surprise and the venue demands it. Telling your date to show up in a leotard just because you like it otherwise is just plain creepy.

4. Study for your date like it’s a Job interview.
Your date, no matter how similar it may seem, is not an interview for a potential partner. So relax and throw away all those articles on dating tips that you’ve been reading, including this one.
Be yourself, just a little neater and a lot nicer.

5. Do something you don’t want to do on a date.
If you find yourself doing something you don’t enjoy just to please the other person, don’t. Don’t go to the amusement park if you’re afraid of heights and are more likely to puke over your date than kiss them at the top of the giant wheel. Which brings me to point number 6.

6. Get sloshed.
Then puke all over their fancy leather shoes.

7. Talk about happily ever after.
Or talk about babies, or how he’d be a great daddy. Nothing will make him run faster than the ‘D’ word, trust me.

8. Stalk them Online.
Liking and sharing everything they do on Facebook isn’t going to help. Neither is accidentally bringing up that embarrassing picture they took 8 years ago with the caption, “Muzik iz ma lyf”

9. Make really grand gestures on First Dates.
Grand romantic gestures are great, really. But to go all out trying to impress on the very first date might actually overwhelm them. Save them for later, you know…like the second date after you’ve named your future babies.

After spending pretty much all of my teen years waiting for a Hogwarts letter that never came, I gave up and settled for being a wizard with words instead. A hopeless romantic, when I’m not penning down short stories, I’m busy imagining my own happily ever after.
