The Top 10 Mistakes Women Make On A Date
By Carly Spindel

No one is perfect. If we were all flawless, dating wouldn’t be as fun. I know I make a million mistakes on dates and I share them with my girlfriends so we can all laugh about them afterwards. Half the fun of dating is the stories you get to tell your friends.

1. Stay Away From Your Phone
The biggest mistake women make on a date is using their cell phones. When you’re on a date, your cell phone should stay in your bag. A guy doesn't want to sit across from you if you’re on your phone the entire time. He wants your full attention.
2. No One Cares About Your Ex
Sometimes women talk about their ex-boyfriends too much. You’re in the present, so focus on it. Your date wants to learn about you, he doesn’t care about your ex-boyfriends. If you want a future with someone, avoid bringing up your previous relationships.
3. Don’t Eat Like A Bird
When you go on a date, don’t order a salad. Men like women who enjoy eating. An appetite is sexy. When you order a salad on a date, you send out the wrong signal. Salads are like beans. They’re okay to eat when you’re alone or with a friend, but not on a date.
4. Keep The Drinks To A Minimum
Some women think it’s okay to drink alcohol like it’s water. Men don’t like alcoholics. It’s okay to have a few cocktails or even share a bottle of wine, but you don’t want to drink so much that your date thinks you’re a drunk.
5. Confidence is Cool
Women sometimes act insecure on a date. Yes, we all get nervous at times. We are human. But men don’t need to see that. It’s important to always be confident. Nothing turns a man off like an insecure woman. Even if you are nervous, fake it. Remember that confidence is a sexy quality.
6. No One Likes A Pain In The Ass
Being difficult and demanding on a date is not an aphrodisiac. When you tell the waiter to hold the sauce or put something on the side, you’re allowing your date to think that you’re annoying. You want to turn a man on, not scare him away.
7. Show A Little Skin – But Not Too Much
On a date, many women often forget to dress sexy. When you meet your man, you should look and feel like a celebrity. Business casual is not hot. When your date looks at you, you want him to be in awe.
8. Be Nice
Nothing makes a man want to run away like a rude and impolite woman. Think of your manners like your wallet. When you leave your home you wouldn’t walk out without your wallet. So, don’t go anywhere without your manners.
9. Gaze Into His Eyes
Many people don’t make eye contact. Some women stare at a man’s forehead, his watch, or his even his hair. Don’t make that mistake! You don’t want him to think you’re daydreaming or worrying about what you have to do at work the next day. Look right into his eyes so he knows you mean business.
10. Don’t Be Too Aggressive
Last but not least, some women like to make the first move. Once you’re in a relationship it’s important to be aggressive, but not when you’re first dating. Let him be the man. If he likes you, I promise he’ll kiss you.
