From so many women I hear phrases such as, “Why can’t I find a good man”, “All men are dogs”, “Why does dating have to be so difficult?”. I’m going to leave the first two quotes alone for now but let’s answer the last one. Dating is a mess because sometimes YOU make it that way. I’m not saying that the other party involved doesn’t play their part in all of this. It’s just that I see so many women constantly set themselves up for failure but they only want to focus on the mistakes/bad intentions of that man. If you truly want to solve the problem then taking that approach isn’t going to help you.

1. Expecting him to chase you
I always hear women say "if a man wants you, nothing can keep him away" this isn't entirely true but I get it. What women who are dating fail to realize is, he doesn't truly know you yet. He knows he is attracted to you and that you have caught his interest. He is willing to explore the possibilities but he has yet to determine if he truly "wants you". So expecting him to jump through hoops isn't helping the process. Making things difficult on purpose to test him is unnecessary. Some good men don't have time for all of that and will quickly drop you from relationship potential. I'm in no way saying that a woman should chase a man, but I am saying that expecting him to run after you while you put little to no effort is typically a setup for failure.
