Every once in awhile you go on what you think is a great date and find out a couple days later that she hated it. You don’t know why, you don’t know where, and you might not ever know. Sometimes it’s just a mystery. However, if you find that a lot of your dates are ending abruptly and you’re not getting many second dates, you could be pulling these common issues that women hate.
When You Order Way Less or Way More than She Does
Women want the bill to be about even at a restaurant. She wants to spend a little bit less than you, because that makes her feel dainty and ladylike. However, she really does want it to only be a little less. When the bill matches up she can feel like an equal in the relationship and situation. If you order way more than she does, you’ll look like a spend thrift glutton. If you order far less than she does, she’s going to feel like you’re judging her just for eating a meal.
When Your Car Autoplays the Radio
There’s nothing a woman hates more than getting into a car and suddenly having the conversation drowned out by a blast from the radio. Make sure that you turn the radio off before you shut down the engine. If she hates your radio stations, things will go even worse. If at all possible, leave the music in the car off and focus on talking as you go through the date. You’ll stop that sudden burst of irritation that’s ruining your dates.
When You Fidget in the Theater
The ladies can’t stand a man who can’t pay attention to the play or movie that they agreed to see. It doesn’t matter if she picked the movie and you hated it. Fidget during the middle and you’re asking for her to resent you. It’s a matter of respect, and even though the drivel she’s passing off as a film might not deserve respect, you have to give it. That’s the kind of thing that women are sticklers about.
When You Keep Topping Her Stories
No one likes a story topper. This would be true even if she wasn’t dating you, but if you pull this while you’re on a date you’re in for a special level of hatred. If her story reminds you of another (better) story starring you, just keep that to yourself. You don’t want to drive her away. When you’re constantly topping her stories, you’re saying, “You’re not actually interesting.” Women like to feel special, and you’ll get nowhere when you make them feel like their stories are utterly forgettable.
When You Drink Too Much
You might get annoyed when your date drinks a bit too much-if you think it will ruin your chances of getting anywhere with her that night, anyway. However, for women, a man drinking too much on a date is huge turn off. Even if you’re only tipsy, she’s going to be uncomfortable unless she’s even drunker than you are. You could be at relatively the same level of intoxication, and she’ll be unhappy with you letting yourself get that way.
