We whinge that we can’t find the right man, or never get a second date, but the usual reason is we’re not looking hard enough in the first place.Whether we’re into bears, jocks or geeks, sometimes our narrow search criteria holds us back.Here are six secrets men need to know about women to help them stop that "thing" in their head from destroying their dating life: Women have baggage, too, especially the attractive ones. But I also know it's a tough one for men to swallow.
Be positive Many guys are very clear in their dating profiles – almost rudely so – about what they don’t want or like.
Not only is this far too prescriptive, you also run the risk of coming across as overly negative.
But after that, something interesting happens: A man's face shifts according to how he makes a woman feel.
A hot man can become hideous, and an average-looking man can become the sexiest guy in the room.
If you look at the couples around you, you find that most men are taller than their women.
This isn’t just a coincidence, nor it is it as simple as taller is better, although the research does show some preference for taller men.
What’s interesting is how women use height in gauging their attraction for men.
It turns out that height, like many other factors, depends on the individual – their own physical characteristics and what they’re looking for in a mate. Let’s first start with the tendency for women to prefer taller men since this idea is a common expectation.
One of the most difficult things for a fat dude to hear, especially when dating, is that they have a great personality but no other redeeming physical characteristics. When you remind us how "unhealthy" we are, all you're doing is reducing us to our weight and that doesn't feel good. If I haven't suggested I might like to go for a 10-mile hike, telling me how much I'd enjoy it every time I see you is a mistake (and also makes me thing you want to get me alone so you can murder me in the wilderness).7.
I appreciate that, especially if it's just a nice compliment that doesn't come with a "but" after. If I'm all "let's go running," you should absolutely come if you want to.
While the common dating ‘rules’ – not that I believe in rules – can apply to anybody, there are perhaps a few things we, as gay guys, need to pay a little more attention to.
