Dating Mistake #1: Jumping in too soon: If your first dinner and a movie turns into a weekend that includes you or your date renting a U-Haul, that spells trouble. Intimacy takes time and should.

Dating Mistake #2: Thinking all the good ones are taken: If you set yourself up for failure, then you will surely be successful at failing.

Dating Mistake #3: Dumping your baggage in the Other person’s lap. Telling your whole life story, talking about your ex.’s puts a huge damper on any date. Leo Buscaglia said: “Don’t smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.”

Dating Mistake #4: You have no concrete plan for dating: Assuming that you don’t know what you want, but you’ll know it when you see it is a huge mistake that dating people make. If you choose blindly, you will likely be disappointed with the results.

Dating Mistake #5: Assuming that the first person you date is “the one” for you because you like them or they like you. This is a huge dating disaster. If you only know how the person looks and sounds for a short time, it’s easy to become intoxicated, especially if you are attracted to them.

Dating Strategy #1: Take your time in getting to know someone. You have all the time in the world to decide what you need and who you want to spend your life with.

Dating Strategy #2: Know that you would be successful. Realize there are millions of single people out there. You may have to go on social dates with several or many different people before you find one that you really enjoy. It sure beats settling.

Dating Strategy #3: Choose an action date to get to know each other. Try an activity, such as walking around an art fair or shooting some pool. Keep the conversation light and redirect the other person to a more fun topic if things get too “deep” too soon.

Dating Strategy #4: Create a dating plan. Write down who you are, what you want, and how you will go about attaining your goals. If you need some help in this area, you can always hire a counselor or coach. I have helped dozens of singles in my practice to write out their plan over the years. They have found it to be very helpful and successful.

Dating Strategy #5: Be patient with yourself and others. You can give someone a second chance, but if things are not going well move on. Allow yourself to go on various dates with various people, even if you like the person.
