Sometimes I marvel at the fact that we singles even manage to make it to the first date. Some of us get up hung up in the approach, showing interest, and determining compatibility part that comes with dating. I think a lot of times we take it way too seriously, pretty much sucking the fun part out of the whole process.
Keeping it simple is virtually impossible. I know women have a tendency to complicate matters when they shouldn’t be, but I have met and dated men who do the same thing. Is it so hard to play it cool until things develop?
There is nothing wrong with being excited about spotting someone you want to get to know more. However, acting desperately can be a real turn off. Nobody likes it when people come on too strong. How do you handle it when someone is a little over the top in pursuing you? Do you find it flattering, annoying, or are you confused by it?
If someone you are interested in seems to be playing it cool, do you take it as a sing of disinterest and back off altogether? Have you ever met someone who was giving you that oh so lovely “mixed signals” making it difficult to determine what they want?
