20 Reasons why she's not dating you

07 December 2011, 16:34

So you met a girl and you liked him. He also liked you and you exchanged numbers and arranged to meet.

So you don your favourite outfit, and go meet up and according to you; the date went well. As you part, you say  'see you soon' and weeks later you cannot get that elusive date number two. Not even a reply to your numerous calls and texts.

Well the following are some things you may have said to her that made her reluctant to give you airtime. Guys take note.

So the girl is cute, seems intelligent, is employed and so far, even has a sense of humour. Charming, you think. Until he says the one thing that has you wishing you’d rather stayed at home and kept yourself company.

Our feisty Facebook fans share the things they’ve heard that are guaranteed to have us hiding out in the toilet, planning an escape route…

DO NOT make reference or compare her to your ex.

Chanelle Burke “My ex used to do that.”
Tracey Bevan “This is my ex-wife's favourite restaurant.”
Alecia Braxton-Hamilton “Can my ex join us?”

DO NOT put her in the same sentence as your mother.

Avril du Preez “You remind me of my mother...”

DO NOT insinuate that she’s fat.

Lindelwa Tenza “You were really HUNGRY.”
Chanelle Dwarika “Are you sure you want to order dessert?”
Nicky Dixon “So have you recently had a baby?”

DO NOT think of her as easy and sleezy.

Dejavu' Dangie Recksons “Nice ass!”
Tarryn Matthei  “What's your favourite position?”
Bronwyn May “Are you wearing panties?”
Tebello Falatsi “Are you sexually active?”
Lerato Sekgobela “When last did you have sex?”

DO NOT focus your attention on something else.

Dionne Solomons Jacobs "Can I sit over there - can't see the TV from here" Uh-hmm, no!
Nancy Chama Serenje “Let’s do this quickly - the guys are waiting for me.”

DO NOT be cheap.

Tesh Tasmeena Pillay "So who’s paying?"
Celia Fleming “I forgot to bring my wallet.”

DO NOT be unnecessarily mushy.

Caroline Nape “I love you.”
Yolandi Kommer “Can I hold your hand?” I mean, really...

DO NOT act like a whack-job. Well, at least not yet.
Marjolein Rossouw "I'm presently on a journey of self-discovery."
Simoné-Ann Petersen “I see my psychologist once per week.”

Know of any more?  Feel free to send us your list of DO NOTs.
