3 mistakes women make when dating

16 June 2016, 15:41 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - The reason most people end up with poor relationships is because you wanted things to happen when you decided that it should. Maybe because everyone around you had one or your best mate had just found the best thing that could have happened to them. So you are left wondering whether there is something wrong with you especially when you have been single for such a long time.  In that moment you get hard-pressed to settle down like everyone else especially those around you because they look like they have it going for them. But at times, maybe you just were not ready and there is nothing wrong with that.

I have found that the best thing I could at times do for myself is never concentrate too much on them but just focus on me because if I do the reverse you end up making the following mistakes;

You are all over the place

You look desperate. The worst part is when everywhere you go your conversation is about you trying to find someone. Everyone knows it and they are also putting up fliers. Desperation is off putting to anyone and it will eventually make you look like a crazy person: you try control the pace of the relationship and you do not even pause. You are already planning while the other person is still trying to figure out if they even want you.

If you are not comfortable being single and enjoying it, you will not find whatever you are looking for from being with someone else

There is some freedom that comes with being single that escapes a lot of people. When you are singe, you see happy couples. When you are in a relationship, you see happy singles and it is simply because of the above statement. You will keep seeing a greener pasture on the opposite side because you did not appreciate when you were alone. You thought being with someone would be the ultimate stamp for you. It is not. Simply put, love your own company, and love yourself.

You have qualities that the other person should have, but do you have the same

Are you the ideal mate? No one goes in thinking that they want to be with someone horrible, we all go in with expectations. But after thorough reflection of yourself, do you even have the same or complimentary to go with you? Don’ think you will work on yourself when you find the other person. You need to do that as you go along and they will find you on the way.  You will attract what you are so if you are there being desperate, no matter how good they look, you need to worry about what shortcomings they might have.
