Most women have experienced the following scenario: they start seeing a guy, they honestly like him, and then they start obsessing over every little thing and ruin a potentially wonderful love story.
It’s really hard to balance things out when it comes to participating in the dating world. What’s even harder is handling disappointment and trying to analyze what you did wrong in the process. It’s simply exhausting.
Sometimes, it’s really not your fault. Sometimes things simply don’t work out because two people aren’t a good match. Other times, you may be the reason for a missed chance for happiness.
If you’ve had enough of being puzzled over what you’ve done wrong, it’s good to take a few steps back and try to see the whole picture as objectively as possible. Very often, it’s tempting to give up on love because you feel like you’re going to lose your mind overthinking every detail.
It’s a game of back and forth, but honesty stays the number one quality everyone respects. The way you communicate, the little things you do for your man, the ideas about the relationship you have (that might need a reality check) – all of this plays an important role in your love life.
Check out our infographic and try to understand where you might be making mistakes in the dating world.

So much information, Matt! Even though i’m single at the moment I find your videos and articles just another bow to my arrow when I do get into a relationship. Thank you for being so giving with your insight and humor. By the way you and Mark Gungor would make an amazing team with helping both single and married women. Look him up!
I love that you’ve cited the research here! I have to say that I’m curious what an infographic speaking to men would look like (their top mistakes).
It’s hard to be confident when I’m acutely aware of my flaws. I guess I’ll stay single for three years to work on myself like I promised
HELP!!! Matt please talk about ways to be there for our men (or guy you’ve just started seeing) when they’ve had a bad day!
I googled, and there are some articles saying things like give him a kiss, let him vent it out, hugs, cook for him, etc. and then I came across some articles saying that being there for him too much will ruin the relationship. Oh boy, I need translation.
So basically, for example, I can take him out for fun date, but not give up my schedule and things for it???
Ack, I texted him and I can’t tell if I’m making myself too available?
He’s had a bad day today, he wanted to see me, but our schedules conflict, so I suggested we go to his favorite restaurant this weekend.
Can we make up some fake texts of the right way to approach this and wrong way?
I would love to have this topic gone into a little more in depth. What is the difference between being needy and requiring that your needs are met for example? Is it possible that sometimes men call you “uptight” because you aren’t giving them what they want in the moment and if so how can you tell the difference between a situation in which you could benefit from relaxing a little and a situation in which someone else is calling you a name to get what they want out of you? How do you communicate respectfully without becoming “drama”? What are some ways to properly interpret signals so that you are not over analyzing but also not being oblivious? It would be incredibly enlightening if you could shed some deeper light on these topics sot hat we can translate them into more concrete and effective actions. Thank you so much!
I did not know how to reach you so I am posting a comment here.
I like a guy and told him up front about my feelings. We are good friends. I thought he liked me too. But then he mentioned that he wants to focus on his career and not get into any relationship or dating etc (because it is distracting him). at this point. I understand that his career is important for him. and I did tell him that I never forced him into any commitment. Later, I asked him to clarify once again and he mentioned that we should be only friends forever. I don’t want to get in to this now bcz I don’t want to be someone’s distraction. I mean, c’mon who will like to be someone’s distraction ??? I would get into a relationship to motivate myself to be a better person. How can someone we like become a distraction ?? Anyway, I just wanted to talk about this. It is little difficult to digest all this. And yes, I now know what happens to you upon getting friendzoned! :D
how long does it take to moderate a comment ??
