Not take dating so seriously
However, guys do this with dating and I don’t know why.
After all, finding a permanent and lasting relationship is tough enough without complicating it even further by taking yourself too seriously.
Keeping in mind that no one is perfect and all of us could use some attitude adjustments from time to time, you might want to think about making some changes if you recognize yourself in two or more of these factors.
It is important to you to point out others’ faults. You interrupt someone who is speaking to make sure your views are heard. You get upset and withdraw from the conversation when someone teases you. If someone politely declines spending time with you, you spend the next two weeks trying to figure out what’s wrong with you instead of believing the reason why he or she declined. For example, if you find it difficult to laugh at yourself, remember the words of the very wise (and funny) Father James Martin who wrote “humor is attractive.” What about the habit of pointing out other people’s faults?
If you do recognize these factors in yourself and the way you communicate with others, a good way to counteract them is to map out some practical steps you can work on each day.
Maybe his excuse will be crappy and you’ll decide he’s not worth it.
