But the people dishing it out often have no idea what they’re talking about! The collateral damage of these poor recommendations can only be hypothesized. Here are 15 examples of the absolute worst dating advice for men out there. seeking useful tips to improve your dating life, it’s quite obvious that what you are currently doing is not working.
Horrible advice after more horrible advice is lent onto unsuspecting and vulnerable men each and every day.
I’ve known guys who were adamant about not paying for a drink or a meal or a ticket, and they were looked at by the women they took out as petty.
It’s one thing if a woman is obviously trying to have you buy everything or get her things; it’s another thing entirely to offer to get the first round of drinks on a first date.
Now, don’t get me wrong, nice guys can often finish first with women (as my friend Kevin Alexander will tell you) but trying to be too nice, or trying to be someone you’re not, never works!
Guys who try to play into the nice-guy role are guys who just don’t have the confidence to be true to who they really are. They don’t have to “try” to be nice, they just are.
Guys who read too much pick-up artist stuff tend to believe this fallacy.
If you have to wait until the very end of the date to lock lips with your woman, you’ve done something wrong.
You basically sit through two hours of torture watching some crappy movie about god-knows-what, and when it finally ends and the lights turn on, you’ve virtually spent two boring and awkward-filled hours with a complete stranger! And oh yeah, take all of this advice about not going to the movies, and times it by 10 when it comes to dinner dates! Unless you are older than 50, take her someplace fun like Dave and Buster’s, karaoking, mini-golfing, a fair, a park, dancing, an event, even go kart racing.
All of these ideas beat the hell out of doing nothing but watching a movie or watching each other eat!
A lot of people think you have to wait a certain amount of dates to have sex with someone.
Typically I hear things like “Wait 3 dates before getting sexual.” Or sometimes I hear 5 dates, or 1 month, or even a few months, or yes, even marriage!
