Improve your dating technique by understanding common mistakes people make. Game playing: This strategy is usually employed for one of two reasons. When it comes to dating, everyone, on some level, fears rejection.Playing it cool and not getting too involved may make you feel safe, but you risk coming across as aloof or remote, and may turn the other person off.Balance between demonstrating interest and maintaining your composure is best.Another reason people play games is to get something you want that you wouldn’t likely get if you played it straight.In the first 3-6 months of a relationship, you are likely running on oxytocin, which is a chemical found in chocolate.It creates the sense of well-being and euphoria that comes with “falling in love.” This might as well be dubbed the period of temporary insanity, because you are not in command of all your faculties; your brain is hijacked by those lovely chemicals, interfering with your ability to think clearly.You will get further in less time in finding a relationship if you allow yourself to be genuine.
Being tactful and direct is the quickest path to relationship success. Sacrificing too much to get the relationship: If you find that you are doing things you would not otherwise do to get someone’s attention, like bending over backwards and injuring your spine in the process, then you are entering the land of the doormats.Relationship coaching or couples therapy can help you learn how to better manage problematic issues so that they are no longer impinging on the health and happiness of your relationship.
