They study the field, armed with their well-crafted pick-up lines, designed to enchant their selected targets.
However, the so-called rules of dating have become so astutely followed, one mistake means the end of what could be a meaningful relationship.
A person could have a great date only to follow up too soon, or maybe, too late, or perhaps, an innocent slip of the tongue ruins his or her chance for a second date.
As a guy who has seen such men in action and heard them tell me of their one-night stand stories, I can’t help but agree that men did, in fact, ruin dating with their hook-up philosophies.
This isn't to say all men are bad, as some are superb gentlemen; it’s just that the bad crowd polluted the dating world.
Here are some reasons why: I remember once being at a friend’s for a guys' night when a woman I was interested in became a topic of discussion.
She was friendly and displayed an outgoing personality, which I found appealing.
I was enticed by the possibility of finding "the one."Ultimately, I saw myself as a dog trying to chase a speeding Ferrari.
I had a few dates that were wonderful experiences with women who truly impressed me and still do.
I have never been one to place a strong belief in the power of first impressions to accurately gauge what kind of person one may turn out to be.
As I’ve learned in the past, looks are deceiving, but in the field of dating, that never turns out to be the case.
Yet, for multiple reasons, most of which are unknown, relationships never developed.
