I’ve been getting all of your emails so I thought I’d answer one today about dating!  Janette from Columbus, OH asks: “What can I do better to not ruin or run a Man off after the 1st date?” 

GREAT question Janette!  I get this question a lot from Women, so I’ll answer this in a way that will make you smile a little today.  Enjoy and share with someone who needs a smile too! 🙂

Jack’s Top 5 Ways Women RUIN Dates

1. You were BORING – Talking about your family, kids, WORK, or the weather are mood killers! Most Men are stimulated by excitement, action, adventure & things that take us away from the norm NOT make us remember it.

2. TMI – We like to know about you but NOT EVERYTHING about you. Too much info too soon can take the mystery of the chase away.

3. You Whined TOO Much – NO MAN likes to hear a Woman whine about her problems. ESPECIALLY on the 1st few dates! It screams ISSUES!

4. Too Formal – No date should feel like you’re on a job interview. Loosen up and leave the supervisor mentality at the office.

Aaaand 5. Laugh MORE – 68% of Men surveyed said their favorite compliment to hear is “You’re funny” Of course don’t overdo it. We all know Women are good at “Faking it” but save those skills for later! LOL

So if you’re planning on going out anytime soon, remember these little tips and try them; they actually work! And also, remember, we only live once so HAVE FUN! 🙂
