Whenever relationships develop, it is usually the guys who try to make the first move. But then again, not all of them are successful. Some women just do not feel a guy’s approach to be sincere. It is just one of those common mistakes that men usually make when courting women. Here are the others.
Belief that attraction is based simply in their looks
A lot of men believe that women are greatly attracted to handsome or good looking men. They try to focus more on keeping up appearances so that they can attract the women. But this is only partly true. Women also look for other traits besides a man’s physical features. Men tend to believe this because, it is the way attraction works on them. They automatically assume that it is the same with women.
But as many people know now, a woman’s mind works differently from that of a man. That is the reason why even couples say that they do not fully understand their partners even after years and years into the relationship. It works the same with how both men and women perceive attraction. For women, it is not based solely in looks.
Making a move at the wrong time
Another common mistake that many men commit when approaching women is not knowing the right time to make a move. Many men struggle the right way to approach women. They tend to still base their action on how they feel at the moment, not the other way around. They get rejected simply because they do not try to see it from the woman’s perspective before making a move. It results in rejection and embarrassment most of the time.
Bragging to impress
Some men resort to bragging as a way to try to impress women. Many guys think that trying to brag about their money, accomplishments and physical attributes will surely make women swoon. But that is the mistake right there. Women are actually turned off by men who like to brag. Women think of it as a sign of insecurity. For them, men need to brag because there are some things that they like to hide. They see men trying to highlight something else through bragging in order to take the focus away on something they are either not good at or do not have. To make the right move, men should even stop trying to impress women and just focus on trying to know and understand them better. That approach will have a better impression on women.
