Nearly everyone has a cell phone these days and many relationships begin to evolve through the use of text messages. Sadly, the average guy out there doesn't know how to woo a woman over text messaging and ends up making several key errors that kills attraction. Here are 5 mistakes to avoid when you’re texting a girl.
1. Sending dirty texts too early
Getting too sexual over text too early will scare her off and hurt your chances when it comes to setting up a date because you run the risk of her thinking that you are only after one thing: sex.
2. Sending too many texts before getting a reply
3. Sending texts that have no value
This is probably the biggest mistake guys make when they text women. Texts like "How's it going" or "What's up" do not make you stand out from all the other guys that are trying to text the same girl you are talking to. They do nothing more than put her on the spot to keep the interaction going and annoy her.
4. Texting first date plans
Never EVER set up a first date via text. Anytime you ask a girl to go out, you want to do it on the phone or in person. A girl deserves to hear your voice when you ask her out and she wants a guy who is willing to risk calling her, not a guy who hides behind a text message.
5. Texting long conversations
Text conversations are NOT the same as the actual conversations. When you insist on pointless chit chat just to keep the texts going, you can actually kill attraction and find yourself placed in the text version of the FRIEND ZONE. Instead, say more with less. Whenever you’re planning to text a girl, keep everything plain and simple. Start with the good stuff and keep it short and sweet.
While it’s easy to say all the right things in the bedroom, there are also some utterances that will bring the action to a serious halt make a woman put her pants back on--fast. Whether it’s a first-time hookup or long-term relationship, here are just 8 things to never, ever, ever say to a woman in bed.
1. “Who’s your daddy?”
When a woman is getting it on with you, it's a total turnoff to hear a creepy cliché that instantly makes her think of her dear old dad.
2. Another woman’s name
Yes, she knows you have had intimate moments with other women, but every woman wants to think she is the only one. If you make this huge mistake, be extremely apologetic and be prepared to do whatever it takes to prove to her that she's the most beautiful, intelligent and sexiest woman you have ever met.
3. “Shh! Can you be quiet?”
Do you really want her to quiet down after she's turned up the volume to let you know how good it feels or that you’re just totally blowing her mind?
4. “My ex used to love it when I...”
Talking about your prior sexual encounters is a deal breaker for a lot of of women. She doesn’t need to hear about it, and if you bring it up, she’ll feel threatened and jealous.
5. “We’d better hurry, I have to be out of here by 9:00.”
Telling a woman that you’re in a rush and that you don’t have much time to work with is a major mood-killer. Furthermore, making a such a flippant comment followed by a mad scramble for your boxer shorts is sure to freak women out.
6. “Well, that was fun.”
When a woman sleeps with you for the first time, she can’t help but wonder if she's just another notch on your bedpost. Making deflating comments such as, "thank you," or "that was fun" means that you just had a sexual transaction (a hookup) and not an emotional connection.
7. “You're almost as good as my last girlfriend.”
Every woman wants to think she is great in bed. Making a statement like this will blow her mind out of control and bring up certain questions, like, “Do you think about her while you are having sex with me?” and “Do you wish you were with her?”
8. “Do you smell something funny?”
All girls have a distinct odor, and unless she has some sort of infection the smell is probably not a 'bad' smell. Women tend to be very self-conscious about their 'smell' and the only thing you will accomplish by telling her that she stinks is destroy her self esteem.

While some dating mistakes are obvious, others can be trickier to recognize. In fact, you may not even know you’re making them. So, if you feel as if you are somehow going off track with your relationships, but aren't really sure how, check to see if you are making any of these 5 dating mistakes:
1. Talking about your ex on your dates
Talking about your ex with your dates is never a good move. Women view men that can't stop talking about their ex non-stop as having unresolved frustrations and pent-up bitterness. You don’t need to go into details about each and every past relationship you’ve ever had or how you were wronged during any date. She also doesn’t need to know exact names, dates or all the gross details about you and your ex's sex life.
2. Sharing too much information
Don't give out your resume on the first date. Some of your past is straightforward and can be discussed right then and there; however, the first date is not show and tell time.
3. Having a narrow focus
Always dating the same type of women and expecting different results is a recipe for disaster. Branch out of your dating comfort zone and give a chance to those women you haven’t previously considered (think age, looks, profession, interests). Remember that dating only women that you think of as your type has gotten you exactly where you are right now--single.
4. Expecting too much too soon
Nothing turns a woman off and sends her running away faster than a guy who starts moving too fast and expects instant attraction, love and devotion, or even instant great sex after only one or two dates.
5. Giving up power
Lots of guys try to get women to like them by doing whatever the woman wants; becoming too considerate, too helpful and too kind in an effort to seemingly align their lives with a woman’s wishes. Don't be one of them. Women don't respect pushovers and they don't feel attraction for "nice" guys who always kiss up to them.
When it comes to choosing a potential mate, no one should ever settle for mediocrity, yet so often the women we date either hold us back, bring us down, or simply hurt us in one way or another down the road, in every sense of the word. That being said, here are 8 signs that your current love interest isn't worth dating.
1. She has a lack of intelligence
While many men have been conditioned to have an affinity for less intelligent women who are less challenging and opinionated, there are more pitfalls than you may think when dealing with a woman you can't have an intellectual conversation with.
2. She's all about drama and mind games
There’s a certain kind of woman who believes that acting out, extreme selfishness, entitlement, throwing tantrums, pathological jealousy and having narcissistic rages are normal and acceptable female behavior. They’re not. Do yourself a favor and drop her.
3. She can't hold down a job
A woman that can't hold down a job or always seems to have problems at work is usually lazy and just looking for a sugar daddy to meet all of her needs.
4. She's dishonest
Lying is a big red flag. We're not saying you should definitely call it quits if she has lied to you, but you should take this very seriously, especially if she has lied about her background, age, her health situation, etc..
5. She has drug and alcohol problems
You cannot have a healthy relationship with a woman who has obvious drug and alcohol problems. Do you really want someone who is a drunk or uses drugs to be the mother of your children? Think about it.
6. She's self-centered
If she spends more time talking about herself than getting to know you and the only feelings worth considering are hers, cut ties with her as soon as possible.
7. You have nothing in common with her
You don’t need to have everything in common with her, but you do need something that connects the two of you. If you guys can’t seem to come together on anything, you need to part ways with her.
8. She's flaky
The flaky girl isn’t worth your time either. One day she loves you. The next day she's not sure. The third day she wants to have your children. The fourth day she needs some space. Give her as much space as she needs, and never come back.

Have you ever made plans with a woman and then 30 minutes before your date, she sends you a text saying “I totally forgot I have plans to meet my brother and can’t make it” or “I've been called in to work at the last minute. Maybe some other time?” This woman did not just "remember" she had plans. She used a lame excuse to get out of a meeting with you. Face it, you just got flaked on!
Although flaking is a fact of life for any guy who is putting himself out there in the dating world, women don't realize the frustration, annoyance and hurt men experience when they have a woman flake on them. So why do women agree to go out on a date, then never show up? Why do women give you their phone number, then never pick up when you call? Here are five main reasons why women flake on dates.
1. Someone or something else better came along
Women get hit on all the time and basically have an unlimited number of options, and there’s always the chance that she met another guy she was more attracted to. Or maybe it’s not even a guy, but something came up that's more appealing than going on a date with someone she doesn’t really know.
2. She's already involved with someone
Sometimes women will flake because they’re already in a relationship. Maybe she got caught up in the moment and cheating seemed like a good idea at the time, but after thinking about it, she started having second thoughts.
3. She didn't feel enough attraction to you
Sometimes a woman still won’t come out to meet you because she was never all that interested in you and therefore has no incentive to see you again.
4. She thinks you're creepy
For a woman, it may be a safety concern. If she feels an unexplainable feeling of discomfort and awkwardness toward you, she'll simply keep away from you altogether.
5. She was just a tease
Some women intentionally go out and give guys their numbers because they WANT guys they never plan to sleep with chasing them around. Some of the reasons these manipulative women engage in this ‘teasing‘ behavior is because it gives them wanted attention, an ego boost by impressing other women and assurance that they could in fact have certain men if they wanted.
At some point in every man's life, there comes a time when it’s time to find a good woman and settle down with her. It can often be hard to know if a girl is "right" for you, so here’s a list of 5 things to look for in a girl that could mean she’s the one to hang on to.
1. She's trustworthy
You don't have to think twice about opening up about personal matters and telling her intimate details about your life. She does what she says she's going to do, doesn't flake out, and she's proven that she will always be there for you through good and bad times, no matter what.
2. She makes you feel special
She makes you feel special and cared for by doing thoughtful, little things like holding your hand when you are out in public, telling you she loves you, hugging you, and listening to you, especially when you need her support. She also does special things for you like leaving you sweet love notes when you least expect it and taking you for impromptu dates to places you enjoy.
3. She makes you a better man
She knows you inside out and helps you bring out the best version of yourself. She's a great girlfriend who motivates you to achieve your dreams, talks about your potential, and inspires you to become the best man you can ever be.
4. You have great chemistry together
She is on your mind at all times and you can stare at one another and not say anything for hours. The two of you can laugh together and you share basic interests. You find yourself talking about her a lot and you feel alive and yet content when she is with you.
5. She loves you for who you are
Although there may be things about you that irritates her in everyday life, she loves you, plain and simple and doesn't want to change the essence of who you are. You can talk with her and feel like she isn’t judging you and you never have to try to impress her because you’ve already done that by just being you.

Make no mistake about it, gentlemen; all women lie in certain situations and your girlfriend is no exception. Sometimes she's only telling half-truths to keep the peace. Sometimes her motives are to protect her own feelings or to cover her tracks. Whatever the case, certain lies occur much more frequently than others. Here are five lies women commonly tell men.
1. "It doesn't matter how much you make."
It does matter how much you make. People do have to make a living, and they need to have some sort of means of support. Women love the feeling of being taken care of, and they want a guy who is financially stable and independent.
2. "I'm not mad at you."
This lie is one of the most frequently used in relationships, and even if she pretends that she doesn't care, her eye rolling and passive-aggressive behavior are dead giveaways that she's angry with you. A woman expects you to magically predict when she doesn’t like something you've done, even if she’s hiding it. So, unless you’re a mind reader, you’ll have to listen to your woman and get her to actually talk about what’s bothering her.
3. "I wouldn't change anything about you."
Although she puts up with you day in and day out, do you really think there is nothing about you that she wouldn't change? Soon enough the truth will come out and she'll be re-sketching better versions of you.
4. “I’ve slept with X number of guys.”
The reason a woman will omit a few escapades from her history is because she is ever fearful of being seen as “easy.” She wants you to make her feel confident that your opinion of her doesn’t lie with her sexual history—and that no matter how many guys she has been with in the past, she's still pure in your eyes.
5. "I love sports too."
Granted, some women do actually enjoy sports, but more than likely, she's making a desperate attempt to gain your attention and connect on with you on a “guy level. Chances are if you ask her any details about stats or players, she'll come up short.
Figuring out that your girlfriend isn’t the one sounds like it should be a no-brainer, but plenty of guys get it wrong all the time. When you're in love, oftentimes it’s difficult to recognize the underlying signs that you're dealing with a toxic person. Next time around, if you aren’t sure if you should listen to that nagging feeling inside of you, maybe this list of red flags to look for in women will come in handy.
1. She doesn't get along with others
If she doesn't have many friends and is constantly fighting with family and other people, it might be a sign that your relationship won't last long.
2. She has poor hygiene
As a man seeking out the right woman, you don't have the time or the psychology degree to figure out why she lets her finger nails get and stay dirty, avoids shaving anywhere, displays unkempt hair, has bad breath and foul odor from her intimate areas. Think about it: if she neglects herself during the dating phase--the phase when you're trying to impress at all costs--imagine how bad it will get if you settle down with her.
3. She 's emotionally unstable
This type of woman has the emotional age of a young child and her emotions ricochet from wild, joyous passion to utmost sorrow. If she does things that are completely crazy, lacking rational thought and she takes actions with no thought about consequences, it's time to cut ties as soon as possible.
4. You catch her in lies
Lying is a big red flag. If your girlfriend lies about her whereabouts, background, age, health situation, the identity of the mysterious caller on her cell phone and is always receiving texts from other guys, consider the prospect that she is playing you big time.
5. She has "Daddy Issues"
This is often a sad result of a woman's poor relationship with her father and modern-day divorce statistics. These women grow up expecting the worst from men and blow up over minor screw-ups because your mistake reminds her of her father’s poor parenting. They also crave attention and enjoy the rush of developing sexual tension from any and every male figure and have tons of emotional baggage.
6. She loves to party (without you)
This type of woman can’t figure out why you would be upset at the idea of waiting up for her while she is out partying all night with women at bars, drinking herself into a stupor. A woman like this maybe carefree and wild at first; however, once you take a closer look, you'll realize that her entire life is a party and most nights will end with her puking in your car.
7. She has no goals or ambition
When a woman doesn't have her own direction in life, it's more likely that she will be over-dependent on the relationship to keep her afloat. Once you realize that she has no goals whatsoever, no income and cannot or will not hold a job, it's time for you to run for the hills.
8. She's extremely jealous and obsessive
If she feels threatened when you discuss your previous relationships, gets upset every time you try to be cordial with another female, and refuses to accept that you have female friends, get away from her and don't look back.
9. She is overly flirtatious with other men
It is perfectly normal for your girlfriend to like the way other guys look; however, if she is ogling every man that passes by, constantly touches other guys arms or laughs suggestively, something is wrong, and it’s not you.
10. She lacks intelligence
Looks can take you a long way and she might look amazing in everything that she wears, but once a conversation gets going and you realize she's intellectually challenged, you've got serious problems, my friend.

Women are more approachable and less suspicious when they meet guys through the course of a regular day and in an atmosphere when they feel comfortable and safe. So if you're currently frustrated by the lack of available women in your life, here are 5 positive habits you can learn that will allow you to naturally fit in and get noticed by women.
1. Go places where women hang out
One of the best ways to meet women is to position yourself to be noticed and let them come to you. You have to go to places where women hang out and return to on a regular basis, i.e., health clubs, libraries, yoga classes, cooking classes, special interest groups, etc.. These are places where conversations are easily started and you can casually interact with women and let them get to know you.
2. Maintain a good appearance
Sure, women like men to be men, but they don’t want you to be a caveman. Most good looking women take notice to and find themselves attracted to a man who takes pride in his appearance and takes care of his body. Proper grooming shouldn't be something you only bother with when you're going out; it should be an indispensable part of your routine.
3. Know how to introduce yourself
Here's an area where a lot of men blow it, that's why it's a habit you should start working on.The trick to making the first move and introducing yourself to women is to always exhibit confidence, a good sense of humor and show her that you are self-assured but not pushy. Keep the initial conversation light and breezy and establish a rapport with the woman you're talking to. Refrain from just talking about yourself and concentrate on being a good listener.
4. Offer help and be chivalrous
Chivalry is about respecting women. When you go out to various places, doing things like holding the door for a woman with an armload of groceries or giving up your seat on the bus to an lady shows women that you possess qualities such as courage, honor, and loyalty and that you are decent guy who is worthy of attention. We're not trying to suggest that respecting your elders or opening doors should be done just to meet women, but consider that a beautiful woman could be watching you every time you're rude or curse someone in public or lose your temper.
A man with a smile on his face is more approachable than a man with a frown. Your smile tells women that you're a friendly person who is open, friendly and relaxed on the inside. The act of smiling triggers good feelings in women and can be your best weapon to let them open up to you.
A woman will only have true passion for a man when she thinks she is capable of losing him. On the other hand, once she thinks that you are easily attainable, your value drops big time and that same passion will slowly disappear.
In the dating game, a woman will always go crazy for that man for whom she had to work hard to get. In order for a woman to feel naturally attracted to you and perceive your value, you have to start working on ways to raise that rating of yours to a new level and make her realize that you are worth more then she may think. In order to get your value higher, focus on the following four points:
1. Make yourself scarce
If you're the type of guy who is an open book, hangs around all the time or doesn’t wait long enough to call a woman back, there’s no motivation to make her come after you. For a woman to value your presence, you have to make her put some work into hanging out with you.
Decline or ignore any first advances or invitations you receive from a woman and make yourself appear busy and in demand. Tell her something like, “Oh, you want to hang out on Saturday night? Geez, I don't know. I have this other thing going on, and I don’t know if I can get out of it.” By being a challenge to women, you’ll leave them wanting more and you will be perceived as scarce and hence, more valuable.
2. Stand up for yourself
Men that do not stand up for themselves lower their value because women perceive them as desperate, needy and eager to please. To increase your value, let a woman know politely that you are upset if she does things that anger you. Furthermore, let her know that you have strong morals that you stand by and if they are not followed, you will not hesitate to end a relationship and kindly escort her out of your life without hesitation.
3. Be intriguing
Women want men who can offer them intellectual stimulation. Being intriguing is a key element in attracting women because it gets them thinking about you when you’re not there and gets them frustrated--in a good way! And as they try to figure you out, they’re investing more and more time thinking about who you are, what you do, what you're like, etc... The more and more intrigued a woman becomes, the more she'll feel like you are a riddle she HAS to solve.
4. Increase your social proof
Social proof plays a crucial role in getting women to look your way and is a strong force that can increase your value in just about any dating situation. When you go out to various places, engage in small conversations with friends and acquaintances and don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to people you don’t know.
By conveying a message that you are a cool and interesting guy who has a lot going on in his life and is worthy of attention, a woman will begin to wonder “who is this guy and why does he seem so popular with people?” She will then become so curious she’ll think you could be someone really interesting, hence someone she should meet.
One of the easiest ways to win a woman over is by making her smile through thoughtfully spoken words and doing something intentional to show her a little bit of appreciation and love. So, if your relationship is slipping into a funk, or you just want to make it more fun, here are 10 of the best ways to put a smile on your girlfriend's face.
1. Being chivalrous
Be a gentleman; hold doors open for her, be polite and be helpful. Ask her if she's cold when it's cold out and have a jacket or a sweater handy so you can give it to her.
2. Remembering important dates
Remembering birthdays, anniversaries and other milestones is a big deal with women. These important dates are also opportunities to show her how special she is to you.
3. Leave her romantic notes
Slip some romantic notes into your girlfriend’s handbag. She is sure to smile at the words when she reads it later.
4. Tell her how beautiful she looks
Don’t wait for a special occasion to say the words and it will make her day.
5. Introduce her to people that matter to you
Show her that you're proud to be with her by introducing her to people that are important to you when you're out.
6. Appreciate her attempts to look good for you
Make sure you pay attention to details such as hair, nails and new looks that she might try out. If your girlfriend has taken pains to dress up for an evening out, be sure to notice it and tell her she looks amazing. The compliment will surely bring a smile on her lips.
7. Send her flirtatious text messages
Being playful, sexual, and engaging her imagination with text messages will bring a few light moments on a busy working day and surely make her smile.
8. Send her flowers at work
Women LOVE getting flowers, especially at work, and receiving a lovely bouquet from you for no reason at all is certain to bring a smile on your girlfriend’s lips. Having flowers delivered to your wife’s workplace will make the women around her jealous, and what’s more she will be secretly thrilled to get their envious glances.
9. Encourage her ideas and aspirations
What is important to her should be important to you as well. If you show an interest in what's important to her, you'll keep her smiling and feeling good about her dreams.
10. Make her laugh
A sense of humor usually tops a woman's attraction wish list and is one of the best ways to turn her on. A woman who finds herself laughing along with your great sense of humor is a girl who is more likely to fall for your charms.

So it’s the end of your date, following a great dinner and good conversation. You want to kiss her good night. But how do you know if the timing is right? Many men fail to recognize the signs a woman is interested in them and also when a woman wants to be kissed. To know if she's ready to be kissed, here are 5 clues to look for:
1. The flow of conversation turns romantic
When you're talking to her and the conversation between the two of you moves from general to more intimate topics, it's because she has romance on the brain and it's a sure sign that she is just waiting to be kissed.
2. She looks you directly in the eyes and doesn't look away
Another good sign that she's ready to be kissed is when you're talking to her and she stares into your eyes for longer than normal duration and she scans you up and down, keeping her eyes locked on you and your lips while she talks or drinks. By this point, she’s comfortable being with you and has already made up her mind that she likes what she sees.
3. She’s very flirty and physical with you
When a woman enters your personal space and begins twirling her hair in her fingers and touching you more often in different places, she’s inviting a response and trying to become more intimate with you. If she wants you to kiss her, she'll also do things like smile at you more often and discreetly expose more skin to you.
4. She's comfortable with you touching her
If you reach up and brush her hair with your hand (especially the hair by the face) and she reacts well to it (ie: Doesn't pull away or look at you funny), then chances are - she's open to being kissed!
5. She draws attention to her mouth and lips
There is no holiday gift quite as important or more difficult to choose successfully than the gift for the lady in your life. Whether you've only been dating for two weeks or you've been together for two years, most women will appreciate personable presents and the care you take in picking them out. So, when that time of year comes along where you have to open your heart and wallet to prove your love to your woman, consult this guide to find the perfect gift for your girl.
When holiday shopping for your girlfriend, sexy intimate wear is always a good choice that never gets old; however, keep in mind that not all lingerie is romantic. For example, something like, say, crotchless panties could be seen as slutty and more of a gift for you. When it comes to buying lingerie for your girlfriend, you have to think sensuous.
2. Popular Electronics
For the woman who happens to be a techie, popular items like digital cameras, portable reading devices and laptop computers are hot holiday gifts.
3. Aromatherapy candles
Scented candles are an inexpensive and charming gifts that can evoke strong emotional reactions and thus affect how she feels (especially around you).
4. Romantic getaway

5. Spa treatments
What woman wouldn't enjoy a day of pampering and being treated like a queen? Spa packages and treatments make great gifts for a woman, especially for one who could use some relaxation.
6. Body care kits
Women can never have enough beauty products, so get her a set of sensational body care, glamorous makeup and beauty goodies she can use.
7. Designer handbags
You can't go wrong with a designer handbag. It is the most useful and personal accessory a girl could possess, so if you plan to buy a purse for the lady in your life, you should know her personal preferences. You can figure that out by paying attention to what she’s carrying now.
Perfumes or fragrances are always sure to make her happy; however, you really need to know a woman well before you head to the perfume counter and successfully choose a winner on your own. If you are not sure what type of scent to get her, during a casual conversation find out what kind of perfume she wears or do a little snooping on your own.
9. Diamond jewelry
Believe it when you hear the old cliche', "Diamonds are a girl's best friend." Whether it's a simple pair of diamond stud earrings or a more elaborate piece, every woman loves to receive diamond jewelry; however, because this type of jewelry is often expensive and can be easily shown off, it's usually reserved for serious relationships.

Every guy likes to wine and dine his woman, but when extravagance and material possessions become the focal point, one has to question whether the relationship is based on genuine love or just money. If you are suspicious that the woman you are dating is more interested in your wallet than you, here are 8 warning signs that your girlfriend is a gold digger.
1. She only suggests expensive gifts, trips, restaurants, etc.
A gold digger will turn her nose up at heartfelt, sentimental gifts because she is eager for gifts that are caked with money and expects nothing less than 4 star accommodations and food venues, shopping at designer stores and exotic vacations.
2. She has temper tantrums when you don't buy her things
A gold digger has the emotional age of a child and will not hesitate throwing a tantrum when things don't go her way--especially when you refuse to buy something for her or give her more money.
3. She's overly concerned about your financial status
A gold digger is interested in hearing about your career and financial status from day one. She is a very manipulative woman who pretends to be interested in you by asking questions about your occupation so she can discover your job title, measure your earnings' potential and ensure that you have plenty of income to spend on her and support her lifestyle.
4. She never pays for anything
When it comes time to pick up the check for a dinner, a movie or just about anything else the two of you are undertaking-- she is nowhere to be found. If you are the one who is constantly shelling out money in the relationship, that should be your sign that she's just using you.
5. She feels entitled
A gold digger will walk around feeling entitled to the good life without feeling any need to lift a finger to achieve it. Since she craves status and doesn’t have long-term goals, the gold digger expects to drive a brand new car with luxury features and wear $500 shoes without feeling any need to earn her own money to achieve it. This type of high-maintenance woman feels that it's her right to be able to pursue her big dreams at the expense of financial stability, and, coincidentally, hasn't considered who will foot the bill.
6. She attempts to trap men into pregnancy
Everybody knows that unless a woman decides to artificially inseminate herself, conceiving a child takes is a two person act and if you decide to have unprotected sex with a woman, then you should be man enough to accept the consequences. However, a gold digger will insist on having unprotected sex and will use lines like "I can't feel it with the condom on, just take it off" and attempt to use guilt trips on you, i.e., "If you love me, why do you need a condom?"
A gold digger hopes to get pregnant so she can use it to her financial advantage as she sees kids as a lifelong financial insurance policy. She will intentionally stop using her birth control without you knowing and will even go as far as tampering with condoms prior to intercourse, i.e., putting a pin through her boyfriend's condom package without him ever suspecting it.
7. She heavily relies on others
A gold digger knows that you don't want to see her get an eviction notice, or get her car repossessed, and you're a good person who will always be in a position to help, right? Wrong. There's a big difference between someone who's just fallen on bad times and a woman that completely relies on others for fulfilling her costs of living and purchasing needs.
8. She lacks any career aspirations
A gold digger will avoid the subject of getting a job and demonstrate that she has no intention of ever developing a career outright even she is perfectly capable of doing so.
High maintenance women are those who need many things (money, material goods, affection) to be happy. They possess an almost obsessive attention to detail that extends beyond their person, to their homes, their pets, and yes, even their men. So, how can you distinguish whether or not the girl you thought was the best catch ever is really a prima donna behind closed doors? Read on to learn the 4 essential traits these demanding gals possess.
From the time we were infants, our parents told us to “be nice.” For the most part, it’s good advice; however, in a relationship, some men become too considerate, too helpful and too kind in an effort to seemingly align their lives with a woman’s wishes. Don't be one of them.
Women appreciate a gentleman, but they don't respect pushovers and they don't feel attraction for "nice" guys who always kiss up to them. Here are 10 signs that you’re too nice.
1. You give too many compliments
Women love compliments, but if you make too many or too big a compliment, most women won't believe you and will wonder what you are trying to sell them.
2. You're too understanding
Constantly trying to understand a woman's point of view as she walks all over you isn't being tolerant; it's being spineless and allowing yourself to be a doormat. Yes, being unfailingly understanding and considerate towards a woman may keep you in a relationship (for a short time) and prevent arguments and clashes with her, but it won't gain her respect and admiration.
3. You're always available
Always being available makes women think that you don't have a life of your own and actually lessens your own attractiveness, making you far less desirable.
4. You're always buying her gifts
Even though the thought is nice, the concept of constantly showering a woman with gifts will begin to lose its meaning and eventually she will become less thrilled and even annoyed receiving them.
5. You agree with everything she says
Guys that are too nice agree with everything a woman says, thinking that's what she wants. In reality, women want someone who is going to stimulate their minds and challenge them.
6. You let her choose everything
Not all of us like to make decisions, and deferring to your woman is OK sometimes; however, letting her call all the shots about EVERYTHING and EVERYWHERE you go is not good. Women are not turned on by men they can completely control and you do your relationship a good bit of damage when you show yourself to be indecisive.
7. You always pay for everything
With the traditional etiquette of a gentleman, guys have always been taught that paying a woman's way is the right thing to do; however, paying for stuff shouldn't always be left to one person. You don't have to split everything down the middle, but there does come a time in a relationship when the financial load should be shared.
8. You're too accommodating
Being helpful is one thing, but if you get in the habit of doing every little thing for her whenever she wants, she'll come to expect having her own butler and chauffeur around on a regular basis -- not a boyfriend. If running an errand is convenient for you, help her out by all means. But don't be afraid to put your foot down either.
9. You're too respectful in the bedroom
While every woman appreciates a gentleman, there are certain arenas in which you can be too respectful, particularly in the bedroom. Yes women deserve respect and they want you to be delicate with them for the most part; however, in the bedroom, women appreciate spontaneity, assertiveness and a sense of adventure and passion.
10. You're too interested in her
Becoming more interested in a woman's life than your own will ultimately make her bored with you. Yes, you want to take an interest in her career, her hobbies, etc...but it's a bad sign if you abandon all of your aspirations, neglect your interests and bail on your friends just so you can concentrate all of your energy on her.

Since the beginning of time, men have sought the attention of women, but very few know the key skills necessary to make a lasting impression on the women they want. In dating, making a woman come to you is the easy part; however, keeping her attention is the real challenge. Here are 4 ways to grab a woman's attention and keep it once you get it.
1. Be mysterious
A mistake most men make is exchanging their entire life story with a woman, especially on the first date. Women like a little mystery; however, this doesn't mean you should be boring and play the silent type. It just means you should be less forthcoming with details about your life. If a woman thinks she has you figured out, she will get bored; however, feed her a bit, but keep her curiosity growing and her interest in you will do the same. Don't lie to her or play mind games, but leave something hidden which will make her come back for more.
2. Make her miss you
Limiting your availability at the onset will also raise your value in her eyes, as it indicates that you have a sense of independence. As a relationship develops, it is essential to have a life of your own, so let her know that you have places to go and people to see. Let her wonder where you are, whom you're with and where you're going, and she will hope to cross paths with you more often than you think. You know the expression about absence making the heart grow fonder? Well, it's true.
3. Be interesting
A man with ideas, dreams and ambitions is exciting to be around. Women never feel attraction for a guy they perceive as desperate, needy or eager to please, but come across as a confident, self-aware guy who has a lot going on in his life and you'll be on the fast track to becoming irresistible to women. What woman could help but pay attention to a man that is engaged in the world, capable of bringing new and enlightening ideas into her world and constantly seeks personal growth and improvement?
4. Improve yourself
Most guys don’t take the time to work on themselves, but just as men demand that their women be good-looking, women demand and deserve the same. If you really want to grab a woman’s attention — and keep it — then be one of the few men who take the time to develop themselves into the kind of guy worthy of an amazing woman’s attention. Make sure you choose the right cologne, develop a good sense of style, stay well-groomed and always look your best.
Is there anything more attractive than a guy who can make women laugh? Using humor can relieve the nervous tension of first date jitters and level the ground between you, negate worries about "not being or looking good enough" and draw a man and a woman closer together. Even though some women fall for a guy's impressive job, savings account or his sexy body, the ability to make them laugh is a renowned dating and flirting strategy that works every time--if you know how to use it right.
Whether you realize it or not, humor is critical to your success with women. In fact, a sense of humor usually tops a woman's attraction wish list and is one of the best ways to turn her on. A woman who finds herself laughing along with your great sense of humor is a girl who is more likely to fall for your charms. Another key component of laughter is that when you’re funny around women, it presents you as the kind of guy who’s fun to be with, and if a woman is really interested romantically, she'll laugh at your jokes--even if they aren't funny!
Although laughter is a very effective dating technique, many guys get it completely wrong when they try to be funny around women. Guys who are desperately trying to seek a woman's approval do things like slap-sticky humor or act like a clown, making it obvious that they're trying to make her laugh and coming across as goofy or dorky. Not good.
In order to get a woman laughing and attracted at the same time, you have to get an idea as to what she may find amusing and tease her; however, this doesn't mean be a jerk. It means using gestures, facial expressions and voice tone to create a fun and flirty vibe and assume familiarity with her by doing things like mocking her voice, telling her funny jokes and stories and using your humor to break the touch barrier while making her laugh at the same time.
The only downside to this strategy is that when you're only teasing and making women laugh, you're not showing them the other parts of your personality. Humor is an effective tool, don’t get me wrong, but don’t rely on it to create attraction all by itself. When meeting new women, you don’t necessarily want to kick off every discussion with a joke. Instead, learn a little bit about the woman first and ask her questions, then once you’ve got her talking, you will gain access to more of her personality and seem like a more well-rounded and interesting type of guy.
When it comes to creating attraction, humor can be your most effective tool when you're talking to a woman. Not only will showing off your great sense of humor get a girl to laugh--it's bound to ensure that both of you enjoy your time spent together.
Women like a man who is confident in his abilities and can take care of himself (and them too if the need arises). They also appreciate an array of skills in men ranging from complex ones that show off masculinity to the emotional ones which indicate a guy's softer side. Although it's virtually impossible to impress every woman with the same one or two skills, here are the top five skills that impress women.
1. Being able to cook
Just about every woman is a little bit pleasantly surprised to discover that a guy can cook, actually wants to cook and seems to genuinely know what he's doing in the kitchen. You don’t have to start taking cooking classes, shop for expensive cookware or throw together an artistic dinner to impress a woman. Just start with a few basic recipes and practice them till they turn out right. As long the meals you prepare for her taste good and look and smell appetizing, you’re impressing her.
2. Being able to fix a car
Although not all men are crazy about engines or getting grease all over their sleeves and hands, in order to impress a woman, it is usually enough to be able to maintain a car correctly, replace a flat tire and diagnose basic car troubles correctly instead of opening the hood and looking confused.
3. Being able to speak a foreign language
A woman is bound to be impressed by a man who can speak a foreign language, especially when you just let it come up at the right moment. Apart from the fact speaking a foreign language requires certain level of intelligence and is a skill that is more difficult to learn as an adult, it is also a sign of worldliness, which intrigues women.
4. Being a handyman
It's very impressive to a woman when you're willing to get your hands dirty and can be relied upon to maintain a home and perform basic repairs.
5. Being able to converse with them
Women are impressed by men who can express their opinions and feelings in a masculine way. Unfortunately, most men don't realize that a woman's idea of communication means actually listening to what she has to say and understanding her, as well as relate to her problems without judging her or providing unwanted advice. When you learn how to listen to a woman and adequately express yourself, she will feel understood and respected and you will experience fewer communication problems in your relationship.
