What is the third deadly dating sin for women?
The deadly dating sin number three is the fashion sin. As women, we look at that guy s clothing and we say if he is not nicely neatly cleanly dressed, the shirt is pressed relatively fashionably dressed; forget it, he is just not going to cut the mustard. I have even had a women say, I can tell everything I need t know about a man by looking at his shoes.
Well, I think that is a bit over the top. Yes, what you can tell about a man is whether not he polishes his shoes but you really cannot tell if this man is honest, ethical intelligent, moral, kind, warm, genuine, sincere by his shoes. So again, we have to remember that for a guy he might not be in date mood yet.
So, this all about increasing your opportunities and not cutting your nose to spike your face; do not make judgments about a man that are too early and miss an opportunity to have a wonderful relationship with a wonderful guy. Yes, we want a guy who knows how to dress, but you know we can change those things sometimes, we can help them a little bit. So, do not let the dress be the determining factor on that first and second date for whether or not this is the man of your dreams and whether or not you are going to spend your rest of your life with him.
The more open minded you can be and the more you can understand that this guy might not be in date mood yet, the better your opportunity will be to truly find a fantastic man.
