People are fascinated by love and relationships, and just recently there have been some major studies into attraction, dates, love and relationships. Surprisingly, these studies have discounted a lot of info that us women thought were key tofinding love… from whether to make the first move to what to wear. I’ve been hunting through, and here are the 7 biggest dating myths…
1 Flash Some Flesh?
2 Men Love Women Who Make the First Move?
For years, dating advisors have been instructing women to have confidence, and make the first move on guys they like. After all, women have equal rights now, and men can be shy too. The new studies monitored new couples, recording who made the first move, and found that typically whoever approaches the other first usually ends up falling hard. So look great, smile at him, and wait for him to come over...
3 Show Him How Connected You Are by Talking about Shared Interests
4 Eat Low Calorie Foods to Show You Look after Yourself
Chances are, he isn’t paying much attention to what you are eating, and studies have shown that men prefer women who will be themselves and eat what they like, rather than picking something low calorie like a salad. It looks guarded, and fake, and you’ll only steal his chips anyway!

6 “Be-friend” Him, and He’ll Fall for You
7 Ask Questions, and Don’t Talk about Yourself
For as long as I can remember, women have been instructed to keep conversation about themselves to a minimum, and to ask lots of questions on a first date. Well, this isn’t entirely bad advice. Having a genuine interest in the person you are talking too is great, but also talk about yourself. Men love women who talk about themselves... it shows independence,confidence, self disclosure and internal happiness. So go for it!
Dating using these new rules is very different! I sent some friends on ‘test dates’, and not only did they admit to having a much better time and relaxing more, they also found that the guys asked them for second dates much faster! So I’d really recommend giving them a try… have you found a dating rule which is simply not true? Please share it with me!
