I started dating recently (I went to Miraval spa last week) and I'm obsessed with meditation.When I meditate for 15 minutes in the morning, I get clear on what I want.There are women who worry the guy will walk away if she doesn't sleep with him on date three, especially the handsome, rich guys — the ones who seem like really good catches.But believe it or not, some guys have traditional ideas about sleeping together quickly and may think you are too easy for hopping into bed on date three.So even if someone comes in to ask you out, you'll know before you step off the curb whether to waste your time.I think what happens is we're taking dates just to take dates and then we're like ' Eh, the blind date didn't turn out to be like the picture online' or ' My friend didn't really think about what I wanted.' I think less dating, more quality.

Men know in one second, yes or no."They overshare on the date."Women are so trusting that they tell too much information about themselves. They say, "Oh, I had two cocktails, I'm all relaxed, now he's my best friend and I can tell him whatever I want." They're nervous, they drink too much, and they tell their life story—and sometimes their life story is not a good story to tell."They don't let the guy talk enough."The way you talk on a date should be like a tennis match, but the guy should talk three times as often. You don't say, ' Hey, do you want to get married? Most people do not have manners.".__Read more matchmaking advice, like 8 Tips to Getting Him to Notice You in 10 Days!
They go on too many unproductive dates."It's better not to date unless you're out of practice. You're reading a book, you're eating an hors d'oeuvre, you're meeting a friend--and then you're more approachable because you're by yourself."They think a guy will always like them if he just gets to know them."A guy knows right away if he's attracted to you or not.
