7 Harsh-But-True Reason You Scare Men Away

Don't give up! Online dating can help you find true love, but there are some things you can do that will make it harder to find love.

During my 12 years as a relationship expert, I've noticed a trend repeating itself over and over and over again.

1. Having unrealistic expectations

Many women believe that if they describe the ideal man in their journals or pin images of him on Pinterest, that Prince Charming will somehow "manifest" himself on the dating scene.

2. Having standards that are too high

You want Prince Charming, but are you his equal in all regards? Do you want handsome looks, a person of character, and a partner with a great personality? Well so does he!

3. Messaging back and forth endlessly

If you're not looking for a pen pal, stop exchanging so many messages before meeting (or deciding you're not interested). Again, men are visual. What is the alternative? Skype video chat is suggested. This permits a face-to-face conversation to take place from a safe distance.

4. Thinking that every man wants you

Successful men have their pick of women. Having your guard up and thinking (or acting) like being with you is every man's quest makes you come across as a pompous, egotistical queen bee.

5. Waiting on him to call you

This is the 21st century, so act like it. Successful men are busy. Just because he didn't call you doesn't mean he's not interested.Moreover, some men want to see if you're really interested in them, as well. Don't play the waiting game. If you like the guy, show him. Actions speak louder than words.

6. Posting group photos instead of selfies on your online dating profile

Compare this to going to a club with a group of your girlfriends. Under such circumstances, the likelihood of a man approaching you is extremely low.The same applies to online dating. Therefore, eliminate photographs that depict you with groups of women or children, or that do not depict you at all.

7. Making demands

One of the worst mistakes you can make in a conversation (or put on your profile) is a statement that makes you look desperate or freakishly controlling.
