As a result, most women don’t assert themselves or their needs as much as they really should. A friend of mine just lamented to me about the time, money, and headspace she’d spent on dates during the month of May.
She’d changed her schedule to accommodate these “super-busy” working men, spent money on everything from a book to a new outfit, and had generally been confused by their behavior from start to finish. Make sure you’re not stressing or over-investing during the first several dates.

The good guys have perhaps barely registered your interest at all, and you’re not filtering hard enough for the bad ones (we’ll get to that; keep reading).
Letting guys plan dates is one of the first I’d get rid of.
Men, who typically tell me they’re spontaneous and easygoing, would feel a lot less pressure if women gave some suggestions.
Texting first can rid you of a bad If he’s a good (perhaps reluctant) guy who’s truly interested in you, he’ll be excited to hear from you — and you’ll be able to sense that interest.
