You’re always on your phone

By doing this you’ve already created a wall around yourself. The minute everyone on your table goes somewhere you turn to your phone. This behaviour screams ‘don’t talk to me, go away, I’m busy”.

You’re always underdressed

Women like playing dress up when going out and they do it for themselves and not anyone else, it’s a great mood lifter. Rocking up to late night drinks in your old sweatpants isn’t going to make it rain men for you unfortunately.

You’re always with a crowd of 10-plus people

Believe it or not men do get shy and a group of women always intimidate them. If you’re still on a search for a man, limit the company you keep to four people, maximum.

You always break eye contact

If you catch a guy looking at you, you immediately turn away and not in a ‘I’m shy, come talk to me’ kind of way but in a ‘I’m not interested’ kind of way.

You always act like you’re too good for anyone

There’s having standards and then there’s being an obnoxious narcissist and that’s not attractive at all. Frowning half the time in social spaces will definitely not make men line up for you.

You never order a drink

You’d rather order tea or a water when everyone else is ordering cocktails, boring! It doesn’t have to be anything alcoholic, but a colorful cocktail always looks sexy on a woman. Men will immediately assume that you’re not in the mood to loosen up and you’d rather be home knitting.

You don’t engage

When everyone else is mingling, or dancing you’re stuck in a corner somewhere. This sends negative signals to the opposite sex.

You’re always busy

If it’s not pouring drinks, or clearing the table, then it’s just making sure that everyone is okay. You’re clearly preoccupied and no man would want to disturb a ‘busy’ woman.

You hang around your male friend, a lot!

Other men won’t know that he’s only just your friend. Every move you make will be seen as flirting, even if you’re only having a good laugh with a friend. Give the male pals a break if you want to catch yourself a hottie.

You’re rude

Rudeness can be percieved in many different ways and little things like yelling at the waiter for something small can scare off a guy who’s been eyeing you from across the table.
