Like many other guys there was a point in my life when I didn’t want to play the game anymore. These mistakes turned into three lessons that have changed my entire perspective on dating. One day he will realise that you are actually hopeless at rugby, wear skinny jeans that are cropped at the bottom and that you would much rather listen to Cheryl Cole than AC/DC.

Firstly, I realised that I was placing too much pressure on the outcome of the date, willing for it to be a ‘happily ever after’ love story before the referee’s whistle had even been blown. Lastly, I noticed that I had a habit of deleting failed dates from my phonebook and from my life.

Who knows what other types of non-sexual relationships I may have formed with these men?

Perhaps somewhere down the line a failed date may have even turned into a successful matchmaker for as the saying goes “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”.

This section of “relationship questions” focuses on your partner's favorite and least favorite things in life.

There were three mistakes that I continuously made which could explain why dating was so daunting. As part of my self-reflection I noticed that this form of self-editing was evident to varying degrees throughout most of my dating history. If a relationship is formed on the basis of either one of you not being your true selves then you will have no choice but to keep up the charade until the truth eventually comes out (and it always comes out).

We start with general fun relationship love questions.
