Men are hard to read when it comes to dating and relationships, so here's a few things men want women to know about their dating world:
1. Men get tired of asking women out. It takes courage to ask a woman on a date. A little understanding and a show of appreciation can go a long way in making a guy feel like the effort was worth it.
2. Guys get turned off by women who play hard to get. Men need signs to know if a woman is interested. As Monica Marshall explains, "Playing the ice queen or being evasive is not enticing to men; it's confusing or just plain off-putting."
3. Guys like things to grow. A guy wants to see the relationship is progressing. So if if it doesn’t seem like his interest in you is equally reciprocated after a couple of dates, he may just assume you aren't into him and move on.
4. Men want to feel admired. Most guys would rather go out with a cute girl who appreciates them than a gorgeous movie star who can only muster an indifferent thank you at the end of a well-planned evening.
