If you always seem to be wondering what happened, and why you’re still single, learn the top things of what pushes men away.

If you are still single and you are wondering why there are a few big things you need to know about what pushes men away. I’ve been doing tons of online profile makeovers. I send out a questionnaire to people ready to make their online dating life EPIC, so I get to take a peek about what they think.

1. Not being true to yourself

One of the men, who just happened to be a speaker on Ted TV, hired me to re-write his profile  (I felt honored having such a smarty hire me), and this is was a response to one of my questions, “I think the worst thing is when someone doesn’t know herself, like when she has an idea about what she should be.

3. Not Understanding How To Talk To Men.

“I value someone who articulates uncertain feelings and isn’t in denial about it, is another quote from the same man. If you don’t understand your feelings, it’s all right to vocalize it in an easy to understand way. You can use words like

  • “I feel confused about the way I feel.”
  • “I’m still sorting out my feelings.”
  • “I might be a little bit scared and need some time to talk about it when I’m not feeling so emotional.”
  • “I’m upset right now and I would rather talk about the situation when we both feel better.”
  • “I’m not sure what’s going on, but I think a connecting with a hug would be a good start.”
