9 Ways NOT To Impress A Woman

n-BAD-FLIRT-large570From revealing romantic feelings for a friend to crafting a spiffy e-opener, catching the interest of someone you’d like to date can be hard. (Seriously, we sympathize with any single woman or man.)

But while the methods one can use to woo a lady have definitely expanded, some should just never be used.

Redditor Alexander_Dumass asked the ladies of the AskWomen forum to weigh in on the worst pickup techniques. Here are nine things men do to impress women that really don’t work:

1. Talk trash about women. “It literally makes no sense but it’s so common.”

2. Insult the person you’re currently dating. “As if that will make me change my mind and hop on your dick instead.”

3. Show off their wealth. One Redditor put it perfectly:

It’s not douchey to have money or to spend money on nice things. It is douchey to brag about how much money you make and the nice things you own, to make a big show of spending your money so everyone can see how rich you are, or to act as though being wealthy somehow makes you better than those around you.
4. Send unsolicited dick pics. “You’re gross.”

5. Give you a “resume” of why you should date them. “‘I’m real buff, I’ll treat you real nice, I make lots of money, I’ll buy you gifts…’ Like I’m some sort of a shallow brainless twit that is looking to hire a boyfriend.”

6. Brag about how many women they’ve slept with. “He went from talking about pound town to asking me downtown. It was, sadly, not a joke.”

7. Lie about their interests to make it seem like the two of you have more in common. “If you’ve never seen Blade Runner, for example, don’t say you have just because its my favorite film. I can always tell when they’re lying about this and I don’t think it’s sweet.”

8. Follow you around the gym. “I’m busy, bro.”

9. Talk only about themselves. “I’m glad that you assume that you’re more interesting than I am.”

7 things women find unattractive about men

Unattractive female habits

One minute you’re making our hearts all warm and fuzzy, and the next we feel a little bit sick because of your gender-specific habits. We know you gentlemen aren’t all the same, but when a man has any of the following habits it’s unattractive. Here are seven things women find unattractive about men:

Unattractive male habit 1: Boasting

Some guys big themselves up so much that it would appear they’re trying to prove to themselves that they’re a good catch. We’ve heard about how amazing your job is, how much money you’re earning, how hot your exes were, how everyone loves you. Now time to talk about ourselves… nope, because you haven’t finished bigging up your car and your house and your hilarious personality (erm, really?). Do you think that all this bragging will make us overlook the fact that you’re so boring? Being egotistical won’t make the ladies stick around so employ a bit of modesty and try asking questions about us rather than blabbing about yourself all the time.

Unattractive male habit 2: Having no old-fashioned values

We don’t expect you to act like one of the gentlemen from a Charles Dickens’ film, but not being gentlemanly at all is a huge turn-off. You can take us on a few dates and treat us like a queen but the day you leave us to walk down a dark alley to find our car is the day we suddenly realise we’re not attracted to you anymore. We want a man who has old-fashioned values and treats his women with respect. We like to be looked after and feel safe when we’re with you, not feel as though you could ditch us at any moment because you’ve remembered you’re late for the pub with the lads.

Unattractive male habit 3: No sense of humour

If there’s one thing a man must possess to make us feel attracted to them, it’s a sense of humour. It’s a powerful tool in a conversation, particularly when overcoming awkward moments, and not having one makes you seem overly serious and boring. When we’re laughing until we can barely breathe at something undeniably hilarious, it’s not very attractive when you sit there straight-faced and serious. The guy who is having a laugh with his friends, however, always looks like a fun person to be around. We like the guy who is intelligent enough to make us laugh until our ribs hurt and won’t give us an evil stare when we start breaking out into a giggle.

Unattractive male habit 4: Scratching your private parts

They’re the big manly hands we like to hold, the hands that make us feel safe, the hands you cook the tea with on the odd occasion, and the hands you er… scratch your privates with – nice. It’s definitely a turn-off for women when men shamelessly scratch ‘down there’ without a care in the world. It gets worse when you insist on stealing our chips. You don’t pinch one off the top; you rummage right the way down to the bottom with your scratching hand. At least get your scratching fix in the bathroom when you’re not in full view of everyone else. And then wash your hands afterwards.

Unattractive male habit 5: Lack of ambition

Most women are attracted to men who have a focus in life, and we find it repulsive if you have no ambition to achieve anything. It makes it hard for us to respect you if you can’t speak to us about your goals, ideas, and things you want to achieve. No one wants to settle down with the guy who gets his kicks out of lazing around on the sofa watching day time television while we’re working hard to achieve our dreams. Getting your kicks out of video games and nothing else is sad and boring.

Unattractive male habit 6: Expecting us to clean up after you

So you get annoyed at us for nagging, right? Well don’t give us a reason to nag then. If you didn’t leave a trail of clothes, food, and towels around the house then we wouldn’t have anything to nag about. You make out as though we’re clean freaks whose lives revolve around cleaning and tidying when, in actual fact, we just don’t want to live in a pig sty. You suddenly lose your attractiveness once we’ve seen your boxer shorts scattered around the floor and your beard hairs in the sink. We’ll clean our stuff up, you clean yours. We know this will never happen, but you’d be a million times more attractive if it did.

Unattractive male habit 7: Being over-protective

As much as we love to feel safe and cared for, there’s a fine line between that and being over-protected. Being over-protective is a sign of insecurity, and we like our men to be independent and tough. One minute we’re saying thanks to the postman for delivering a parcel, the next we’re being accused by our other half of flirting and wanting to marry the guy. Accusing us of fancying every Tom, Dick and Harry that crosses our path is annoying and it makes you seriously unattractive.

How to Meet Friends Online — Instead of Your Soulmate

Lots of Chummy Club members aren’t looking to pick out china patterns just yet. Instead of settling down with a soulmate, getting married, and having 2.5 kids, a dog, and a white picket fence, they simply want to find friends online!
Unlike other dating sites, Chummy Club isn’t just focused on romantic relationships. Whether you’ve just moved to a new town or you just want to expand your social life, it’s easy to find friends online. Just follow these 3 tips:

1. Don’t confuse “friends” with “friends with benefits”
If you’re simply trying to find friends online, make that clear in the beginning. There are plenty of people who use our social networking services who want a purely platonic relationship — not just a random hookup.

2. Use all of our tools
Here at Chummy Club, you’ll get an email every day with matches we’ve selected for you, based on the results of your compatibility test. But don’t stop there! We’ve got a big Facebook and Twitter network that can help you find friends that don’t necessarily match you in a romantic way — but can still be great people to get to know.

3. Keep the same safety precautions in mind
If you were looking for love online, you wouldn’t give out your phone number or meet someone in person until you felt comfortable. Looking for friends online is no different. Just because there’s no romance involved doesn’t mean you can let your guard down.
As much as we love our members, we also encourage them to be realistic. You have to get to know someone before you can trust them. That’s why we offer so many ways to communicate right here on the site — so that you don’t have to give out information that you don’t want to. That way, you can find online friends in a safe, secure way!

Looking for Love Online? Follow these Tips!

In the years since Chummy Club began, I’ve seen a lot of people find love online — while other people have made big mistakes. If you’re looking for true love online, these tips can help you get it. And, they’ll help you through each step of the online dating process — so that you never have to “fly blind”.

1. Be creative — without being dishonest
A creative profile name or a profile picture taken at a creative angle can fetch more attention than a profile that looks just like everyone else’s. However, don’t let your creativity get in the way of the facts. Using a photo of you from 10 years ago is dishonest — not creative.
Same goes for the information in your profile. No one’s going to think you’re creative when you list “Corporate Executive” on your profile when you’re really the Executive Secretary. Instead, they’re going to think you’re a liar — and liars don’t find love online!

2. Break the ice
Once you start talking to a match, throw in some fun questions, like “If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?” Questions like these help you get to know someone, while also seeing if you can have fun with them. Remember, finding love online is all about chemistry. If you and a match can’t have a fun conversation, there’s no “spark” there — and you need to keep looking.

3. Follow your gut
Knowing how to find love online means knowing how to listen to your gut. Generally, you gut can tell pretty quickly whether someone’s right for you. If you’re getting a “funny” feeling about a match, don’t ignore it!

Totally free dating that does not skimp on services or features

Free Online Dating — It Really Is Possible!
 
Most people are shocked when they hear that Chummy Club is a completely free online dating service.  Some of them, though, are also a little skeptical.  They wonder how good an online dating site can be if you don’t have to pay for it.
Luckily, free online dating services are becoming more and more common — and they don’t force members to settle for less-than-stellar service!
For example, here at Chummy Club, we offer the same services as those expensive online dating services.  Our compatibility test was created by a unique team of a psychologist, a psychiatrist, and a social worker.  We use the latest trends — like Facebook and Twitter — to help our members get to know each other.  And, we offer daily emails that are chock full of new matches.
Plus, we offer several advantages BECAUSE we’re a free online dating service — that the expensive dating sites can’t give you — like:
– Access to more people
Since it’s free to sign up, more people are likely to join a free online dating service — because there’s no risk for them.  That way, you can wind up with a bigger selection of matches than you’ll find on one of the expensive dating sites.
 
– Free access to new friends 
Maybe you just moved to a new town and don’t know how to meet people.  The last thing you want is to pay a ton of money to an online dating site just to make a few friends.  But when you take advantage of a free online dating service, you can find people right in your neighborhood that are looking for new friends of their own!
 
– A great alternative for single parents 
There are lots of single parents out there who want to get out and have a social life — but don’t have any extra money to spend on an online dating site membership.  Thanks to a free online dating service, they can start anew!
