Relationships and dating are a minefield, and we’ve all trodden on a few mines in our time. Here are some embarrassing and daft mistakes to avoid making with men.

1. Mistaken identity

Make a play for a gay man. Yes, I will put my hands up and confess to having done this. I still cringe.

2. Insubordination

Getting drunk at the office party and making a play for your boss. Double points for stupidity if he is married. Triple points if his wife is present.

3. Text-crazy

Texting him 20 times a day. In a new relationship, spells STALKER. In an established relationship, says ‘I DON’T TRUST YOU’.

4. Being a fool

Getting or staying involved with someone who is spoken for. No, no, no, no, no. You will look back one day and say ‘What WAS I thinking?!!’ The embarrassment comes when you finally realize what a mug you were to believe his stories.

5. Shopaholic

Buying his underwear. What are you, his mother?

7. Baby daddy

Talking early on about how much you want children. You might as well wear a t-shirt saying ‘looking for baby daddy’, as that is what the poor guy will immediately assume.

8. Online dating

Believing what a guy says on an internet dating site! I’m single = I’m married. I’m 38 = well I was 15 years ago. Looking for long-term relationship = I might sleep with you twice.

That’s just the start! There are so many ways we make fools of ourselves with men that this post could be of epic proportions. What have you done that made you cringe?
