4. Talking About Marriage or Children Too Soon
You’re a woman who knows what she wants, and there’s nothing wrong with letting any potential suitors know that you’re not about wasting time or playing games. You want to be married, you want children and the white picket fence – wonderful. He may very well want those things too, but there’s a time and a place to discuss those things – and at the movies on your first date isn’t the time or place. If HE brings it up first, then sure…state your desires (briefly) and keep the conversation moving. Don’t discuss honeymoon destinations or baby names just yet, or he may think you’re more concerned about your biological clock than genuinely getting to know him. Even if you can tell that he likes you and may even want to pursue a relationship with you, leave the topic of settling down into blissful monogamy off the table for a while, or leave it up to him to bring up first. Take your time and get to know him and worry about the marriage and the baby carriage later.
