The most basic error. The A, B, D. The 1, 2, 4. Your night is progressing nicely. You’re happily chatting and/or dancing away with the one you like and alcohol is making everything so much easier. It follows that more alcohol will only make things even easier. QUICK, DRINK AS MUCH ALCOHOL AS YOU CAN! Wake up in the morning to find you’ve given them 10 missed calls because, presumably, they must have missed the fifteen texts you sent them before.
2. Coming on too strong
The oldest and still the best, coming on too strong is such a rookie error but my lord we all do it a lot don’t we. “Ooh, that person’s attractive. NOW-I-MUST-TALK-TO-THEM-FOR-THE-NEXT-3-HOURS-WITHOUT-PAUSING-FOR-BREATH.” You say your hellos to your mates, pretend you just happened to walk over to the target, let someone introduce you and off you go. Some words we should all remember – it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
