Insights from a Matchmaker: Dating Advice Men Wish They Knew When They Were Younger

Matchmaker: Dating Advice

Have you ever heard a sound piece of advice – whether professionally or personally – which made you think, “That’s something I wish I had known when I was younger”?

Many men feel this way when they first begin working with a Lyons Elite dating coach (consultations with a dating coach is part of our matchmaking packages), as a result of the solid, actionable dating advice they receive.

So we decided to round up some of these dating insights, and share it with all our readers today. What follows is a sampling of dating advice which men wish they knew when they were younger. You may find these particularly helpful as you embark on your matchmaking journey.


  • If she’s giving you mixed signals, then it’s probably a “no” from her. For example, suppose she’s not sure if she wants to be in a relationship with you, but hasn’t completely ruled it out. In this case, there’s a good chance she’s just trying to let you down easy because she has a tough time rejecting people outright. Or she’s just not in a place in her life where she knows what (and who) she wants. Either way, it’s best to move on from the situation and meet someone who is eager and excited to be in a relationship with you.


  • A sign she’s just not that into you? She takes a good while to respond to your text messages, but nonetheless she’s almost always glued to her phone when you’re out and about with her (and not for any work-related reasons, either). A woman who digs your company will have the time to respond to you in a timely fashion – particularly if she uses her phone a lot.


  • Don’t enter into a relationship with someone just because they’re “nice.” It might make you feel bad to turn someone down because they’re such a nice person, but don’t dive into a relationship with someone for that reason alone. If you don’t feel attracted to them, then your relationship won’t work out well – no matter how nice, kind, and friendly of a person they are.


  • If you’re thinking of breaking up with someone, don’t get duped by the Sunk Cost fallacy. What is the Sunk Cost fallacy? It’s an error in thinking where one’s decision to abandon or continue on with something – whether a business project or a romantic relationship – is based on how much time, effort, and resources have already been invested in that thing. Thus, some people are reluctant to leave a relationship because they’ve already put years of their life into it. But the truth is that for the sake of your own happiness, you shouldn’t stay in a relationship solely because of how much you’ve put into it.


A quick closing remark: if you’re interested in finding love for your life – but don’t want to waste time going on dates with people who aren’t compatible with you – then elite matchmaking may be for you.

In which case, just go ahead and contact Lyons Elite today.
