Will I Turn Him Off If I’m Too Aggressive?

Rate This

Dating Coach Joann Cohen explains how you can be too forward when meeting a man.

One of the common questions I get from women is, can they be too aggressive or forward when they meet a new man to let them know that they are interested in pursuing him?

And you can be, and it can scare the guys. So one of the suggestions I have is make sure you pay attention to his body language and his cues.

If you are really interested in him and you are signaling to him that, how is he responding? Does he seem open to it? Is he backing away? Is he folding his arms? Is he making excuses?

Those are showing you that you are going a little bit too fast, a little bit too aggressive.

Also if you are interested in him in a physical way you can also scare the guys as much as sometimes we think guys want sex no matter what, if you are too physically aggressive or sexually aggressive you can scare the man away too because he may not want sex with you right away. He may be wondering where this is all going.

I had a male client, that’s what happened with him on a first date. A woman came on to him and he did not want to go near her or go to her apartment or walk her to her car.

So ladies, the most important thing is to really pay attention to that man, what he is saying and also his body language to see, are you matching his pace and is he matching yours?
