We've all been guilty of this one, at some point in our lives or another.Wasting time - either in a relationship that's going nowhere or getting over a heartbreak - is one of the biggest and most common mistakes women make.
The most common dating mistakes often spring from underlying issues of self-esteem (think too little of yourself, and you'll settle for less-than-ideal situations - think too much of yourself, and you believe bad behavior is absolved by your sheer fabulousness).
More often, dating doozies result from failure to recognize - or simply accept - the different ways men and women approach relationships.

Again, remind us: "Men fall in love quickly - but they also fall out of love quickly." Sure, it can be flattering, even exhilharating, when a man you've just met wants to see you several times a week and talk to you for hours on the phone.
But unfortunately the result is a white-hot romance that burns brightly and then fizzles out.
