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.

"We all make mistakes." Nowhere is the cliché more apt than when it comes to relationships.
