If you have been single for a while and can't figure out why, it might be because you are making one of these four common mistakes.

These four things are courtesy of Match.com:

  1. You don't get out and socialize often enough.  Staying in and binge watching "Game of Thrones" can sound appealing after a long day or week of work, but it's not going to get you dates.
  2. You keep dating the same type of person over and over again.  If your last few relationships failed miserably, it's probably time to reassess and make some changes.
  3. You have a "friend with benefits."  Having a sure thing is such a tempting option, it'll probably keep you from meeting someone who's dating material. And if you're hoping it develops into a real relationship, well you're wasting your time.
  4. You're still hung up on an ex.  The last thing anyone wants to hear about is how big a jerk your ex is.  If you've still got some baggage from a past relationship, deal with it before trying to jump into something new.

So there are some common mistakes, now that you know, get out there and get back into the game.
