A Podcaster and Relationship Expert Gives Five Suggestions for People in Search of Love

By Katherine Zammuto


I have been doing my podcast, Kat on the Loose Sex, Dating & Relationships, for almost three years now, and during this period of time, I have learned a lot from my own experiences in the world of dating and also from interviewing so many guests and experts.

Here are some very common mistakes women and men make when trying to find the ideal partner. Keep from making them, and avoid heartbreak and a lot of headaches!

1 . Don’t go meet someone from a dating app in person before doing your due diligence. In this day and age, anyone can be easily identified online, so there is no shame in asking the basic questions: last name, workplace, any social media accounts, and so on. If the person hesitates and does not want to disclose the basics with you before meeting, major red flag!

One thing that I do a lot and that works for me and my girlfriends is always asking for a video call before an actual date, to see what the person really looks like and how they communicate. It’s always a great idea to avoid wasting time!

2. Don’t give people you don’t know money for any reason or any excuse in the world!

If you are lonely, talk to a friend, talk to a relative, adopt a dog– do whatever you have to do, but there’s no reason in the world why you would give your money to somebody you just met or you are about to meet!

3. Do not make yourself too available to a new someone in your life. They will not appreciate it, they will not think, “Wow she’s making so much time for me, this is amazing”. Quite the contrary, they will take you for granted and, think that you are way too easily available. It will definitely backfire.

Make yourself a priority during a new relationship and stick to your schedule and your goals – let the person fit into whatever extra time you have.

4. Common courtesy and respect is important. That goes for both men and women. If you met someone through a dating app and said you were interested in having a relationship, then delete the app after a few months into this relationship.

It is extremely rude to stay on the app. One of your friends could potentially match with the person you are dating– which happened to me and was awful and very humiliating! Remember to treat everybody with the same kindness and respect that you would like to be treated. Dating apps are no excuse to treat people like disposable fast-food trash!

5. This one should go without saying, but it’s the number one complaint out there from men and women: don’t start anything with a lie. Nothing that starts based on lies will work out in the long run.

If you lie about your age, about how you look, about your weight, your height, or your financial status, this guarantees that a potential relationship will not go anywhere. The same applies to lying about your appearance and altering your photos too much. Whoever you are going to meet needs to like you for you, so don’t cover it up. Put yourself out there, be brave, be kind, be nice, and the right person will really appreciate you for who you are!
