Want to come across in a negative way? You will if you come up to bat with these dating techniques.
Strike 1: Be arrogant. Let the person know that you're doing him or her a favor by even talking. Keep the conversation centered on yourself.
Strike 2: Be impatient. Keep looking at your watch or looking for someone better looking to come along. Don't waste a lot of time - just get the phone number.
Strike 3: Be insincere. Pretend that you're interested in what the person is saying. Communicate only enough interest to get what you want: that person's phone number or to get asked out.
