There are over seven billion people on the planet. With that many people walking around, the math says you should never, ever, sleep alone – unless you want to, of course.

Here are some scientifically proven ways that you could be sabotaging your chances of scoring:

You're Looking for a Soul Mate – According to a recent poll, a whopping 63 percent of single American guys in their 20s believe in the idea of a soul mate, and they think that finding this person is more important than anything else about the relationship. This is setting 63 percent of guys up for failure. Remember, there are seven billion people on the planet. Finding that “special one” is ridiculous.
You're Dating Online – Just the opposite of looking for a soul mate, dating online is a problem because there are too many possibilities. Scientists have found that too many possibilities online are causing people to never think what they have is good enough and keep them constantly looking for the next best thing.
You're in the Friend Zone – According to studies, the friend zone is real and there are plenty of guys who get sucked into it. The biggest problem with the friend zone is that it takes time. If you’re spending time with your “friend,” you’re not spending time naked, in bed with someone who’s more than a friend.
Your First Relationship Was Amazing – Researchers have found that if you use your first awesome and fun relationship as a baseline for what more adult, and more difficult relationships should be like, you will never be happy. Block out that past stuff and play the hand you are dealt today. (
