Let's take a look at some of the advice, these are from a selection of websites on how not to appear desperate.
Being available at any time
Dating and confidence consultant, Nick Notas has an in-depth article on ''10 Mistakes that make you look desperate''. This includes:
Telling someone the days that you are free makes perfect sense. It would be wrong to lie just to make yourself look busy, this is an awful way to start a relationship. If you don't have a busy life then please embrace it, your date might be glad that you actually have time for them. You have already been single for far too long, so reinventing yourself as a busy person to get women to chase you isn't going to help. Relationships need time and effort, they should not be squeezed into your fake busy schedule.
Over pleasing and lies
Desperate singles are warned about over-pleasing their dates/partners. There must be millions of people in relationships desperate to be over-pleased!
Don't lie or embellish the truth. The truth will always prevail; embellishing your attributes to catch the attention of another is a desperate maneuver that will most certainly come back to haunt you.
Dr. Carmichael makes a very valid point with respect to the truth which also contradicts Nick Notas' advice about inventing a busy life. Being honest is so important and this emphasizes the key point of just being yourself.
Try something different
Hunt Ethridge, relationship expert says that at some stage you may need to try a different approach. If something isn't working then why keep trying over and over again?
Don't play games or follow rules
