I scare guys off as I can't play cool; READ JOAN AT WWW.DAILYRECORD.CO.UK/JUSTJOAN.
QWHY can't I play it cool with men? I have no trouble meeting them and being asked out but don't know how to keep them.
All of my friends seem to be able to keep men interested but the minute I start going out with someone, I go into overdrive and do too much phoning, emailing and texting.
I have always felt the need to try to get attention.
My best friend can be mad about someone but, in no time at all, they're mad about her too and constantly running after her.
I get so obsessed about anyone who shows an interest, I make a total fool of myself.
AIT'S very common - especially if you've always felt the need to look for attention.
But why not enlist the help of your best friend and do what she does? If you desperately want to text or phone someone, speak to her instead and promise yourself you can get in touch with the man you like the next day.
Keep telling yourself that you are more likely to keep someone interested if you play it cool.
