A relationship expert has revealed the top six mistakes keeping Australian men and women single – including expecting their partner to tick every box and leaving at the first sign of trouble.
Dating Coach, Louanne Ward, shared the six mistakes in a video on Instagram recently in the hopes it could help people find their ‘forever’ match.
The first mistake people make, according to the expert, is expecting their partner to be everything they want them to be.

This can lead to disappointment when the probably impossible expectations are not met and can even signal the beginning of the end of a new relationship.
The second mistake people make is to see their new partner’s differences as a negative.
‘It is important to have differences and similarities,’ she explains.
The third mistake people make is failing to live in the present with a new partner.
‘You are comparing the person to past experience you have had and the future experience you want to have, so you aren’t actually present in the relationship,’ she said.
Being afraid of ‘settling’ is the fourth mistake people make – and means they often end relationships if a new partner doesn’t tick every box.
Number five is that people often run away from relationships too early,
‘You leave first sign of trouble rather than working through conflict or challenges,’ she said.
And finally perpetually single people often don’t give potential partners a chance, she explained.
‘You make a snap decision and judgement without scratching the surface.’
Louanne said she wants to help stop bad dating habits with the video.
And it appeared to hit a nerve wit her followers who said they agreed with every point.
‘100 percent true,’ one woman said, clapping.
