I had a date with one man who, in a flurry of perfectly crafted emails, had seemed so right for me, I even agreed – sight almost unseen – to spend the day with him at Lord’s cricket ground.
I must have been insane (Lesson No 1: never arrange to meet for longer than a coffee). I didn’t find him at all attractive in the flesh – nasal hair, nasal voice banging on about himself and his terrible divorce – and the feeling was clearly mutual.
This question could reflect nothing more than curiosity.
But many use the answer as a way to weed out potential dates.
So what’s the thing about dating that bothers you most? All the good ones are taken…check this out: If you live anywhere near a major metro area, and are looking for a man over 40, 5’8” or taller, college educated, non-smoking, making a higher than median income…statistics say that there are over 2000 of these guys within 20 miles of you looking for love online. As long as you let yourself believe that your lack of connection with a good man is about T-H-E-M…then you don’t have to take responsibility. DO NOT tell me that in the first 10 minutes of meeting a man you can know that he is a potential suitor or life partner. Quick judgments are often more about you than the man sitting in front of you.
