Dating websites dont work
But what do you do when these apps and sites aren’t working for you?Here are the eight key reasons why this kind of dating isn’t going your way, and more importantly, what you can do to turn things around.1. When it comes to finding that special someone, it’s important to remember that dating is a numbers game.
Just because a close friend from high school or college met her significant other online, married him, and is expecting a baby with her now-husband doesn't mean your love story will unfold the same way.
One gentleman that comes to mind, whose occupation ironically was listed as "troublemaker," said he appreciates a date who "says thank you to the wait staff and leaves her phone in her purse." While I appreciate the sentiment, this and other profiles I often encountered felt like people were resentful of their past experiences rather than open to exploring the future.
It seemed like a lot of unnecessary negativity to be dealing with when I wanted to remain upbeat and hopeful about meeting someone great.
But I would rather spend my Monday nights out with my girlfriends than scrolling though someone's profile. Despite what people might say, online dating isn't for everyone and it's not going to be every single and thirty-something woman's fairytale.
If you haven't tried online dating, definitely give it a try with an open mind and a hopeful spirit.
Oh, and gentlemen, stay upbeat in your profiles rather than offering backhanded compliments to the opposite sex.
