I encourage you to share your stories with me, cast a much wider net and accept a date with someone you wouldn't normally go out with, and be open to the possibilities of having someone new enhance your life.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Whether it’s a defense mechanism to avoid dating someone or simply a strict code of what one wants, realistic or not, it can happen.
Personally, I have lived by the mantra that my vagina has an education minimum and a no white socks or god policy.
Realistically, while I personally believe that your religious views, or lack there of, should align, the fact that I have long refused to date men who wear white socks might be a bit limiting.
We won't be able to tell if one gender is really more selective until we get rid of the sexist mechanics of the current dating scene.
Your friends and family have complained that you're just too picky when you've declined yet another opportunity to be set up on a date. Surely, there must be someone she should be willing to date, I though to myself. In a one-month period, she finally agreed to go on only two dates.
Her relationships always run their course and she won't jump out of her comfort zone. When I started writing my book earlier this year, both men and women came forward to share their stories.
Until she tries a new flavor, or as I like to say, a different color in the Crayola crayon box, her pattern will continue and she'll end up alone with a series of heartbreaks. I truly believe that we all want to love and be loved and that this overanalyzing and pickiness has become an epidemic, at least on the west side of Los Angeles, if not everywhere. Also i have noticed that many of the profiles are poorly written or very demanding, Many of them having things like "Don't even bother messaging me if..." or "I don't care if you.....".I guess i am just trying to figure out how things work on this site, The more i know the more success i can probably have."I have had a good success rate with girls in real life, some that i would consider very attractive, However it seems that the expectations of girls on this site are on a whole different level, I would like to assume that a good amount of the girls that have ignored me on this site probably wouldn't if i approached them in real life."Assuming that's TRUE, (which I don't) it begs the question why would you waste ANY time being here? Settle down, one questions at a time.....you want to know how this works either read a ton of forums or go buy a self help book about online dating. Seems to me like your reply was a waste of time and provided zero contributions to the thread, I only asked 2 questions but i guess you were too busy finding something to argue about.When your list of deal breakers is larger than your list of friends, there's a problem.When Lori Gottlieb wrote her book, , she encouraged women not to settle, but to look at their lists and shorten them to be in sync with reality.Therefore it seems like women are more selective because they are forced to actively reject men while men simply passively reject women by not asking them out.
