We’ve all heard the expression ‘working at your relationship’, or ‘working at your marriage’, but if you spend the vast majority of your time working at work then where will you find the energy, head-space and the time required to be just as successful in matter of the heart?
Dating profiles are, by their nature, quite restrictive. You are often forced to reduce your life down to the ticking of a few boxes and the odd free-text opportunity to sell yourself. One suggestion is that you carefully avoid adding preferences for any prospective dating match that you cannot uphold yourself.
Just because a single woman is using a dating website, it absolutely does not mean she is so desperate as to not filter her messages and respond selectively.
Women get many multiples the rate of messages men get on dating site and is she hasn’t responded to you after you have extended her your patience and waited a reasonable amount of time, maybe you should just accept that she’s just not that into you and move on.
Are you suffering from dating fatigue? Maybe you’re jaded from the dating scene and have that feeling that you’re simply not getting anywhere? We can tell you, you are not alone and while the remedy is to remain positive and be patient, it can also help to know that there’s nothing particularly ‘undateable’ about you. The very many numbers of single people just like you bear that out.
We can’t always be Wildean and beautifully lyrical in our conversations, but if you find yourself reaching for an expletive, where a more civilised adjective or noun would do better, then expect your dating prospects to go as badly as your language.
Does it sound like you, or someone you know? Tell us your story in the comments, expletive-free, of course!
