Sometimes I wonder. I haven’t had a date since before Thanksgiving. I’m still signed up on two online dating sites, and I check the profiles daily. But I seem to have a problem with each woman. Too old. Too heavy. Too many kids. Lives too far away. Doesn’t seem very smart. Know what I mean?
I met a woman recently who said she’d been taking a “dating sabbatical.” Hmmm. I don’t think I’ve ever heard that term, but it’s a great concept. Sometimes you just need to take a break and reboot your dating life.
It’s tricky business to create an effective online dating profile. It’s a sales pitch, basically. You’re trying to use the proper words and images to attract a woman.
You’ve heard of exit interviews at work. When you leave a job, you sit down with someone in human resources and say what you liked – and didn’t like – about the job. Some relationship experts recommend the same idea after you’ve been dumped in dating.
I’m not talking about a friend to give you a pep talk and some off-the-cuff advice. No, I’m talking about hiring someone to explain why you’re a dating loser. Until recently, I’d never heard of dating coaches. Turns out, they’re all over.
Don’t you wish it were so easy? It’s not – you know that, I know that, everyone knows that. Yet we’re still suckers for books that promise to unlock the secret to everlasting love. They’re like get-rich books – irresistible.
