Dear Dr Hedda – Online Dating is Making Me Lose Hope!

Posted on Jul 16 2013 - 7:17am by Dr Hedda Mae

Dear Dr Hedda:
I’m in my late twenties and work at home.  I do well and enjoy my work.
But you don’t meet any men in your at-home office.  I’m lonely. So I decided to try some dating services.  More expensive than I thought but what choice did I have.
I signed up at two different services.  Over that past year I have had about 20 dates.  All first dates only, no phone calls, no flowers. I’ve been meeting the strangest men I ever met.  They come right out and discuss their sexual likes and dislikes.. No smoke and mirrors here. I hoped we would discuss world views, future plans and hopes, look for areas of mutuality but no… they wanted to know how I felt about threesomes and group sex and how did I feel about leather.  They were all so different than their  profiles.
Well dating services don’t work for me.  What do I try next?

Dear Home Office
I’m confused too.You did read tier profiles an speak with them before you agreed to a meeting.  One thing for sure, you sure can pick them.
You need to review your profile much more  carefully.  Look at the kind of men that are being attracted to you.
I suggest you make a list of the ten most important qualities that your  man has to have.  Make sure each item on the list is inflexible.  For example – No financially dependent children  or not paying alimony or needs to be a college graduate.
If you are asked out by a man that doesn’t meet your list say No.  Don’t waste your time of the wrong men.
On the positive side you must be loveable,  20 men asked you out.
Dr. Hedda
