I speak from personal experience when I mention that I have broken up with some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. She had everything on my checklist — smart, silly, cute, good family, stable job, etc.
What she didn’t have — what I really needed at the time — was a backbone.
Online dating is extremely popular among American singles seeking connections.
Striking up a conversation with a stranger can be awkward and even embarrassing, reducing your chances for success.
With online dating, you can browse the personal profiles of potential partners with no pressure or forced interactions.
A little history…I’m 28, divorced with two young kids, they live at home. He’s relatively attractive but not my usual type or taste. When there’s a rare exception to that rule, we call it love.
He is 37, divorced with one teenage kid that he sees every other weekend. I can’t figure out if I’m attracted to him or the fact that he’s a good guy. Calls, writes me letters, texts, takes me out, does family outings, asks about my day, washes my car, is clean, is fit, responsible, understanding, compliments me, etc, etc. We don’t get too much opportunity to spend alone time so we’ve only slept with each other twice. He’s completely fallen for me, thinks I’m strong, independent, beautiful, good mom, etc. Then the dilemma becomes do I let this great guy go and regret it afterward? As I see it, you’re asking a few separate questions here. You may be confounding to men, but you’re definitely not crazy and definitely not wrong…. We can break it down to its elemental components, but that thing that you feel, which draws you to a man? No more than the base attraction a man has to a woman when he sees her across a crowded room.
