Interracial dating stats
I’m very good at talking to people, and those dates went reasonably well. I’m out almost every night of the week, at lectures, readings, arts events, classes, club meetings, and various social functions. I have a large circle of friends and acquaintances. And I *literally* can’t remember the last time a man I met in any way or setting asked me out. I found them to be polite and non-committal, as in, “That’d be great.
But blonde-haired, blue-eyed, and buxom though I am, a super model I’m not. I accept frequent invitations and meet their friends and friends of friends. I run a very social book group that meets in a bar. We should definitely do that some time.” Now I’m old and grumpy. I would kind of hope the man could show enough interest to actually approach me in some way, shape, or form.
But since this hasn’t happened in 42 years, what makes you think it’s gonna start now?
Listen, I don’t know you from Adam, which is why any advice I can give you is a bit scattershot.
Not surprisingly, now that my career as a dating coach is in order and my head is on straight, I’m more open to giving and receiving love. I couldn’t tell you, but I know there’s something there that you’re not seeing.
Read this post from a few months back and you’ll hear yourself, Lauren.
After all, there’s no special skill for getting married. It’s why I’ve never once worried about my qualifications to give dating advice.
I don’t suddenly get smarter if I propose to my girlfriend.
I’ve been in dire financial and career straits at other times.
They say they do, but they don’t really DO anything about pursuing love. This is the core metaphor driving my first book, and a guiding principle of my friend Rachel Greenwald’s book as well. Are you going to singles events – parties, trips, cruises – or at least doing activities that have single men in attendance? Have you signed up for a six-month subscription on a big dating site?
When we’re unemployed, we do everything in our power to find work. Are you taking online dating as seriously as you could be? Have you been searching for and initiating contact with men? Have you considered hiring a matchmaker or a dating coach?
…Despite the title of my second book, , being single is a fine state of affairs.
I’ve been that way for 35 years and frankly, I’m a little anxious about getting married.
