Why Do Professional Women Struggle with Online Dating?

Posted by:

Do single men really want the company of an educated and professional woman? While there is a certain novelty for a man to brag about being involved with an attorney, a nurse, a paralegal, or with a woman that holds a degree, it is dangerous grounds for the ego of some men. If you’re too smart, you are looked at with disdain. You’re obnoxious. You’re conceited. You think you know it all. It simply ...

Online Dating: When They Stopped Responding to Emails

Posted by:

In online dating, you’ll sometimes be in an email conversation with a new person and things seem to be going great. Often there seems to be a strong connection and the conversation couldn’t flow better. Then, unexpectedly the person you are emailing stops responding. You might then think, “What did I do wrong? Why aren’t they emailing me anymore?”

This topic, where someone stops responding to your emails, is one that I’ve covered here before. However, it’s one of the areas ...

Too Much Emphasis on Kids in Your Dating Profile?

Posted by:

As a new-ish dad (my son is now 15 months old) I can say that having kids is absolutely wonderful. Exhausting but wonderful. And if you’re like me, you may find your kids becoming your go-to topic for conversations. Which is okay in most cases (as long as we’re not driving people crazy).

However, I’ve helped with some dating profiles recently and I’ve seen people put a bit too much emphasis on being dad or mom and not so much ...

The way Match.com works can sometimes create confusion for subscribers. In this case, a woman receives a wink from a man and she’s interested so she emails him back…then he doesn’t respond! What’s up with that? Here’s an example from a reader:

Dating Someone when the “One that Got Away” Comes Back

Posted by:

Many months ago, I worked with a reader on a struggle he was having with a woman he was talking to. As much as he worked to gain her interest, she never fully returned it. She would go on dates or communicate, then disappear. Or she would seem interested only apparently lose that interest in him a week later. Eventually she stopped responding and while hurt, he did get over her.

I talked about this type of situation in my ...

When Someone You Want to Date Repeatedly Loses Interest

Posted by:

Many of us have been in this situation: you start to talk with someone and may even begin to date, but then they disappear. No more calls or texts and no explanation on where they went. Then out of the blue, they contact you again as if everything is fine and the cycle repeats itself.

I’ve seen people give up all other opportunities just to repeatedly wait on someone who isn’t fully committing and I want to talk about that here.

Are ...
