Possibly Not Solved by Numbers

I’m not doing well at the internet dating thing.

By not doing well, I mean I’m on week 2, I’ve been on 2 dates and I haven’t found the love of my life. Actually, I haven’t found someone I want to see again. I’m also not doing well at getting guys to message me. Or respond to the messages I send.

If you know me in real life, you know that I have a particular approach to challenges.

Find the problem. Make sure that’s the problem. Fix the problem. Move on.

Ok. I don’t know what the problem is. Something strange in my bio? I got a few male friends to look at my bio. They thought it was fine (and they’ve done online dating, and I’d be happy to find someone like either of them). So, that’s not it.

I don’t have kids. Well, I can see that might be a thing. I’ve put a note in my bio that says I don’t have kids, but I do have 12 nieces and nephews, so I’m fine if they do.

I’m short. Ummm. Well, that’s not really something I can fix.

Wrong Photo? Ok, fine, let’s try another one.

It also occurs to me, this may not be a problem that numbers can solve.

    Sorry for replying very late, but this exact thing happened to my best friend, so I had to comment. She was puzzled, like you, so she looked at which profiles were popular and found it was the ones with photoshoot pictures of heavily made-up girls wearing skimpy clothes, which was surprising as it was a dating site for professionals run by a high-brow newspaper. She briefly considered following suit, but given that she doesn’t even wear make up, we all told her this would be pointless (not real). I can’t remember what happened next – she either persisted or switched to an even classier (for want of a better word) site and ended up with the love of her life. I can ask her to remind me of the end part of the story, if you’re interested. I do remember that she got so fed up at one point, she almost gave up. It’s certainly not easy. Good luck with it all.
