Woman is looking for love in all the wrong places
Dear Amy: I'm a 28-year-old woman who has been trying to find love for her entire life, but no luck!
I've been trying online dating for the past few years, but I always get dumped -- or the guy tells me that he doesn't want a relationship.
My last heartbreak was a guy four years younger, telling me he didn't want anything serious or long term.
I'm up against the wall!
The guys on online sites seem weird. I feel like no one decent talks to me on these sites.
I have no one asking me out offline, either, and I'm concerned because I just hate being single.
Why can everyone else find someone -- but not me?
-- Lonely woman
Dear Lonely: I'd like to point you toward a few course corrections:
First of all, you are not the only person in the world without a partner. Some of the personal factors that make you feel lonely now -- your insecurity, desperation and habit of blaming others -- will still be present after you've met someone. And potential matches can detect your desperation and negativity a mile away.
