just say everything you are not, and say cool and totally alot!
I'm around the same age and I also stayed with the same woman for 7 years. I truly thought the relationship would lead to marriage so when it ended instead I was pretty bummed. I have tried a couple dating sites before and live in a pretty populated area but I never had more than a first date with anyone. I would say to message more people but even if you get them to respond they usually lie about themselves and show up looking like a monster. That can be even more disheartening especially in a public place. I had this one girl show up all acne scarred and overweight, she was like "I saw you through the window, you look exactly like your picture!" Needless to say, I changed the subject. After she ran up a $100+ tab she was like "I had a great time, lets do this again" and gave me an assout hug. The nerve of this creature, can you believe she wasn't even trying to put out after that, YUCK! I would say, don't take it personal, get out and meet people in real life, and wait patiently for another good thing to come your way.
Youre not ugly at all from your picture but on the dating website, don't wear sunglasses in the pic because girls like me will wonder what you're trying to hide. <br />
What does your profile say about you? Maybe us ladies can give you some pointers/help
maybe you're at the wrong dating sites. Some datings sites women don't take seriously because they are known to have men only wanting one thing.
I don't think it's your height
Don't get creepy, don't get too personal, don't include weird hobbies that only a few select girls might be interested in (unless that's what you're trying to find).
What are you saying in the message… that would be an important part of this…
