Totally changed my dating life. I approach new dates with curiousity and excitement, not dread. The way you are now, you set up self-fulfilling prophecies. Create something new and better.
I understand what you're saying FitChick, but I think you're misunderstanding me. I know I'm good enough and very lovable, etc. The man I end up with will be a lucky SOB. I'm cute, sociable, career driven, healthy, very sexual and passionate, and very faithful I just expect the same or very similar.These Online Daters Meeting IRL is Adorably Awkward
The first sign that he doesn't live up to what I'm looking for in a man and I can't ignore it like I used to. It's like an alarm goes off and the only way to shut it off is to cancel the date and hope like hell he doesn't try to change my mind. I haven't used the Lefkoe method specifically but I think in this case you need to sit down and examine your anxiety and the beliefs and emotions behind it.

And then let the limiting beliefs go. Yes easier said than done but try the Lefkoe method or any other method of self-examination to acknowledge the limiting beliefs and finally let them go.
Thanks OliveOyl love that username btw! Again, I think both of you and betterdeal, are reading too much into what I shared, otherwise I'm missing something.
I'm open to it, and don't think I'm in denial! I just think I've been meeting the wrong men and my tolerance has expired. Slightest possible red flags don't worry me. But I think right now I'm too depressed and anxious to actually date. Rather than saying "someone who wants kids", get granular. Say that you want someone who wants two kids, about three years apart and is willing to go through fertility treatments with you should pregnancy become a problem.
Part of making your list is defining what you want. Keep score Once you've thought of all the traits you want in a mate, prioritise them. Think about the characteristics in the context of previous relationships, your friends and your family. Develop a scoring system.
Decide the lowest number of points you'll accept in order to go out on a date with someone. This is basically developing a handcrafted algorithm, just for yourself. Get online Pick a few websites to use. People who use Tinder tend not to be looking for long-term relationships.
It's OK to use two or three sites at a time. Bear in mind that you'll want most of the features activated, and that some sites can be expensive. Go shopping For the most part, dating sites aren't doing anything particularly mysterious. Sites mostly create taxonomies and match users based on their answers. In some cases, sites look at the gap between users' answers and their behaviours.

For example, you might say that you prefer a very tall man with dark hair who is religious, but mainly click on profiles for shorter atheists. The algorithm in that case would try to match you according to your behaviour. But maybe you're clicking on all of the profiles, even those that don't match your preferences, or sitting next to your sister, and she's also looking for a boyfriend — one who's short and blond.
In that case, the algorithm won't work either. It's best to treat dating sites as giant databases for you to explore. Keep your profile short Long profiles typically didn't fare well in my experiment. I think that for thoughtful women, or women who are quite smart, there's a tendency to give more of a bio.

Popular profiles were shorter and intriguing. Create a curiosity gap Ever wondered why Upworthy and Buzzfeed are so popular? It's because they're masters of the "curiosity gap". They offer just enough information to pique interest, which is exactly what you'd do when meeting someone in person for the first time. Don't try to be funny Most people aren't funny — at all — in print. What you say to your friends at the pub after a few pints may get a lot of laughs, but that doesn't necessarily mean it'll translate on a dating site.
The same goes for sarcasm.
