It just takes some time, I think. I must have went on a million dates and was in a very str for a couple months with a man a couple of years older than myself. He was much about himself and that would never work.

What I ended up doing is stepping outside the box and going out on a date with a man who was not at all what I was looking for, nearly nothing about him was what I was looking for and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Now I am happy in love with him....

Actually, I am already married..so clearly I must be one of the good ones since I am already taken...lol..

And you are damn right that I would do a background check before I even consider dating someone exclusively...why do you think you see those stories on the Tru Network TV shows titled, "I Married an Ax Murderer!" or "Who the Bleep did I marry??!". You really think a smart woman is going to shack up with you not having ANY idea about what you do for a living????? I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you, dude.

For about 70% of men out there this is terrible advice. How low can they go?

You are a very rare woman, now days. Most women who even contemplate this are nearly 40 or older and usually get cold feet, even then. Of course, their chances are then slim to none.

If women find a guy who's devoted to them , is stable, caring, all that good stuff, they'll grab him.
I am 32 and currently dating a 24 yo girl about to take her bar exam. At first, I thought my lack of a college degree would hinder her interest in me, but that has not been the case. She is interested in the fact that I am a hard worker, have started my own biz and also work for an intelligence agency. I also make good money. In my case, experience has trumped education in my field and she knows that. But, most importantly, as stated by the poster above me, at the end of the day, I am stable, caring, a nice guy, and very old fashioned. I am the rock she needs.

Now, let's just hope it lasts....lol.

Good for you! Honestly, I think this is more common than people think.
