Why is dating in this city / province so difficult?!
There are lots of mid 30's single people filling up the "dating scene" or lack there of in Halifax but for some reason none of the actually want to meet. I talk to girls and most complain about how it's difficult for them to find a nice guy who's not into games and isn't scare of actually meeting. Yet most of what I have encountered as a single guy for the last maybe 5 years of being single is exactly that from women here?! Most don't want to meet at all.
They mostly play games with email tag and endless emails. When I mention meeting for coffee or drinks or whatever the case may be, they drop off the face of the earth. Most recently, one actually chose to go exclusive with someone long distance who doesn't live in the province and establish an online / virtual relationship!
I have a hard time accepting that is normal!
Most of my friends think I'm a great catch. I have my own place, car, you name it really. I travel yearly and we're not talking to Cuba or Mexico. Last summer I was in the middle east, Maldives and Budapest! I'm not Mr. Universe, but I'm not hideous either! I've been told that I'm handsome. I'm fit and keep active yet it's so difficult to actually meet women here! I met a few throughout the last couple of years, none of which actually live here! Somehow they were the friendliest I've met. I will not believe that men are the problem when it comes to dating!
Is anyone else having this issue?!
I don't want to have kids and I thought that might present a problem, except I actually came across a lot of women who are on that same boat! Yet after interacting, sometimes even for a month or more, they refuse to meet! Why are you wasting people's time if that's the case?
If a woman could possibly shine some light on this situation, I would appreciate some advice! —Conventional Dating
