The real reason love is eluding you outside the virtual world.
If you've been trying to find a relationship online and you’re not getting the results you want, read on, dear fellow. Perhaps you're making social faux pas without even knowing it.
All of this advice has been collected through my own personal experience of being a woman looking for a relationship online, and by talking with other women like me. Of course, some women may disagree with me. I'd love to hear from readers in the comments section whether they have made the same observations that I have.
Let's start with the fact that your profile looks more like a laundry list than an essay. You've listed facts and given me nothing emotional or even personal to hang my hat on.
