Angelo told me when he meets a woman like this, he does his best to keep the date short, so he doesn't have be dragged down by her poor emotional state. Can you blame him?

From your profile, first email and first date, you are being sized up, just as you are sizing up the men too. My advice as a dating coach is to put your best foot forward. In other words: Do not share stories about your ex, your job or dating if they are negative and you feel angry about them.
Its time to do something about your anger. You are completely entitled to your emotions and I'm not here to negate them at all. However, if you want to attract a good man, you'll need to dissipate some of that anger first so you aren't a turn off. Here are a few ways to do this:
- Talk to your friends
- Take a hot bath
- Try therapy
There are plenty of ways to release anger. Look into what you can do and what works best for you. But above all, become more aware of how you present yourself to men so that you can keep from showing up as "that angry woman." How To Become A Date Whisperer
