Name the number one thing keeping you single..Page 28 of 32    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32)
MONEY.... and the lack of having any extra.

I may get whipped good for stating this here, but I find that women in and around Ottawa (since most of them work for the federal government and have wicked cushy jobs), are looking for someone who more of it than they do. To pay for dinner, the movie, the parking, the drinks, etc...

So for me it's money, and not being able to meet someone so materialistic.

While I have been on some dates with women I have talked to on here, I think it's more the lack of interest from those I have dated when it comes to a serious relationship. Let's face it, I am not getting any younger and I want to get married before I am 30, but it seems women my age generally are not interested in long term relationships. People always say to me "don't be in a rush to get tied down", well I respectfully disagree with that because once you get to 25 or so, it's expected that you should be ready to settle down. My parents got married at 25, and I was born when my parents were both 26, besides my hair tells me I am not getting any younger as it slowly starts to go grey.

I'm self-sustaining but I'm not established. I mean I work but don't have a career. I have savings and investments but I don't own property. I'm sure that doesn't prevent me from dating but it prevents me from committing to someone.

i agree with your list.
fear of being hurt again is probably a top issue for a lot of women. we all have to get hurt in order to know that the one we are with is worth it unfortunately.

Is there ever only one reason why a person remains single?? Personally, I do not think so. Every individual has his or her own life, made up of so many different things - think experiences, parentage, schooling, and so on - combined with that interesting thing called luck. As one gets older, one usually gets wiser... and consequently more difficult to please.

I do know that at my age, I now have more to lose than when I was younger - in so many different ways > not just money.

AND... after seeing my brother marry a person with bi-polar symptoms, I sure am glad I live on my own.

It'd be nice to have a good relationship again.
But having a bad relationship just to have one.... no thanks
I looking for something complementary not detrimental.
I have everything else I need so life's good. Why screw it up?

I'm a metal head and a bit overweight. Most people on here are into the gym and healthy foods and if they see someone like me, they immediately move on.

I'm not particularly attractive and I'm fairly picky in general. A really bad mix.

I'd say that being an introvert has to be one of the worst things for dating. I don't lack confidence, however I find that women I don't know well throw me way out of my comfort zone. Being picky about women that I want to date doesn't help either, coupled with the fact that I am sure women don't find me all that attractive unless they themselves are unattractive, based on my current experiences with online dating.

I agree completely with what you said about being an introvert when it comes to dating. I am a very quiet person and it takes me a while to get comfortable around people. Cause of that, a lot of women don't have patience for me.

Can anyone lend me $20 to go on a date??

Oh boy, well here goes ....

I've been shy, introverted, lack confidence, inexperienced, under average height, a bit overweight, middle-aged, childless, never married, and sometimes depressed because of it all.

Most women that find me attractive, I don't find them attractive. Not a good combination.

My small town and vicinities are full of uneducated haggard looking old maids. Women my own age in my area seem to be very flaky and dim witted. Sorry to say so frankly. And the younger, smart professionals are all taken!

Time/shy/socally akward.

I work full time in a Kitchen, and at the end of the day all I want to do is sleep and shower and eat in no order. Not go to the club because I have to get up early. Also being behind the line gives me little to no time to socalise. I simply don't have the time or way to meet people.

Fear. It's so hard when it doesn't work out...whether you or they are "not feeling it".

introverted - i like my space and gather energy from alone-time. Also, I like being at home and make excuses not to go out - not going out isn't very conducive to meeting people :)

The number one thing keeping me single is that I don't get the opportunity to meet a lot of women.

The number one thing that keeps me single is shyness... I've been burned too many times and used too many times that i'm leery to make the first contact and sadly it's the norm for Men to make first contact.

Not that I can blame women, they should be chased and interest should be shown in them, not to mention most that I talk to have so many men messaging on a daily basis they don't have time to pursue or search on their own.
