Having some trouble..Page 1 of 1    
What do you mean standards are very high? If you have high standards have you asked yourself why shouldn't these guys have high standards as well? If you want a tall, dark handsome man that is well educated, why shouldn't guys want a petite, sassy blonde?

Reality is that everyone has preferences and standards when it comes those they see as potential dates. If you have too many standards, then you may have answered your own question already as to why you may no be receiving a lot of dates.

In my opinion, I think you are young, and you should relax a bit more on your standards, but not too much.

The rest of your pics are not all that flattering and get rid of the pic with you holding a baby it will make guys think that you biological clock is a ticking time bomb.

I agree with Dino57---plus, that last picture makes your arms look big, and is not a flattering angle at all. I would also take out the part of being "extremely family-oriented". It reads that you're anxious to start having kids.
