Can there be anyone out there who wants more than a short-term relationship?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Guys who want long term relationships get into relationships. The dating field gets picked over. Guys who want one night stands go out canvassing, talking to as many women as possible.

This may be speculation, but I think this is one of the problems with older women waiting for guys to come to them. The guys who are most likely to come to you if you do nothing are the players.

One thing that works well for me (though guys don't need it nearly as much) is to focus on some common intellectual interest. If someone else is also interested in, say, natural medicine then there's an actual connection there, as opposed to some girl looking for "a guy, any guy, to fill her lonely nights" etc.

I have never had anything but long term relationships. Short term ones must suck getting to know someone is a real drag
