Week 1 Problem.

Q I’m finding it difficult to meet anyone and have been single for almost three years now.  I’ve decided to try internet dating but I’m not sure what to use as my profile picture and what to say on my profile.  Should I use a sexy pic or just a regular picture?  Also should I mention that I love to party and that I’m looking for a long-term boyfriend?

A  Honestly is the best policy.  If you are going to meet your potential partner they it’s best they know what you like and dislike.  Post a flattering pretty picture rather than one of you all dressed up for a wedding, when that’s not how you look every day.  Best not to mention the long-term boyfriend hunt as it may scare them off but make it clear you are not interested in one night stands.  Stand by those rules to ensure your online dating is a success.


Week 2 Problem.

Q I met a really nice lady online dating.  We chatted over the phone a few times before we decided to meet.  She lives in Dublin and I live in Mayo.  So far we have had two dates, the first I came up to Dublin for the day and the second date we meet half way in Kildare.   She really is a lovely person and we got on really well on both occasions but I just don’t feel that spark.  I don’t want t hurt her feeling and it’s not like a long-term break up but I just want to be as decent as possible about it. 

A As I said in last week’s problem ‘Honestly is the best policy’.  You seem like a fairly decent bloke not wanting to be stringing her along and let’s face it, how much are you spending on diesel – we are in a recession after all! Not that cost would even be a factor if you thought she could be ‘the one’.  Tell her the truth, gently tell her you think she’s lovely and you’ve enjoyed spending time with her but you don’t want to waste each other’s time, as you don’t think it could go any further.  She will respect you more for being truthful.
