I am in my first month of membership with Parship, but I have tried several other online dating sites previously.I am 30 years old, well-educated, well spoken, and I am told by both male and female friends that I am good company.I have had several long term relationships and, if one were to judge the number of contacts made and dates gone on, then I've been rather "successful" with the internet dating.I am an American that has lived and worked in London for just over four years as a literary agent.In the US I was very successful with men, but here it seems that though I have long dates that go on for hours with laughter, interesting conversation, and sometimes even a kiss, the men never want to see me again!The problem is that I never seem - at least in Britain - to be able to get past the first date!I am not the only American woman that has the problem, as several of my fellow countrywomen complain of the same thing with the lovely men of these shores. I am not aggressive or pushy or shy or any of the stereotypical things that would turn a man off.Back home a date that stretched on - by the man's own suggestion, not mine - from drinks, to dinner, to after dinner coffee, with conversation throughout - and then possibly even a good-night kiss would mean he was interested in at least getting to know the woman better! It seems that I can engage in good conversation and emails, even telephone conversations prior to the dates ...
I am 5'3" tall with long dark hair and a size 12 - just as pretty and about the same size as most women walking around London. That is the only thing that is starting to make sense, which is of course not helping with the confidence issues developing from all of these first-date only experiences.I'm complimented regularly on my fashion sense and dress well, sexy but not revealing. I am hoping that Parship will be different, given the Personality Profile Test and it's matching capabilities.Thus far I have had 2 "First Date Wonder" experiences with Parship and tonight I have a date scheduled that I am rather hopeful about... Any advice that you could offer would be much appreciated.Sincerely, Jenny I don't think your appearance is the issue at all.
You may not be everyone's type but you are certainly pretty enough for plenty of people to fancy you. Dating is something very new to Britain which has come about mainly as a result of internet dating.
Before that, hardly anyone went on dates, or if they did, it was just the one date, which changed a relationship from a friendship to a romantic one.
