More of a rant more than anything. But hopefully there's someone who will relate

I'm not the best looking guy in the world but I feel like I've got so much to offer. I'm educated, ambitious, have a good job and decent salary. I'm passionate about music and set up my own events company this year. I have a solid set of values and morales.
I have relied far too heavily on dating sites in the past, even if it seems like the only way I've ever got a date. I'm out pretty much every weekend now, meeting people, putting myself out there and just hoping I can meet her. Every girl I speak to seems to be married or taken in these situations.

Some will say "stop looking and it'll come". Well I've waited 27 years. I'd have thought one of my friends could have set me up by now.

You just gotta stop being so desperate. If you seem desperate then it just turns people off generally, at least the good ones.

Using the services of a Matchmaking company might be an excellent solution for you.

Bearing in mind that you have the dosh for it and a lot of traits that are attractive in terms of retaining a partner.

Have you actually tried asking one of your friends to try and introduce you to a girl? Maybe one of their girlfriends will have a friend you might be compatible with. :dontknow:

I'm only 17 years old but I can assure you that waiting to find that person will be worth it. The majority of people are desperate for love at some point and if it means waiting years until you stumble into someone at a party or at the shop then it will be worth it, one hundred percent. You seem like a great guy that has many things to offer and you're still very young! 27 really isn't that old. Patience is the key and once you find that special someone you'll be glad you waited. Don't get too bothered if your friends have kids or are getting married, maybe they just got lucky or managed to get out there or maybe they've just been with that person since school. You'll figure it out one day. Just don't seem so desperate and remember that love is a dangerous tool so don't play any risky games with it. Good luck and I hope you find someone.

Perhaps try a singles holiday and join a voluntary organisation where you will meet like minded girls. Flirt widely with girls of all levels of attractiveness. Get some tips from able male and female friends. And keep going. And you're right internet dating is counter intuitively rubbish. Lots of frustration and bad dates. I gave up on this.

I created my own music promotions buisness. That helps me get out the house and meet people. Who knows, maybe that's the way forward.
Online dating has worked for me. But it's only a tool. I can't be too dependant

Focus on what sort of relationship and girl you are looking for.
That way you will have a clearer idea of what you want and will be able to look in the most suitable places to match your criteria.
Set your dealbreakers and three things that you absolutely do not like.
Once you focus on the type of girl that you want to be in a relationship with, you will have more of an idea what you are looking for and where to find her.

What sort of girl do you want?
Any physical type- tall/short, hair colour, build, freckles.
Any particular shared hobbies or interests- music, sporty, art, baking, animal rescue.
Personality- outgoing, shy, flirty, sense of humour, adventurous or more serious.
Politics or religion- would you consider dating a girl who goes to church/temple every week, or a supporter of momentum/nigel farage.
Diet- a vegan, vegetarian or obsessive healthy eater.
Personal, educational or career ambitions.

Diet- a vegan, vegetarian or obsessive healthy eater.
Personal, educational or career ambitions.
Physical: shorter than me (5"9), curvy/little extra.
Interests: I've always liked the nerdier/geeky girls, or the creative types. To be honest I couldn't imagine being with someone who didn't love music as much as me. It's a huge part of my life. There's other interests though.
Personality: maybe a bit more out going, outdoorsy. Not too sure about it this. I've dated quiet girls .I didn't like it .

Religion: agnostic or atheist. Ideally left wing politically.

I find ambition and education so attractive.

Deal-breaker. A woman with children could be tricky but it could work. A girl who wants to go travelling for months at a time really doesn't appeal to me .
