"I'm not looking for a boyfriend." "I don't have time for a boyfriend." "Guys just get in the way." Yes, the writing is on the wall and it's obvious that they don't want to date (me). But I have to ask, what prompts this for you ladies? What has been some of your experiences in the past with men that made you believe in the present that dating would only hinder your other goals and aspirations? What have we done? Are we too needy/clingy/possessive? Is dinner, a movie and a kiss (and a full body massage if you play your cards right) really gonna hold you back from becoming a professional nutritionist? Please and thank you.
