I used to wonder why...
As a working single gal who also tries to find time to write, I admit to joining the occasional dating site. My stays on these sites have been short and for the most part, unproductive. Why? It's Complicated.
It seems most men find me "intimidating!" Those who know me would call me anything but, as a matter of fact I tend to be shy. After hearing this many times from different males, I summoned the courage to ask WHAT exactly was intimidating. Most chose not to answer and slipped back into the ether never to be heard from again but a few brave souls said it was my writing!
I was flabbergasted!!! Even more so when I found most of them had never read my books. Is it the fact I write?...
Is it the romance?... Are they worried they might not live up to my idea of romance? Who the hell knows? They sure aren't saying!
Well...except one. He said "you're smarter than I thought you'd be."
Really. No kidding!
Is this the reason my friends relationships are COMPLICATED? If I had one, I'd let you know. LOL
May your relationships be easy!
