I have sat opposite single women, asking me questions about how to attract men online, and in the back of my mind, realised I know exactly why they are still single. But when you sit having dinner with someone, and their knuckles are almost white with the stress of needing to find the one, so they can start the mid-life conveyor-belt of mortgages, marriage and babies turning, even I, as another woman, can understand how a man might be put off. And they’ve let it take over their every waking thought.
The hottest guy in the room, surrounded by a sea of women, literally waiting to ‘have their turn’ to chat to him. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a vivid depiction of what it is like to date in London! the world can feel like your oyster, and like effort is unnecessary. Meanwhile, as a single woman, you have a queue of competitors, each more desperate and decided than the next … Whatever the cause, it’s an unfortunate reality of single London-living.
