Dear Secret Romantic:
The face we present to the world is often the face that we think the world wants to see. If you are, as you say, a true romantic on the inside, the kind of guy who wants a forever relationship with a woman, then why does everyone think you’re a shallow player? Take a hard look in the mirror, and consider the way you treat the women in your life. There is likely a lot of work that you can do on yourself, and the way you treat people, that will help you make a better impression.
You say that you are handsome, talented, and knowledgeable. Do you tell everyone that you have these traits? Are you a braggart who flaunts what he considers his best qualities instead of letting people figure them out for themselves? Maybe you come off as shallow because you do present a shallow, skin-deep personality to the women you meet.
Are you only looking for one type of woman? For example, does your ideal girlfriend have a certain look or bodily proportions, attitude or personality? Do you try to mold the women you meet into this ideal? Most women (and men!) are put off by potential partners who want them to change who they are to meet a standard they don’t want to meet.
Take a look at yourself, the way you present to others, and what you expect from them. You will find the answer that you’re looking for, even if it might hurt to be so honest with yourself. Good luck in finding the girl for you! Expert answer - Find more experts: click here!
