Want to avoid the disappointments and aggravation of online dating? Pick the wrong ones and you'll waste time and energy, occasionally suffering wipe-outs that can leave you dazed, distracted and dispirited when the right man or wave comes along.

Here's why: If you've ever wondered why dating felt like you were driving with one foot on the brake and one foot on the gas or you're wondering why you're not meeting great guys to spend time with, I'd like to share something with you.

You may even have one of them on your call list for those late, lonely nights when you can't help yourself but send that 'you up? If it's a priority to you, then I think dating someone as activity and fitness minded as yourself has the more likely potential to lead to a successful long-term relationship than otherwise.

My short term goals were about meeting new and interesting men and I wanted to have fun dating.

My long term goal was about being in a committed relationship. I have seen over and over again how important it is to stay focused on what you want when it comes to making your dreams of finding love after 50 come true.

Believe me, it's easy to start thinking about what you don't want versus what you do. After all, one of the nicest things about being in a relationship is the fact that some things are reserved for two, just like the best table in a romantic restaurant. In case you didn't know, your message screams insecurity.

Your form of coping seems to be putting others down. Because it's 2016 and let's face it, you've got a better chance of giving a guy a handjob in the back of a taxi after a shitty night of dim sum than you do a peck on the cheek after an ice cream social, it's time to rewrite the rules of dating for this generation.

In all of my conversations with friends about their dating lives, one thing has become abundantly clear; men make us crazy.

Women who are bright, independent people, unperturbed by work place challenges and who relish the intrigue of most of life's curveballs, are reduced to crazy women when a man with whom they are enamored comes into the picture.
