    I just read this article, it was really interesting. I recommend you read it and see which of the five categories you fall into. It could really open your eyes to why your still single.

    when i read it before I found out I fell into four of these categories, workaholic (school stuff), the shy guy which i can be with guys I like, the none of the above guy which I do sit back and let guys come to me instead of being out there, and the too-picky guy since I can be pretty picky although been trying to wean that back.

    The author missed one category: the psycho guy. The psycho guy may seem normal, affable, and authentic, but deep within that wholesome exterior is one hell of a fucked up dude. Do the names Joran van der Sloot and Philip Markoff ring a bell?

    A good read OP, thanks. Yet, I wish I was one of these guys. I try to fit myself in each category but events in my past warrant the categorization untrue for me. If it had to be one thing, it would be "too picky" but I was already in an ltr for many years, and believe me he was far from perfect, and ultimately his serious flaw of not being honest(a liar, if you will) broke up the relationship.

    IMHO, the 5th one is sort of the cop-out or loop hole.

    Srsly, I would consider anyone even halfway decent looking and a decent guy, if they could actually keep a dinner date and not flake out and cancel on the first, second, or third date.

    "Too picky" really means = "I have a lot of needs". Same thing with "I have high standards". I think I fall into that group so I can call it that way. It's easier to put the focus on the lack of selection when in truth we want a lot of things and we want them at the same time in the same person. So instead of having a mate that meets our major needs, we hold out for "the one" who will meet all of our needs AND understand how the needs change with our moods. Its just a lot to demand from one person. Which is why you need family/friends.

    As we get older, we're able to parse the "needs' from the "wants", and the "major needs" from the "needs".
