Yes, she did give me some good advice, like to keep in touch with my father, and not lower my standards for dating and this is advice i have heard from other therapists as well.
However I am still concerned because I've always been told my standards are too high, and I think that might be the problem. Like I said, I never get approached by men (except maybe very creepy ones in bars but that is a rare occurence) and I'm afraid that I don't give off the impression that I am available. I don't know how to change this, I don't know how to flirt, and I am rarely attracted to guys when I first meet them anyway so I wouldn't feel comfortable with them approaching me. Maybe they pick up on this.
I just need some advice, how do I make myself more approachable? I don't want to be alone forever. All of my friends are married and starting families and I want that too.

I know this is rambling, but I'm having trouble expressing what I want to say. . . I hope it made sense.

Hello. I know that it has been a while but a lot has been going on with me. So in response to your most recent post I'd like to ask suggest to you to ask your closest, most honest, friends or family if you're an approachable person. Ask them if there is anyway you can make yourself more approachable without seeming too desperate. I mean i could tell you to smile more and dress nicer but that would be wrong on my part because I don't know how you really are in person. And about creepy men in bars, that's just a given. If you don't want to be approached by them then don't go to the bars. I'm sure there are plenty of creepy guys elsewhere. :)
