SYDNEYSIDERS, you're too fussy, desperate and rude. You're turning dates into job interviews. Your "shopping list" is shallow, pedantic and wouldn't make you happy, even if it was realistic.
Women, you've forgotten how to flirt, and men, you need to man up. And you've all lost the art of romance.
That's the diagnosis of matchmakers as they survey the bloody battlefield of Sydney dating, where men, wary of gold-diggers, "sperm hunters" and "shopping list" writers, face off against the women they're supposed to be wooing, who are worn out by the deception, the harassment and the disrespect they've suffered from men.
In the 30- to 45-year-old age group, in which two-thirds of daters are searching for a long-term relationship that leads to marriage and children, the casualties are worst. Bars across Sydney are littered with broken hearts and suspicious minds.
"If you have lots of break-ups, they all take their toll," sex therapist Bettina Arndt says. "No one comes through unscathed."
But it doesn't have to be this way. A growing number of psychologists, matchmakers and sex therapists are turning into dating coaches, showing singles where they're going wrong and how to fix it.
One of the biggest problems on the Sydney dating scene is extreme fussiness, with daters more likely to be on the hunt for superficial attributes such as wealth, beauty and status than for qualities such as honesty, compassion and kindness, which would make a good partner and parent, say the matchmakers.
Another proof HA is right
wealth beauty n status...interesting 'game' isnt on the list
theres a little a men can do since it is women who control sex,
