Woman Has 136 Online Dates, No Second Date

(Newser) – An Australian school teacher says she's had 136 dates over 17 months but never a second date—because the mutual attraction just isn't there, E! News reports. "I know who I am and what I want and I just can't find a man who is worthy of my time and attention," says 35-year-old Belinda Stuckey. "Now that is not meant to sound aggressive. It is more about being confident in who I am and knowing myself." After a four-year relationship, Stuckey says she joined eHarmony and became one of its most popular members, matching with 4,700 men since 2013. But either they don't call her after dates, the Mirror reports, or she's just not interested.

"I have found that men here are becoming more and more feminine not just in looks, but in demeanor too," she says. "I need and want a man's man. Someone who can make a decision at least!" Either that, she says, or they just want to fool around: "They are more concerned about finding someone to sleep with than someone to get to know and love. What has happened to society?" she asks. "In Sydney at least." But she seems to be keeping a positive attitude, concluding that "rejection is inevitable and think of each date as a new experience and a learning tool." (Meanwhile, we seem to really love going to chain restaurants on first dates.)
