The £12,000 dating agency that broke my heart: It only had 100 men, didnít find her a [tr]

For a hugely bright private wealth consultant who has racked up goodness knows how many millions of pounds for her well-heeled clients over the years, Tereza Burki knows she’s been pretty daft. ‘When you’re advising a client to invest in something, you exercise due diligence, go to Companies House, make checks, do your research — but in matters of the heart...’ She shakes her head. ‘You want to believe you can have the Cinderella story, the happy ever after, and meet Mr Perfect who ticks all the boxes: financially secure, handsome, sense of humour, intelligent, adventurous and wants children. ‘And someone promises you can have that eternal happiness if you just pay whatever and sign here — you don’t read the small print or exercise the due diligence you would for a client, as you want to believe. I had a gut feeling telling me: “Don’t do it.” Why didn’t I listen?’

meet Mr Perfect who ticks all the boxes: financially secure, handsome, sense of humour, intelligent, adventurous and wants children.

She is attractive for her age but no man meeting her criteria is going to marry a twice married with 3 kids 42 year old. Men like that will go for a younger model who is not rapidly depreciating.

True. She isn’t attractive enough, been around, and 7 years into geriatric pregnancy.

She herself may be aiming too high, but I think the real issue here is that the dating service was claiming that they had something that they did not have, which was a sufficient pool of eligible people looking to date.

I rather doubt there a many mid-forties males who would look forward to becoming a father.

She was looking for a wealthy man.
Wealthy men aren’t usually looking for wealthy older women.

Problem is, she would not want you doing the hitting.

Her problem is she is not interested in any man who might be interested in her.

There are quite a lot of mid-forties and older men who would like to be a father.

I am, er, quite a bit past my-mid forties, and with grown children, but I would love to be a father again.

Mom here ... I think she needs to figure out what she really likes to do for fun and get involved. It’s a win-win. She has fun on her own, meets new people and *maybe* makes a friend who has a single brother, cousin, uncle or friend. Volunteer somewhere and you have fun, meet new people and help society.

A department store opened in New York City that sold men and a woman decides to visit it in search of a husband.
At the store’s entrance, there’s a sign outlining the department store policy.
The first rule states that you can only enter the store once.
There are six floors and on each floor you can choose a husband or elect to move on to the next floor.
You cannot visit a floor more than once other than to leave the building.

The woman visits the first floor.
The sign reads:
· Men with jobs.

She moves on to the second floor:
· Men with jobs that adore children.

She moves on the the third floor where the sign reads:
· Wealthy men that adore children and are very handsome.

She thinks to herself, “that’s a very good deal” yet moves on to the fourth floor:
· Wealthy men that adore children, are very handsome and help with the household chores.

She decides to move on as things are constantly improving:
· Wealthy men that adore childern, are very handsome, help with the household chores and are very romantic.

The woman is about to make her purchase but can’t resist moving on to the sixth floor.
There the sign reads:
· You are visitor number 31,456,012 on this floor.
· There are no men here.
· This floor exists as proof that it is impossible to please women.

First problem is the look on the face. Enough to make all but blind men run the other way. Second, is she obviously couldn’t find anyone, and out of desperation paid big money to “find” mister right.
Third is expecting an agency to find someone when she couldn’t.

Two failed marriages - that should be a clue here.

Maybe she ( and the rest of us too) ought to “first seek the Kingdom of God and HIs Righteousness and all these thing ( the other stuff in life) will be added....”.

She’d only have time for her kids.

Work on a more perfect self. People live decades seeking others to fix their problems when the problem is YOU.

Read non fiction and then attend support groups is the ONLY WAY to improve oneself fundamentally. The better you become as a person, the more and easier it becomes to attract quality people.

A more quality person is not attracted to a lessor quality person. A hard worker is not attracted to a lazy person.

Older people have problems that you look at and say, wow solve that years ago, like heavy drinking. Quality folks do not want to relive the same problems.

The flip side is I have seen divorced people immediately hook up with other divorcees. They are not looking for Mr. or Mrs. Perfect. More power to those type of folks as they rehook up rather quickly.

Not arguing your “I’d hit it” point....but let us discuss that photo.

She knew she was having a photo taken that was going to be published.

She chose that shirt, which is too tight for her beefy arms and the buttons near the belly, for her photo.

That is the best she thinks she looks.

That is what she thinks is makes her look like a 10.

Head scratching over here.

She looks a little like Hillary.

You sure you’d go there?

That’s a nice quality post, reflects lots of wisdom.

I always told my kids that people don’t come with warning labels, that you need to learn to figure out who people really are.

So much misery in life is because people mislead others as to who they really are.

She sings the lament of a frumpy middle aged woman that was no beauty in her prime.

And she’s obviously over 42.

She should have stayed with her kids father.

Now she has nobody, and never will.
