Lonely spinster

Dear Queenie,

  I’m a single woman in my 30s with a good job and lots of friends and relatives. What I don’t have is anyone to be in a serious relationship with. I have had a few dates but there wasn’t anyone I wanted to get serious about. I would like to get married and have children.

  Queenie, how can I find a man I can love who wants the same things I want?—Lonely spinster


Dear Spinster,

  Stop stressing on the subject. Nothing puts a good man off more than the feeling that he is the prey in a woman’s manhunt.

  Let all your friends and relatives know what kind of man you would like to meet. Join groups that share your interests, and go to parties and other events where you can meet lots of people. And when you meet a man you like do not pounce on him – take it easy and let him get to know you slowly!
