DEAR DEIDRE: I’M a tall, slim and handsome guy of 30, but I don’t think I’ll ever find a girl.
I’ve tried everything. Dating apps, networking through mates, nights out in clubs but nobody is ever interested.
I live in rural Ireland and drive but I seem to know everyone where I was brought up.

Why doesn’t anyone find me attractive? I don’t want to be a playboy but I’d like to have one bite of the cherry and perhaps find a partner.
DEIDRE SAYS: You describe nobody being interested in you, but are you interested in them?
Forming a relationship in a club may not be ideal but sharing a mutual interest in something may give you a better chance.
Do you have any hobbies? Check out meetup.com for some ideas.
People generally like to talk about themselves so when you approach somebody ask if they’d mind if you talk to them.
Ask open questions rather than ones which just require a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to start a conversation.
